A group of pupils from S3-4 recently attended the annual Apprenticeship Showcase at South Lanarkshire College in East Kilbride. This event was planned to coincide with Scottish Apprenticeship Week and was aimed at heightening the profile of apprenticeships and allowing pupils to try their hand at painting and decorating, joinery and bricklaying amongst other activities. Feedback from the event was positive and we look forward to attending the event again next session.
During Scottish Apprenticeship Week, five S4 pupils went on a site visit to one of the training providers who work along side South Lanarkshire College offering the Engineering Foundation Apprenticeship for next session. The Foundation Apprenticeship is a fairly new initiative which allows pupils to learn within an area of interest and work over 2 years with the college and an employer to develop their skills. This qualification is recognised by most Universities and is an excellent opportunity for those wishing to pursue both an apprenticeship or those hoping to attend University or College when leaving school.
The boys completed tasks in electrical and mechanical engineering, with trainers commenting on how motivated and interested they were with the tasks set to them. Some of the pupils handed back their applications on the day and we wish them all luck entering into the interview and selection process for this exciting qualification.
Can all S5 pupils please to remember to bring their completed options forms with them tomorrow, Monday 5th March.

On Wednesday 21st February 17 schools (280 pupils) competed at the annual South Lanarkshire Dance Competition. Hamilton Grammar entered a team for the S1-3 category and a senior team. The competition is growing year in, year out and pupils across the authority continue to raise the bar.
Our S1-3 team performed a contemporary dance on mental health and our seniors’ theme was girl power. Both teams worked very hard to prepare for the show, rehearsing 4 times a week.
We are extremely pleased to announce that our S1-3 team won 1st place in their individual contemporary category and 1st place overall from hip hop, contemporary and mixed style. It was also a great effort from our seniors who performed an amazing routine, although not placing. Well done to all involved!
