Over the next couple of weeks our Active Schools co-ordinator, Steven Percy, is conducting a survey of pupils participation in sports and physical activity. This will be carried out in class (mainly PLP classes), where pupils will be asked to complete the questionnaire at the link below
On Friday 8th March, pupils from Beckford Primary, Chatelherault
Primary, Quarter Primary, St Johns Primary, Woodside Primary and Hamilton
Grammar School will have a ‘dress down day’. All pupils will be expected
to wear a colour from the Uganda flag – red, yellow or black. All money
raised on the day will be used to continue our support for sponsored pupils’
education in Uganda.
Over the last couple of months, tutors from Glasgow University have visited the school to work with our S2 and S3 pupils. They hosted sessions which revolved around subject choices and career pathways ahead of these pupils finalising their subject choices. Pupils found this helpful and were able to link various skills they develop whilst studying various different subjects. The final instalment to this program will be on 6th February, when the tutors will be working with S1 and considering their future career paths.
Some departments have been working to highlight the wide variety of pathways available to pupils within their subject areas. In particular, Music and RMPS have created displays within their departments which promote these careers. With subject choices currently being finalised with our S3s, this is an ideal time to have a look and see where each of your favourite subjects could take you. For more information, The My World of Work Website has more information for pupils and parents….
