It was great to go to Peterhead Academy and present the awards to the pupils who took part in the scheme. A special award of a gift voucher was presented to one of the pupils for his outstanding engagement in the programme
Although a pilot project to see what was possible, the reception from the school, pupils and industry alike was amazing and we look forward continuing with this in 2023.
Thank you to the following people and businesses;
Lynne Gordon of the Community Learning and Development Team who ensured the young people were available for all the activities.
Gerry McCluskey Head Teacher at Peterhead Academy although new to his post at the school, is keen to develop links between the school and local businesses.
