As part of our new Senior 6 programme, groups of S6 pupils have been working together to come up with ideas on how they can give back something to our local community.
Each group looked at their skills and tried to pair them up with local needs. As a result, three exciting projects came to fruition.
Mrs Jack’s group took an environmental approach, choosing to embark upon beach cleans. On their first bean clean, the group found very little litter but on their second clean they found lots of plastic and litter which they collected, segregated and recycled. They then wrote to the local the local council, MPs and MSPs to let them know about the project and to highlight the constant need to keep the beach clean and safe for the public to be able to use it safely.
Mrs Aitken’s group volunteered at a Visiting Friends Christmas lunch. They group designed cards, made crackers filled with homemade goodies and organised a collection to make up beautiful hampers for the raffle. At the event they helped make and serve lunch and drinks and chatted with guests.
With several accomplished musicians in the class, one of Mr Fleming’s groups decided to play music in the community. The S6 Saxophone Quartet played in Rhu Primary to help promote music to young people and performed as part of the Christmas Events at Hill House and on the main stage as part of the line-up for the Helensburgh Winter Festival. The other group organised and ran very popular football skills coaching sessions with our younger pupils in Clarendon spread over two lunchtimes.
The feedback from all the community groups the pupils worked with was excellent and we are very proud of how much thought and effort they have put into this project.
