Community Action Week

S3 pupils enjoyed a busy week of community work and team building as part of their Community Action Week.

 

Pupils enjoyed a busy week lending a hand and team building as part of their Community Action Week. 

S3 enjoyed dividing their time between an outdoor centre in Newtonmore, working on the school grounds and volunteering with local charities across the West of Scotland.

Several pupils assisted the Glasgow Humane Society, with others completing a Troon beach clean and helping charities including Action for Children, CHAS, St Rollox Community Outreach Project and much more.

At the outdoor centre, pupils enjoyed taking part in gorge walking, which for many included a jump from a 20 foot cliff into a burn. 

Dozens of pupils rolled up their sleeves to create a brand new school allotment, transforming a disused piece of land into an exciting place for the school community to plant and nuture fresh vegetables

The aim of this week is to teach the pupils the importance of working together and pushing themselves to reach their full potential. 

The S3 Year Tutor Team would like to congratulate the pupils on their achievements and thank all members of staff for their encouragement. 

Very well done to everyone involved, to see more of the pupils in action click here
