On Wednesday 9 December, the 11 Diana Award winners attended the first ever Diana Award Inspire event at the Emirates Arena. At this event, pupils received their certificates at an awards ceremony which featured motivational speeches from Lesley MacDonald (Netball Scotland) as well as a performance from Nicholas McDonald of X-Factor fame. Pupils also participated in a series of workshops about sustaining their community involvement as well as planning for the future. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt that the activities were worthwhile.
