Pupil Achievement

Our team of innovative S2 scientists were challenged to investigate circular economy and suggest practical ways that it could be implemented in our school. They responded with a fantastic project which took Williamwood’s waste wipes and converted them into classroom show-me-boards. The team worked together to research and plan their investigation and experimented with different methods of producing a show-me-board. The result was an excellent prototype show-me-board which both benefits the school and exemplifies circular economy in action.  Well done!

Scholar – Studying for SQA Qualifications

Scholar have released their latest support video for learners. This new resource, “Studying for SQA Qualifications Using SCHOLAR”, has been created to show learners how to use SCHOLAR in their studies as they work towards a National 5, Higher or Advanced Higher qualification. The video is suitable for learners with no prior experience of SCHOLAR, but may also be of benefit to students with summative assessments or exams approaching who may wish to use the interactive course materials and automatically marked, end of topic and end of unit assessments for consolidation and revision.
