Project Trust

Are you S5/S6 and struggling to work out what to do after school? Perhaps you haven’t got a place on your desired course? A 12 or 8 month overseas voluntary placement could be for you.

I am contacting you to let you know that our last available Selection courses for your 2019 school leavers are taking place in February and April this year. There is still plenty time for them to apply and come up onto a course.

What is Selection? Selection is a vital and important part of the volunteer journey providing young people with the opportunity to learn more about Project Trust, the type of volunteering they could do and where they could go. Selection is based on the Isle of Coll which provides the perfect location to take a young person out of their comfort zone, meet like-minded others and get a taste for what an overseas placement will be like.

Please see more information about our website here and please see below for remaining Selection Course dates.

Tuesday 12th to Saturday 16th February 2019

To answer any queries, please see the response by our Transport Department which confirms the fares for the Lochloy Service bus which will start and continue from Thursday.

‘The Senior Transport Officer has confirmed that as this is a commercial service, Stagecoach set their own fares. He has been in contact with Stagecoach and they’ve agreed not to charge any fares until Thursday.  The single will be 80p and the return will be £1.20.’

This does not affect pupils who are entitled to school transport and hold a current bus pass.

S2 Pupil Notices

As part of our PSE programme we have invited Teenage Cancer Trust to speak to S2 pupils about cancer and health. Teenage Cancer Trust will be talking to S2 pupils on Thursday this week period 6. Pupils will attend their period 6 class where they will be registered and then their period 6 teacher who will accompany them to The HOB.

Teenage Cancer Trust is a national charity dedicated to help young people fight cancer. The presentation will include opportunities for students to learn about and discuss:

  • What cancer is
  • Common Signs and Symptoms
  • The impact of cancer on a young person
  • Types of Treatment
  • Healthy Living

By the end of the presentation all students should know more about early warning signs and how they can reduce their risk of cancer later in life.

If any pupil is uncomfortable about attending the presentation please let your Guidance Teacher, or Mr Chalmers, know in advance.
