Through the Pupil Equity Fund, S1 and S2 pupils took part in the Outward Bound Project.
Pupils were able to take part in a number of outdoor pursuits during their week away including raft building, canoeing, rock climbing and hill walking. Each of the enjoyable activities allowed individual pupils to improve their self-confidence and communication skills. The pupils achieve the Outward Bound Trust’s Adventure and Challenge Award (SCQF level 5).
