Booze Busters


Every Thursday, for the past 4 weeks we  have had Booze Busters. On our first session we had to design a name card. Ours were Zappy Zoe and Crazy Chantelle, we also had to do a quiz about alcohol.
The second week we discussed things about alcohol and how it affects you and we had to tick boxes about the people who influence us, such as mum and dad, brothers and sisters and yourself.
The third week we had to do a play with our group members and it was called peer pressure. Peer pressure could be if some of your friends were drinking and you didn’t want to but they kept on offering it to you. Acting the situation out helped us to find ways to deal with this.
On the last week we got mocktails – a tornado twist and tropical blast. They were so tasty!!!!!! To finish off we had a quiz. Each of us got a puzzle to take home.
The whole programme was great fun and we would like to thank the Booze Busters team of Chris and Kyle who delivered it to us.

Business Breakfast

On Thursday the 26th of May we had our Business Breakfast. 12 people were invited with different jobs to come and answer our questions and talk to us.
We spilt into groups of four, then we went into the hall and sat down across from one of the visitors.
The first person I got to ask questions to was Mr Rebecchi who is a local councillor in Inverclyde. Each visitor told us lots of information about their careers.
My favourite was the dance teacher. We are in dancing and we found out a lot of things we didn’t know.
The whole event was very interesting. (Lots of us particularly enjoyed the croissants and orange juice afterwards).
We would definitely like to do this again.
