Elgin High School has been congratulated by local MP Douglas Ross after being shortlisted for the Kellogg Breakfast Club of the Year awards.
This year, the annual awards are to recognise schools all over the UK for the role they have played to educate and safeguard children during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 12 regional winners will each receive £1,000 to put towards their club.
Scottish Conservative MP for Moray Douglas Ross said:
“The past year has been very tough for all of us, and our schools in particular.
“We are finally starting to see light at the end of the tunnel with the Covid-19 vaccine programme moving at pace.
“But it is important to recognise the work that has gone on in communities here in Moray during the pandemic.
“National figures showed a marked increase of nearly a third in the number of children attending breakfast clubs. Schools like Elgin High continued to provide this service through the Autumn last year when schools were back before the national lockdown from Boxing Day onwards.
“I’m very pleased to see Elgin High among the names on the UK-wide shortlist and I want to pass on my congratulations to all involved.”
