The Youth Agency is proud to work in partnership with Forrester High School to help support the needs, abilities and aspirations of its pupils. Each year we present the Youth Agency Award for Personal Achievement at the school’s annual award ceremony.
This award looks beyond traditional measures of achievement and goes to a young person who has shown a willingness to work hard, overcome setbacks and develop their own potential.
This year we were delighted to present S4 pupil Rebekah Wilson with the award. Rebekah has been involved in a group work programme with staff from the Youth Agency for nearly two years. During this time, Rebekah has quietly grown in confidence and we have witnessed her blossom into a kind, caring and conscientious young woman. Rebekah has played an essential role within the group. As well as being supportive and inclusive of those around her, Rebekah has been open and honest in sharing her own experiences. Her peers have often found comfort and support from this as a result.
Rebekah has been a pleasure to work with and the Youth Agency is extremely proud that Rebekah is receiving this award.
