Throughout the year our pupils and staff have the opportunity to take part in various activities and events that require talent or the use of a particular skill. This page is designed to show our pride in, and commemorate the hard work and achievements of individuals within our school.

Enterprising Mathematics Award

This remarkable competition can trace its origins to the former Tayside Region and, in particular, to Mr Clive Chambers, former Adviser in Mathematics, and a group of enthusiastic colleagues. Heats are held throughout the country and the winning teams are invited to take part in the National Final. During the 1990’s this Final was hosted by different authorities in turn. To help to ensure the long-term future of the event, the Scottish Mathematical Council took over the running of the National Final with effect from  2000.

Long Service Award

The purpose of the Long Service Award is to recognise those employees who have dedicated themselves to the service of this Authority for a continuous period of years, subject to meeting the eligibility requirements. EHS is proud to have a dedicated staff base who are devoted to the education of our pupils and the quality of life within the school.
