MELDRUM Academy has won the prestigious Anne Frank Award that promotes racial and cultural diversity. Pupils and staff from Meldrum Academy were presented with the top prize in a special ceremony at Aberdeen’s Pittodrie Stadium.
The school’s winning entry, entitled ‘Embracing Diversity’, comprised written work, posters and research into many aspects of diversity.
Award judges hailed the project, which included conferences, all-year group assemblies, newsletters, pupil-led interviews with senior school staff and other activities, as an impressive and highly inclusive project. The judges remarked: “The feedback from pupils demonstrated tolerance, respect, understanding and empathy with others. The pupils really do ‘walk the walk’. The competition is organised by Grampian Regional Equality Council (GREC).
