Message from Scottish Water

crest2.jpg

Ahead of the school holidays, Scottish Water is urging everyone to stay safe around water this summer. They don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun but have a huge favour to ask…

If you’re planning on spending time at local beauty spots like reservoirs, rivers and lochs with friends and family over the summer, please treat these areas with respect and don’t take risks. This is especially important at our reservoirs where there are lots of hidden dangers like underwater machinery, strong currents and deep, cold water!

Watch their short film at  Respect Our Reservoirs - Scottish WaterRespect Our Reservoirs - Scottish Water and make sure you know the risks before you go.

STEM Survey

crest2

Education Scotland and the Scottish Government are very keen to hear what parents and carers think about STEM subjects. STEM stands for Sciences, Technologies, Engineering and Mathematics. Does your child love these subjects or maybe they are not so keen? Would you encourage your child to continue with STEM subjects or choose alternatives? What do you know about STEM jobs?  If you have a child/children in school (Primary 6 to S6) then you can help in the following ways.

1. Complete a short online survey by 01 July 2022. It will take approximately 10 minutes to fill out:  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/STEMParents2022https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/STEMParents2022

2. As an alternative to the survey, parents and carers can take part in an online focus group using the Liveminds platform. The focus group is live for a week with a new question posed each day.  Parents/carers can contribute as little or as much as they like, at a time that suits them - on a computer, mobile phone or other smart device.

Anyone interested in the online focus group should email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to confirm their interest.  They will then receive an email with joining instructions in advance of the focus group.

3. In addition, parents and carers can share the link to the learner survey with their children (if between P6 and S6) so they can also share their views directly: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/STEMLearners2022https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/STEMLearners2022

Your responses are valuable and will help shape the future direction of Scotland’s STEM Education and Training Strategy.

Broughton High School has been awarded the Scottish Languages Employability Award gold level.  As we have won this previously, in 2020, we have now been designated Platinum Languages and Employability Partner, the first school in Scotland to reach this achievement.

We gained this award for four employability projects:

  1.  Partnership work with Visit Scotland in our S1 interdisciplinary learning course, Enterprising Edinburgh.
  2.  Working with former students to create video profiles of how they use languages in their work.
  3.  An enterprise project with S4 students who created and sold languages themed bags and notebooks. Profits were donated to the Social Bite.
  4.  Partnership work with the St James Quarter. Our S3 Mandarin class was involved.

We would like to congratulate pupils and staff for their achievement.
