A CLYDEBANK school was said to have 'impressed judges' on their way to picking up a top educational award for languages.

Pupils across three age groups at St Peter the Apostle High School were praised for their 'passion' for languages such as Gaelic and Spanish as they landed the Gold Scottish Languages Employability Award from SCILT - Gold Scottish Languages Employability Award from SCILT, Scotland’s National Centre for Languages and the Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools.

The recognition award - launched in 2019 -  was developed by SCILT as a way of delivering DYW (Developing the Young Workforce) through languages, encouraging school-business partnerships and recognising good practice in this area.

Youngsters across S2, S3 and S6 wowed judges with their 'engaging' project submissions and their commitment to developing employability skills and providing rich learning experiences.

Feedback received on their entry read: “St Peter the Apostle High School fully deserves the award of a GOLD Scottish Languages Employability award.

"There are many highly commendable elements to this submission but perhaps the element that we felt was most outstanding, is the genuine sense of inclusion in this submission.

"Language and employability skills are genuinely offered to all in a wider achievement context that also supports positive cluster relationships.

"All of these projects have rich expansion potential, but already they are clearly offering results in terms of learner skills and confidence, and uptake.

"Once again, huge congratulations on all that is being achieved through these partnerships.”
