Prize Giving & Sports Day

On Saturday, Prize Giving and Sports Day, highlights of the Glenesk year, took place. Our Guest of Honour this year was Mr Ralph Kugler, the Chairman of Cognita. In his speech, Mr Kugler referred to Glenesk as the “jewel in our crown” and went on to say ” I have been to many different schools, in many different countries, and this is one of the very best schools I have visited anywhere.”

Mr Kugler also spoke about the Global Fund for Children, the charity that Cognita supports.  The GFC is focused on the most vulnerable children in the poorest areas of the world and in the past few months, all Cognita schools and employees have been raising money to support children who have suffered as a result of the two earthquakes in Nepal.  Glenesk has made a huge contribution to this effort, with a variety of imaginative projects.

After Prize Giving the parents and children enjoyed a fantastic afternoon tea, followed by Sports Day. All in all it was a wonderful occasion which everyone thoroughly appreciated.
