Report from Mrs Donnachie
Pupils from our associated primary schools as well as a number from Muirhouse, Knowetop, Craigton, St Brides and St Theresa’s visited Our Lady High school on the 9th/10th June to experience what life is going to be like in August as a new S1 pupil.
Pupils followed their timetable for some of the time giving them an opportunity to meet their teachers as well as their peers. They also met with their S6 buddy and for many of the Primary 7 pupils this was the highlight of their two day visit.
During lunchtime NLC provided all pupils with a free school meal allowing them to sample using the facilities of the school zone. S6 pupils who are studying CSLA organised lunchtime activities on the Tuesday and Mrs Deborah King and Mrs Angela McDonald, our Home School Partnership Officers, organised a competition during lunchtime on Wednesday in conjunction with senior pupils.
The P7 pupils all left exhausted after the two days but reassured and very excited about starting high school on the 18th August.
