The S4 Dux Award winners:

Other plaudits go to Catianna Darragh who was Highly Commended and Barbara Jarzabek who was Commended.

Congratulations go to 6 Holy Cross High School pupils from S2 who were named overall winners at the STEM, Go4Set Textiles Celebration and Assessment Final held in Trades House, Glasgow.
The Team – consisting of Rumeysa Aydin, Elisa Carroll, Catianna Daragh, Melanie Ellis, Madison Gilmour and Oliver Higgins – worked for 12 weeks to design and produce:
- a jacket using smart fabrics and new technology in textiles,
- a 50-page report
- and a presentation poster.
The pupils chose to make a jacket which would be suitable for the homeless, refugees or people affected by disasters, either natural or man-made.
The Team received help from their industry mentor, Mr. Ian Whiteford from Alex Begg & Co, who invited the team to visit the Alex Begg factory in Ayr. Here the pupils were able to see how modern textiles are sourced ethically and produced. Alex Begg were also very generous and gifted a sample of material for the team to use in their final design. The Team were also assisted by teachers Angela Lynch from Home Economics and Angela Martin from Art and Design.
During the competition the team were grilled by a panel of three expert assessors and they performed superbly. They were unanimously announced as overall winners by the panel, who were “blown away” by the pupil’s effort in every aspect of the final competition.
