The excellent partnership between a Carnoustie school and the business community was recognised at a special event earlier this week.
The Partnership Recognition Event on Tuesday at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel highlighted the good work done by local schools and businesses.
This year, in the primary school section, Carlogie Primary School was presented with the Partnership Excellence Award for their work with the Co-operative Education Trust for Scotland.
Montrose Academy won the secondary school prize for their work with the RNLI.
The winners were presented with a commemorative trophy for the school and the partner involved by Councillor Lynne Devine, vice-convener of education.
Also recognised for their good work were: Ladyloan Primary School and Arbroath Bowling Club; Letham Primary School and Letham Twinning Association; Arbroath High School and Gordon’s Restaurant, Inverkeilor; and Monifieth High School and Lipscomb University.
Congratulating the winners, Councillor Devine said: “I am so pleased to be presenting the trophies to these two winners. They are both excellent examples of partnerships in practice and show a clear commitment by both the school and the organisation involved. Partnerships between employers, the wider community and schools are helping to improve enterprise, employability and entrepreneurial skills amongst young people in Angus to help them prepare for a successful life beyond school.
“They also enable participating organisations and businesses to invest in the future of their business and cultivate an enterprising ethos in the county of Angus.”
Any businesses or organisations interested in working in partnership with schools in Angus should contact Lesley Watson, business liaison officer, on 01307 473632.
