S3 pupils took part in a Mitie World of Work Day event as part of community support work, where they received professional awareness training on Sustainable Development, Saving Energy/Recycling, top tips for career progress, interview tips, an overview of salaries in the green & facilities management industry. Key tasks for the pupils was to build a wind turbine using waste material and prizes were awarded. A fun day was had by all.
During the first week back this term a number of pupils had an adventurous week with the Ocean Youth Trust on the Alba Explorer – a round world challenge yacht. It left Oban to navigate around the Mull of Kintyre and visited Ireland before setting sail on the return journey to Greenock. All the pupils had a wonderful time experiencing and gaining many skills.
A second trip has been planned for pupils in June 2017 and further information can be obtained from the school office
