Respect Me – Anti-Bullying Week November 2017

Respect is at the heart of all healthy relationships.  Our S1 pupils have joined us from over 50 Glasgow Primary Schools and beyond.  We value all our young people and want them to feel part of our community.  Making new friends and maintaining existing friendships is a huge part of school life.  We have a programme of support to help young people to develop key social skills that will enable them to enjoy healthy and long lasting friendships.  Over the last month, our S1 pupils have benefited from a number of Health and Wellbeing sessions highlighting the difference between positive and negative behaviour within relationships and strategies on how to cope with bullying behaviour.  Takeaway Theatre Company and Police Scotland delivered interactive workshops and presentations which also included valuable online safety and cyberbullying education.  Mrs Henderson, DHT Pupil Support introduced Anti-bullying Week to S1 and S2 with assembly workshops called ‘Respect Means’, pupils had their photos taken as part of a national conversation about what respect means to young people.  Our Pastoral Care Team will deliver follow up PSSE lessons called ‘Responding to Bullying’ and feedback from pupils will be analysed and shared with staff, parents and pupils. Please look out for this on the website in the coming weeks.

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. (more…)

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.
