Category Archives: Welcoming visitors

Chris and Jet visited us at school.

Chris Lewis, and Jet the dog, came to visit and tell us all about their journey and why they are in Shetland.  We had great fun speaking to them and asked lots of questions and told LOTS of stories!!!!

They are walking the coastline of the UK to raise money for, and awareness of, SSAFA.  This is the charity that provides lifelong support to serving men, women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents.  SSAFA stands for Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, Chris used to be a paratrooper!!!!!

So if you come across Chris and Jet on their travels, please say hi, maybe donate money to their charity (if you are able to do so) and offer them a cuppa.  They love to meet new people and find out about all the different areas that they are visiting.  If you’d like to follow their story then you can find them on Chris Walks the UK on facebook.


Developing the Young Workforce

We have had lots of very interesting visitors to the school this week.  Claire Herridge and Jolene Johnson came in to speak to the pupils on Monday about what is involved in running a café.  The pupils were able to see the huge range of skills they are learning at school that they will need in the future.

On Thursday Dr Chevonne Angus came into the school to give pupils a description of her work at the NAFC and to tell pupils about the huge variety of courses and careers that the NAFC supports.

P4 – 7 are thinking about all the skills needed for work that they are learning at school and have started folders titled Developing the Young Workforce.
