On Thursday we had a fantastic event in Pinewood School. Our first in person prom in our new school. Pupils all looked fabulous in their special outfits, and the staff looked pretty good too!
What a fun time we had celebrating with our young people as they prepare their journey to life after school.
We had brilliant food prepared by our super staff chef’s in the kitchen, and welcomed some old friends back to school to join the party! With music, dancing, a Selfie Booth and lots more, what a night we had!
Last Friday some of our senior pupils were lucky enough to open their own pop up shop in Livingston Designer Outlet. As part of an ongoing partnership from before the pandemic closed our schools, we started our own business enterprise with the support of Livingston Designer Outlet (LDO). We designed our products, made them in class and even gained some National Qualifications along the way!
LDO supported the project with mentoring activities and supplying us with the signage and labelling to make it all look professional. We made clay pots, gardening tools and designed gift cards. We were so excited to seek our products under our brand name Pinewood Botanics, and loved seeing our pop up shop full of customers.
And of course like all hardworking shop workers, we were awarded Starbucks and Millie’s Cookies at breaktime organised by LDO, WOW!!
Too many great photos to add, but here are a few for you to see.
