School Wins Careers Award

REPHAD Primary has been named as one Scotland’s most career-minded schools.

For the Stranraer primary scooped Excellence in Career Education Award 2007 recognising their work last term promoting the world of work to pupils.

Career Scotland awarded the school the award for its projects that prepared children for the world of work.

Teacher Moira Baird said: “We were given the award because they felt we had embraced everything Careers Scotland want to make a workforce of the future.

“The children were heavily involved at every level with the various projects and were fantastic.”

During the last school year members of staff visited various industries, reporting back to pupils by holding presentations. While pupils were trained-up in the different careers open to them in the future.

And the children were encouraged to think out of the box while getting inventive by designing working models of eco-friendly vehicles — which were so good they brought them to the regional finals of the award.
