A PRESTIGIOUS award has been presented to an East Dunbartonshire school from the British Council.

The council recognises schools that introduce an international dimension to the curriculum by nurturing an appreciation of global issues.

The International School Award was presented to Bishopriggs Academy.

Mrs Alexander, principal teacher of religious, moral and philosophical studies at the Bishopbriggs school, described the award as a ‘tremendous achievement’ for the school.

She added: “It is an honour to receive this award and it shows that internationalism is embedded in the school curriculum.”

The school’s international work includes a German exchange programme, numerous Rights for Rights events, a Peace One Day Concert and ‘Battlefield Experience’ trips.
