Business is Booming!

Hamilton Grammar School hosted it’s second Business Breakfast at the end of September. This was an opportunity for employers and training providers to visit the school and network with pupils and staff. Pupils were paired with professionals within their field of interest and were given invaluable insight into what a day on the job really looks like.


Feedback was very positive from employers, many commenting on how motivated and inquisitive pupils had been during the event. Represented at the event were New Age Fitness, Brakes, NHS, Aldi, Routes to Work South, Banks Group and SSE to name a few. Special mention to Hannah McNicol of S6 for capturing the event so well.

Success for Kayla!

DSC_1016Following on from the post about the Scottish Apprenticeship Showcase at South Lanarkshire College in March, it is with great pleasure to announce that Kayla Findlay of S4 won The Carpentry Challenge. She was the fastest pupil on the day to successfully insert a number of screws into a board in 30 seconds. This event was sponsored by Mears Scotland Ltd and Kayla is seen here being presented with her Kindle Fire by Margaret Evans from CiTB. Congratulations Kayla!
