As part of their on-going commitment to their My World of Work Ambassadors roles, our new S6 pupils volunteered to take part in a transition event with pupils from St. John’s Primary School.
This event explored the aspirations of the P7 pupils, ahead of them starting High School in August. Pupils were also given the opportunity to recognise and challenge gender stereotypes within The World of Work.
This was the first time this careers based transition event has been held and given the feedback from our Ambassadors, we look forward to running more events like this next session!!
Special mention to Molly MacDonald and Chloe Rees for volunteering to lead the event and for all the other Ambassadors for their hard work and commitment throughout the year!
Hamilton Grammar would like to thank Xercise4Less for their help in the delivery of our S6 Core Physical Education programme. 40 pupils have been lucky enough to use the excellent facilities on offer at their gym in the New Cross Centre in Hamilton town centre.
As part of the school’s ongoing commitment to encouraging girls into the STEM sector, there was a STEMETTE Day last Friday. A Number of contributors volunteered their time to come into the school and offer workshops for our new S2 and S3 girls to participate in. The activities on the day ranged from costing a garden shed to using liquid nitrogen to freeze various objects. Pupils were able to learn the theory/ science behind a range of exciting activities.
Feedback from the female pupils has been very positive, and we will hope to run a similar event next session. Below is a small selection from the event, with more to follow.
