On Friday the 11th of November staff from Oaklands School attended the SQA Star Awards at The Assembly rooms on behalf of former pupil Gregor Downie.
Gregor had been nominated in the School Candidate of the Year Category for his exceptional work in the Senior Phase at Oaklands School. Gregor obtained 19 National Qualification units and awards in a wide range of subjects in levels 1, 2 and 3.
Gregor received a highly commended award at the event along with a lovely prize and trophy. The SQA annual Star Awards are a unique way to celebrate success, triumph, achievement and recognition of the best in education and training. Behind every success story lies motivation and commitment, pride and self-esteem and, of course, a lot of hard work. The SQA want to reward excellence by both individuals and establishments, across all sectors of education and training.
A massive well done to Gregor, his family and all the staff who worked with Gregor throughout his years at Oaklands and we wish him continued success for the future.
