The British Nutrition Foundation has announced the top Scottish teachers and students in its annual awards for excellence in food technology, home economics or food and nutrition.

The Standard grade winners were Wick High pupil Elizabeth Sinclair and her teacher Evelyn Dunnet. At Advanced Higher, the honours were taken by Arbroath High pupil Emma Watson and teacher Edna Hepburn.

Winning students from throughout the UK attended an awards ceremony in London on November 25, and were each presented with a cheque for pound;100 and a certificate from John Beddington, chief scientific adviser to the UK Government. Teachers received cheques of pound;200 for their school, and certificates.

Stephanie Valentine, deputy director general of the British Nutrition Foundation, said: "Some of these schools have won these awards more than once. This is evidence, not just of brilliant and hard-working students, but also of excellent and inspirational teachers."
