House/School Captain Training

Friday 14th September 2018

S6 House and School Captains have completed day one of their training and planning weekend.   Twenty students supported by a range of school staff today completed a day of leadership activities with a focus on teamwork and communication.

Two minibuses ferried students and staff to Penicuik House.  Students erected tents and completed three main activities during the day.   The day also included a terrific lunch, prepared by the S6 students.  School Captain, Lucy Jack Hilton,  said ‘What a brilliant day.  One of my best ever at school.  I’m so looking forward to part two tomorrow.’

Our Saturday morning session will begin with students reflecting on lessons learned today, particularly around teamwork and communication.   Thereafter, the students will begin the action planning process to turn their brilliant ideas for the session into the successful events and products that will benefit our students and local community.
