Our Summer 2022 Newsletter is available now. We hope everyone has a great summer break and look forward to seeing you all again in August.
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 Water and make sure you know the risks before you go.
Great night at Hampden Park last night (Monday 20 June) for @PerformSchools Graduation Ceremony. Well done to all pupils and staff involved.
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/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.
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/STEMLearners2022
Your responses are valuable and will help shape the future direction of Scotland’s STEM Education and Training Strategy.
