A CARNOUSTIE school is receiving national and international recognition for its innovative work.

On Monday, teachers and pupils from Carlogie Primary School attended the Commonwealth Observance Day in Westminster Abbey.

The theme of the day was Enterprise in Education, and Carlogie was invited to take part in the event as a result of their entry to the Schools Enterprise Challenge - Global competition.

The school runs a Fairtrade café, and as part of their entry had to submit a business plan for it. The plan was judged the best in Europe and the school has received a £1,000 cash prize.

Carlogie Primary School has also become the first primary in Scotland to receive School of Co-operation status. It has been recognised by the Co-operative Education Trust Scotland (CETS) for two innovative projects which have brought together the school and wider community.
