Pupil Project on Phobias Wins Award for Curiosity and Inquiry

First prize in Lomond School’s inaugural ‘Greig Award for Curiosity and Inquiry’ has been awarded to Transitus 2 pupil Esme S.

Pupils who entered the competition were asked to inquire into a subject of their choice and present it any way that they wished.  They then met with the judges, Mrs. Greig (retired Lomond Junior School teacher) and Mr. Chambers (Head of Biology), to discuss their projects and the processes behind them.

Esme’s project examined phobias looking at what defines a phobia, the different types of phobias and their symptoms. There were a number of outstanding entries from J3 – T2 for the award with a wide, weird and wonderful range of topics including the Big Bang theory, things that we can’t see and the origin of stars, to name but a few!

A highly commended award was also presented to Junior 3 pupil, Laoch M, for his captivating project on the James Webb space telescope.

 The Greig awards were founded and are sponsored by former Junior School teacher, Mrs. Clare Greig who, on retiring from Lomond School last year, proposed a motion to sponsor a Junior School award which embodied her passion for STEM.    

 Head of Junior School, Mrs. Ailsa Lawn said:

“During her time at Lomond School Mrs. Greig’s passion for learning in the widest sense inspired many children…. and teachers!  We are delighted to be able to continue her work through the Greig Award for Curiosity and Inquiry which has seen our pupils from as young as six contributing fascinating inquiry projects, coupled with impressive presentation skills. All of the entrants were incredibly enthusiastic and motivated to learn and they should all be commended for this.  I would also like to thank Mrs. Greig and Mr. Chambers for their time and expertise in judging the award.”
