Road Safety – Drop off and pick up

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please do not stop your vehicle in the middle of the road when dropping your daughter off in the morning or picking her up in the afternoon. There are a number of parking bays free in the local area where cars can be parked for a few minutes and pupils can enter/exit vehicles safely. As it stands, pupils are endangering their safety by entering and leaving cars in the middle of the road and significant delays are caused by stationary vehicles blocking the road entirely. Road safety is an important aspect of pupil safety and we would encourage all parents/carers to witness to responsible driving. Given the persistence of this issue, we have asked that the local traffic police have a presence in the area. Safety of pupils, staff, parents and local residents is of paramount importance and we appreciate your assistance in relation to this matter.

Arranging a safe pick up and drop off point a short distance from the school and away from the one way system is encouraged.

DYW Leadership Training with Glasgow Airport

On Wednesday, the 4th of October, the office bearers and I had the privilege of working with Craig and Beth from the HR Department at Glasgow Airport for a leadership training session involving psychometric testing. Before the session we were given a survey to complete, which asked us to choose words and phrases that were most and least like ourselves. Based on our responses to the survey we were given feedback that was presented in a personal profile, outlining the characteristics, values and strengths of each person. The information was also conveyed through three graphs which identified areas of strength and development of each person. We found that all of us had thorough, perfectionist characteristics, where we would be more likely to take lots of time to research things before making any decisions. We are less likely to demonstrate dominance and ‘in charge’ qualities. Continue Reading →

Morgan Stanley Work Insight Tour

Recently senior phase students studying Business Technology visited Morgan Stanley for a work insight tour. It was a very interesting and worthwhile trip which we all enjoyed. We were given a brief presentation about the company and the different committees within the company. We were then told about the different things they do out with the company, for example charity work and fundraising or visiting schools, donating kindles for pupils to support their learning. They then talked to us about the different ways people have joined Morgan Stanley, for example some people have taken internships or apprenticeships before working full time with the company. We also had female employees from different departments of the company come and tell us how they joined Morgan Stanley and their experience within the company. It was inspiring to see so many women working in a career that has previously been considered a male dominated field. The majority had no intention of going into that field but when they joined Morgan Stanley they found a job they enjoyed. They also talked about how Morgan Stanley has offices all around the world and that some departments have the opportunity to visit, for example the New York office or Mumbai office. They then gave us a tour of the building, and to be honest that was probably one of the reasons why the people like their job as they had a gym and a very fancy canteen. But what I took from this experience is the idea that the majority of the people we talked said they were in the exact position a lot of the 5th and 6th years are in now; the fact that we are beginning to identify the route we would like to take when we leave school. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and look forward to many more.
