Val Vannet, early pioneer of this forum, gets high recognition
« on: September 05, 2016, 09:44:48 PM »


Val Vannet, Geography teacher and Deputy Rector at the High School, has been awarded the Royal Scottish Geographical Society's (RSGS) Tivy Medal, a prestigious honour which is given for exemplary, outstanding and inspirational teaching, policy or work in education.

Val was an early and very enthusiastic and committed pioneer of this forum; she helped many teachers with her creative and innovative ideas as well as her wise counsel. Her RSGS award is just recognition for her contribution to geographical education, not just in Scotland but much further afield too.

Having worked closely with Val over a great number of years firstly via SLN and then with SAGT I am delighted she has been presented with this award from RSGS. Val has, over the years shared so many ideas, resources and above all her enthusiasm for this wonderful subject. A very special lady indeed.  :)
