We have had a wonderful week, welcoming P7 to Gleniffer High School. Pupils arrived on Tuesday for two days of secondary school life. They experienced learning and activities in a range of subjects and tried out the social area and dining facilities. It was clear that pupils from different cluster schools were quickly getting to know each other and it was a fantastic atmosphere. We now look forward to seeing all the young people again on 1st June for P7 Sports Day before they officially start with us on 15th August. We hope they all have a fabulous last few weeks in their respective primary schools.
The enrichment programme continued this week with pupils getting involved in all aspects of recruitment! From writing CVs to Psychometric testing and interview workshops the young people were put through their paces culminating in Mock Interviews this morning. They have participated really well in the programme organised by Mr Marshallsay and gained a lot of knowledge and skills as a result.
Brian Costello delivered an inspiring presentation to S3 pupils this morning. The theme was motivation and ambition. Pupils were absolutely engrossed in the delivery and all feedback was really positive. Brian will be doing some more work with our Hearty Lives group throughout next year.
Mr Forrest’s S1 class enjoyed a trip to the Mitchell Library yesterday accompanied by Mrs Lawson our school librarian.
