Employability Event

Employability Event

Four girls Alannah Littlejohns, Ellie O’Reilly, Heather Stirling and Ciara McGrath (S4) attended a technology event at JP Morgan in Glasgow. The girls had the opportunity to develop their own app and website whilst enjoying copious amounts of pizza and goodies! They had an amazing day and have already asked to be considered for next year. The focus of the event was to encourage more young women into the fields of technology, software development and engineering.

Unfortunately the girls did not win a prize (first prize was an iPad each!), but they did come second in their category and were a real fan favourite!
