Dumfries Academy Senior Awards Ceremony 2020

04 DEC 2020

Congratulations to S5 and S6 pupils at Dumfries Academy, whose efforts and achievements were recognised at the school's (Virtual) Senior Awards Ceremony recently.
Pupils were nominated to receive an award for Merit or Excellence in a range of academic subjects. These awards are based on SQA performance and pupils are required to achieve an A Pass to be nominated. However, pupils who achieve 3 or more Higher passes at B level also receive a Certificate of Achievement for their noteworthy efforts in a range of courses. Given the challenging circumstances faced by our pupils during lockdown, their achievements must be considered even more admirable.
Various special awards and prizes were also presented at the ceremony. These are donated by former alumni, community partners and staff. We are always very grateful to those who donate prizes and our pupils very much appreciate the tokens of success, which will serve as memories for many years to come.

We are proud of our young people and the contribution they make to our school and the wider community. The awards ceremony gives us an opportunity to publicly share and celebrate their successes and commitment to the school’s values of Respect, Ambition, Responsibility, Fairness and Compassion.
Owing to Covid restrictions, we could not take group photographs for our virtual presentation. However, we did manage to photograph some individual pupils with their special awards.
We hope that by the time the ceremony comes around next year, we are able to hold it in school and to be able to share our pupils’ achievements in person and give them their much richly deserved round of applause.
