Shawlands Academy has picked up the Trades House of Glasgow Citizenship Award 2008, in recognition of the work undertaken by its Eco Club pupils in the community.

Now in its ninth year, the award encourages and rewards good citizenship in schools and is supported by Glasgow City Council's education department. It is open to all schools throughout the city - pre-5, primary, secondary and special needs.

Shawlands Academy beat stiff competition from other shortlisted schools in the final - St Martha's Primary, Annette Street Primary, Westercraigs Nursery, Lorne Street Primary and St Charles' Primary. This is one of several awards it has won in the past academic year which recognise its work in promoting sustainable policies and activities.

The school was used as a venue by the Scottish Government to launch its pound;18.8 million Climate Challenge Fund, because of the excellent work it has been doing in this field. It was also the first mainstream secondary in Glasgow last year to win a coveted Eco Schools Green Flag award for its efforts in making the school cleaner, safer and healthier.
