Pupils from Fraserburgh Academy took part in an annual event in Aberdeen dedicated to the memory of Anne Frank.

The Anne Frank Awards, organised by Grampian Regional Equality Council, aim to promote the values of diversity, equality and human rights.

Fraserburgh Academy focussed its entry on Fairtrade and Water Aid and the pupils took part in a number of activities including cooking for a Fairtrade café, designing infographics for the Montgomery Education Centre as well as other fun team challenges.

Callum McCaig MP said: “We are all very proud of the pupils at the Anne Frank Awards, who have worked hard to showcase the importance of equality, diversity, citizenship and human rights.

“These values are fundamental to a fair and strong society, and it is great to see that passionately celebrated by young people in Scotland’s schools.

More than 300 pupils from 15 schools across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray delivered a series of presentations at the event as the initiative attracted a large number of entries with around 600 schoolchildren taking part overall, each of whom received a GREC Anne Frank Awards certificate for their efforts.
