An Aberdeen secondary school has become the first in the UK to win a prestigious award.
Harlaw Academy is to receive a gold award from children’s charity Unicef UK.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award is granted to schools that show commitment to promoting and realising children’s rights and encouraging people to respect the rights of others in school.
Ferryhill School recently achieved the same feat, but at a primary school level.
Aberdeen City Council co-leader Douglas Lumsden welcomed the award.
He said: “This is a fantastic accolade for the pupils and staff at Harlaw.
“The assessment report which led to the gold award demonstrates just how dedicated everyone at the school is to upholding the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
“Everyone in Aberdeen City Council and across the city as whole can feel justly proud of the two schools for leading the way for all schools in the UK in living the values of Unicef.”
