In March 2018 the Lieutenancy launched the first of the Citizenship ceremonies in Lanarkshire involving secondary schools and  by the end of this year a total of 32 schools will have participated in the Citizenship ceremonies involving  around 1300 pupils and  80 teachers from schools in both North and South Lanarkshire Councils .

The photograph attached is of the pupils from Chryston High School who attended the recent  Citizenship ceremony on 18th December 2019 hosted by Provost of North Lanarkshire Council , Councillor Jean Jones and also attended by Deputy Lieutenant John McKenzie DL .

The Lieutenancy is very appreciative of the tremendous support from both councils for  this initiative which continues to go from strength to strength and now includes a very successful secondary school  public speaking competition on Citizenship which has  been staged on two occasions .
