Boroughmuir's uniform includes neckties.
What made Boroughmuir stand out to the judges? Well, one selfless 15-year-old took time out to read stories to preschool children at his local library each week for a year. Another raised $100 for the Scottish SPCA by sponsoring silence during school hours for three full days. And teacher Jane O'Thy said school kindness is not restricted to single events. It's embedded into the curriculum. "That's why we won the award," she said, "because we do it all the time."
