Former pupil

Meeting former pupils is often really satisfying. None more so than today when I walked in to the staffroom at lunchtime to be greeted by a 'girl' I taught 15 years ago at Portobello High School. Catriona is in Liberton High this week as part of a Health Education Team delivering a programme on sexual health to our S3. It was great to chat to Catriona about her ambitions to become a film director and find out about how successful she has been in her studies.
As part of this team of young adults delivering health education to S1, we also had four of our S4 girls:

  • Chloe Logan
  • Gemma Maclellan
  • Elise Littlejohn
  • Kimberly Lambe
who elected to do this as their work experience placement. I was really impressed and so proud of their mature and sensible approach. I look forward to finding how S1 pupils react to being taught about 'life' by youngsters who are just a few years older.
