Mental Health Awareness Week

The S2 Business Enrichment classes would like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ everyone who took part in last week’s events to promote Mental Health Awareness Week.

Special ‘thanks’ go to all of the staff – Ms Pour, Mr Ajeda, Mrs Jeffrey, Ms McArthur, Mr Lambrou, Mr Cameron, Mr McCarron, Mr Robb, Dr Sugden and Ms Stuart – who took part in the “Soak a teacher” event.  Everyone was fantastic!

The event raised a magnificent £784.90 which will now be divided between SAMH and CAMHS, two mental health charities.

  • Fundraising games and stalls in the Conference Room during lunchtime next Friday.
  • A lesson has been prepared for Social Education classes.
  • Pupils will be asked to complete surveys about their mental health.
  • All pupils in S1-S3 will attend an assembly hosted by SAMH, a national mental health charity.

If you would like to support the programme in any way, please contact Miss Thomson (Business), Miss Hughes (Business) or Miss Thomson (CDT).

Visit to Bspoke Joinery

Our National 5 Practical Woodwork class enjoyed a visit to local business, Bspoke Joinery Ltd.  The pupils were able to look around the workshops; find out a bit more about careers in the industry, and have their questions about woodworking answered by the staff.

Thank you to everyone at Bspoke Joinery for taking the time to show our pupils around the workshops.

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.
