Kellands Primary School has been commended in the UK Parliament for becoming one of Scotland’s Digital Schools. Kellands, in Inverurie, had to complete a rigorous self-evaluation programme, demonstrating the school’s excellence in integrating digital technology into learning and teaching to be awarded the Education Scotland accolade.
The parliamentary recognition comes after Richard Thomson, SNP MP for Gordon, lodged an Early Day Motion congratulating the school for receiving the prestigious award. He put forward the motion on June 9 praising the hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm of the staff at the school.
Mr Thomson commented, said: “I have had the pleasure in the past of taking part in some of Kellands Primary School’s digital learning by creating a video for their ‘Be Internet Legends’ assembly. As we live, work and socialise in an increasingly digital world, the next generation must grow up learning in a digitally-blended way where teaching is enhanced by technology. Kellands have demonstrated this wonderfully.
“Being named a Digital School is a great achievement. I would like to congratulate all of the staff and pupils at Kellands Primary School on this tremendous achievement and wish them all the best as they continue developing their digitally-integrated learning.”
