Fyvie Primary School and teacher Fiona MacNab have garnered a double nomination in the finals of the Scots Language awards 2020.

Pupils are nominated as Scots School of the Year and Mrs McNab as Scots Teacher of the Year.

The school as a whole embraces and encourages the use of Doric language and are proud of pupils for their efforts with Doric Poetry.

A particular favourite Doric activity was where the children in P4/5 last year, along with Mrs MacNab set themselves the challenging task of producing an animation telling the story of the song the Tod, by Matthew Fitt.

The task proved to be even more challenging than expected when the technological challenges were compounded by the advent of Covid-19.

With the likelihood of a lockdown looming, they worked together and supported each other exceptionally well to compress a planned three to four weeks’ work into only four days to complete and edit the animation before lockdown started.

Other local nominees include Banff Academy and Huntly born singer Iona Fyfe.
