Thursday 13th November 2014 (8.45 – 1.00)

The guidance team have arranged the above visit above for students in fourth, fifth and sixth year.

The cost will be £4.00 per trip to cover the cost of the coaches there and back.

We will meet in LZ7 (in uniform) promptly at the start of lesson 1 (8.45). We should be back for the start of lunchtime, so students can attend their afternoon classes as normal.

The Skills Scotland event is aimed at students planning to go into employment, training, apprenticeships or to college when they leave school. We would encourage any S5 and 6 students with plans to do so or to apply for any of these as a back-up to university to attend, and S4 students who are planning to leave or might leave in the summer to attend. Below is a short section from the event publicity information.
