RNLI Awards

With the Mallaig Lifeboat Crew

Today, two of the Superstars and Mrs Stewart attended the annual RNLI Awards Ceremony in Perth Concert Hall to receive a very special award.

We were invited to attend because we had done such a super job with our school assembly about beach safety and also with our class fundraising efforts for the RNLI. The RNLI knew all about us because Allan, who is the lifeboat mechanic in Arbroath and who attended our assembly, was really impressed and passed our video on to the RNLI education department who also liked it. Thank you, Allan!

We went through on the train from Arbroath and had our lunch with lots of other people who were also receiving awards. We were the only school there and lots of people spoke to us. We met some ladies from Arbroath who were also there. One was Mrs Campbell’s mum, Mrs Fulton, and another was Lucy’s (from our class) granny.

We were the first to go up on stage to get our award. While we were on stage they showed a picture of our whole class on a huge screen behind the stage. The awards were handed out by Sir Andrew Cubie, Chairman of the Scottish Lifeboat Council, and Coxswain Michael Ian Currie of the Mallaig Lifeboat Crew.

Thank you to everyone, especially Allan and also to Rachel, from the RNLI Head Office, who was very helpful in making arrangements for us to attend the ceremony. We had a great day.

Receiving our award.
Famous at last!
