Hardworking S1 pupils from Ross High School were awarded for their efforts towards the Chaplaincy Challenge this month. The competition theme was ‘Swimming against the tide’ and encouraged pupils to research a famous figure who they considered to be an inspiring role model for young people because they stood up for what they believed. A selection of pupils were invited down to Tranent Parish Church to be presented with their certificates for outstanding effort and monetary gifts for first place and runners-up. The Chaplaincy Team presented the winners with a trophy and gold medals, and the runners-up with silver medals, all supplied by the Tranent Churches. The entries this year were outstanding and a credit to the young people in their first year at Ross High School. An enjoyable afternoon was had by all- well done all!
The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh will once again be running their popular ‘Getting Into Medical School Information Day’. This year’s event will run at the College on Saturday 24 June and is open to S4 – S6 pupils from all schools in and around Edinburgh.
Convened by two of our local surgeons, pupils will have the opportunity to hear from current medical students, university admissions staff, foundation doctors, a military surgeon and the College President about all elements of the admissions process and the different aspects of a medical career. Topics ranging from how to choose your medical school through to your first year as a doctor will be covered.
