We hosted the first ever Course Choice Evening on Tuesday, 15 January.  The evening was well received by parents, pupils and partners with more than 300 people attending the event.

During the evening, guests received a presentation from Ms Penrose informing them about the new curriculum model and process for course choice for the upcoming academic year.  Presentations were also given by Fife College to launch the new School College Partnership and Lisa Devine, part of the Foundation Apprenticeship team from Fife Council, who discussed the offer of Foundation Apprenticeships within the school.

Participants had the opportunity to speak to Careers Advisors from SDS, staff from The Open University, representatives from Fife College, our own faculty staff and colleagues from Fife Council’s Foundation Apprenticeship Team.

We would like to extend our ‘thanks’ to everyone who made the event such as success.

A number of pupils in Technologies were fortunate enough to spend the day at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust at the end of term.  The pupils had the opportunity to get some valuable practical experience of traditional building skills.

‘Thank you’ again to the staff at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust for sharing their knowledge and skills with our young people.
