From speaking and dealing with countless new people, from pupils in committees at school, to guests and visitors, I feel more confident in meeting new people. Also, having to take five assemblies at school developed my public speaking skills.

We also include many outside speakers in the upper school (S5/6), bringing a diverse and experienced insight to many other topics –

UCAS, SAAS, CV’s and Interviews, Napier University, Strathclyde University, Racism, Blood Transfusion Service, Organ Donation (Transplant Co-ordinators), Freedom School of Motoring, Heartstart, Teenage Cancer Trust, Cancer Research, Disability, Alcoholics Anonymous, White Ribbon Charity (Domestic Abuse), Stress, Positive Steps (Sex Education) and when possible Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service.

Upon leaving school we hope to have equipped the pupils to become active contributors and responsible citizens, able to leave their mark, in a positive way, on the world around them.
