The STEM Nation Award was developed by Education Scotland to celebrate, promote and build on effective practice in STEM Education. After a validation process of the submitted evidence, Kilmarnock Academy have been awarded of all five elements and are the first school in East Ayrshire to achieve the full award. Kilmarnock Academy were presented with the Award by Lorraine Ross, Education Scotland on Tuesday 20th February. The award is recognition of the wide range of STEM activity taking place within the school and will now open up doors of opportunity to international partnerships. Mr Rose, Head Teacher, commended the work of the Science Faculty and the wider school community, and thanked Mrs McAdam for driving and coordinating the submission to Education Scotland.
Mr Rose was delighted to congratulate Euan and Rohan who have been selected to play for the Under 18 Boys International Football Team which is an outstanding achievement from our two Killie lads. The two boys have been part of our Kilmarnock School of Football programme and also represented the school and region along their journey. We are all very proud of both of them.
Four of our S6 pupils have been working with Dr Susan Millar this year to gain a deeper understanding of a career in the medical field. Dr Millar has been on hand to offer support with applying to university for medicine and with advice on writing personal statements. She even came in to put our young people through their paces with interview preparation.
