Lunchtime Clubs

“Are you interested in games? Looking for somewhere to go over lunchtime? Then come along to the games club every Monday lunchtime in science room 2. Bring your lunch, board games and cards will be provided but feel free to bring your own games too.”

“Food for thought… A General Interest club will run every Wednesday at lunchtime with Mr Chambers. Topics will include psychology, philosophy, game theory, astronomy, computer animation and anything else you would like to learn about or share. If you are interested, come along to science room 2 on Wednesdays, bring your lunch and your brain”

Calling all S6 Entrepreneurs

Are you interested in experiencing firsthand the setting up and running of your own company in school over the course of the year?  It is your business – you elect the key staff from amongst the members, raise finance and design and market a product or service of your own choice.  Becoming a member of the Young Enterprise team is an ideal opportunity to gain invaluable personal skills and enhance your CV and UCAS Personal Statement.

Interested in being a member of the team, come along at lunchtime on Thursday 27 August to C18.  If you can’t make the meeting or want further information, please let Mrs Scott in Business Education know.

Connected Learning

East Lothian Secondary Schools now offer wireless learning for all young people. This means that young people can use school or personal devices to access a very wide range of learning materials online. This new opportunity creates important new responsibilities for young people.

At Preston Lodge we’ve come up with a guide, and brought in the web app Airhead, to support the introduction of Connected Learning to our classrooms. The following videos summarise our guide to Connected Learning and explain how to set up Airhead on your mobile device:
