Local MSP, Fiona Hyslop has written to Armadale Academy after a team of pupils came second in the 2011-2012 East of Scotland Construction and Built Environment Challenge – a competition involving over 26 other schools from across Edinburgh and the Lothian’s.
“I am very pleased for the pupils at Armadale Academy. The pupils who participated should be extremely proud of their achievement.
“The enthusiastic pupils were judged on teamwork, following instruction, working safely, tidiness, time and accuracy and have proved to have mastered these valuable life skills.
“This experience will have provided the pupils with an opportunity to swap classroom learning with practical hands-on learning as well as perhaps establishing some future employees of the West Lothian construction sector”
