As ever, we were absolutely delighted to present the Wester Hailes Youth Agency Personal Achievement Award at the Forrester High School annual award ceremony which took place yesterday. We love to see young people fulfill their potential however, The Wester Hailes Youth Agency Personal Achievement Award is not all about coming top of the class. It recognises personal qualities, the efforts of young people and the ability to overcome difficulties, challenges or obstacles.
The recipient of the award this year was S3 pupil Rebecca Horton. Rebecca was selected for the huge increase in confidence and resilience she has demonstrated over the last year and thoroughly deserves this recognition. Rebecca has worked hard to overcome various obstacles and it has been a pleasure to see her change, grow and blossom. Her openness and honesty as she described her journey during her YPI presentation was an indication of just how far she has come.
We were thrilled to present Rebecca Horton with this year’s award and are excited to see how her school career develops.
