We looked at how many North Berwick High students progressed on to various post-school options.
Next task is to complete the Buzz Personality test and you will be asked for your animal later, so make a note of it. Make sure you look at the strengths, learning style and what you are like in a positive direction, parts of the printout you will be given at the talk.
