Harry McLevy Award

Congratulations to Molly Fowlie winner of the 2012 Harry McLevy Memorial Award. The S3 Modern Studies investigation competition, which is open to pupils from across the nine city schools, involves pupils researching, analysing and writing up an investigation on an issue related to their Standard Grade studies. The highly topical theme of Molly's investigation was whether or not Child Benefit should continue to be paid to higher rate taxpayers. In selecting Molly's entry as the citywide winner, the judges commented on Molly's range of research, insightful analysis and excellent presentation. As well as a certificate and a prize of £20 as the school winner, Molly also collected a second certificate and a further £50 as the citywide winner. The Harry McLevy Memorial Award is jointly organised by the Claverhouse Training Group and Dundee Modern Studies

Association and has the support of Dundee City Council.
