TCA’s Peer Education Project reached the finals of the Young STAND Award 2014.

TCA’s Peer Education Project reached the finals of the Young STAND Award 2014. Four young people from Pitlochry High, Matt Allen, from TCA, and Janice McDonald, Deputy Head Teacher, all attended the finals at the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh. The young people had taken the lead in planning and designing the presentation as soon as they knew they were in the finals. At the Lyceum they confidently took to the stage, introduced the project, talking briefly about what they did before showing a film that they made especially for the STAND finals. They finished the presentation with short testimonies talking about what being involved in the project has meant for them. They did a great job! Sadly they didn’t win the overall prize but the experience and opportunity to attend the finals was brilliant and enjoyed by everyone.
