Tianjin Scholarship

Congratulations to S6 pupils Henry Hyndman and Kirsten Keay who have been accepted into the Tianjin Scholarship, along with 20 other students in Scotland. It is very rare for two people from the same local authority to get into this program.

This program allows them to study for 10 months at the Tianjin Foreign Studies University, Tianjin, China.

Jack Irvine, the first pupil from Shetland to get into this program, is a current scholar in Tianjin. Read his blog.

On November 5th, S3,4 and 5 students at AHS had the opportunity to meet multi-award winning photographer and wildlife cameraman, Doug Allen. He led fascinating assemblies in which he shared the stories behind some of his most iconic footage as well as his thoughts on climate change and environmental impact issues.

Doug also led a photography workshop and judged a photography competition.
