Report from Miss Halket
Pupils took part in a whole school mock European Union Referendum on Friday 17th June.
In response to the question “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” you voted as follows:
- Remain a member of the European Union – 76%
- Leave the European Union – 24%
It will be very interesting to see how our result compares to the outcome of the official referendum that takes place this Thursday 23rd July.
Report from Mr Smith
S4 Geography pupils visited New Lanark on Thursday 2nd June to find out about how the facilities there are powered exclusively by water power. We hiked up to the Falls of Clyde and admired the view, and we had guided tours of the living and working conditions when New Lanark was a functioning cotton mill.
Pupils are enhancing their political literacy knowledge and skills by learning about the European Union. They are developing their understanding of the arguments for and against EU membership and will take part in a whole school mock referendum next week.
S5/6 are preparing for taking part in the International Conference. Our Lady’s team will represent Syria this year and are very much looking forward to this event.
Final preparations are underway for the battlefields trip on June 20th when Our Lady’s High School’s 5th Pals Battalion will fall in for duty and head off to Belgium and France.
