The positive impact made in the community by High School of Dundee pupils is to be recognised and celebrated by a brand-new award.

Supported and run by the Parents’ Association in partnership with the School, the High Impact Award will champion those who have made a real difference to the lives of others, through innovation, enterprise, charity, caring, bravery or other public-spirited activity.

Taking the form of a £250 donation to the winner’s chosen charity, the award is open to all pupils in Forms 4-6 who can show that, motivated by a desire to help other people, they have contributed to improving our communities to an extent worthy of particular recognition.

Pupils, both individually and in teams, will be able to nominate themselves, or be nominated by friends, parents, teachers or the School.  

Deputy Rector Lise Hudson said, “This is a superb initiative which will recognise the impact of those pupils who go the extra mile in helping others.

“It will champion and celebrate the power of young people to make a significant difference in their communities and allow us to recognise our unsung heroes.

“We are indebted to our parents for the energy and commitment they have demonstrated in making this Award possible. It is such an exciting and worthwhile initiative and I am very much looking forward to seeing the results.”

High School of Dundee parents can find out more about the Award, and access the nomination forms, for which the deadline is February 28th 2018, by following this link.
