Stonelaw High treated some of their new­est pupils to a trip away.

They trav­elled to Bon­aly Scout Camp in Ed­in­burgh to take part in a Skill and Val­ues day aimed at cre­at­ing pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships be­tween both staff and pupils within the school.

Through­out the day pupils en­gaged in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing sev­eral team build­ing games whilst also tack­ling the misty heights of Ja­cob’s lad­der and tak­ing the “leap of faith”.

The fo­cus of the trip was to con­tinue the schools pro­mo­tion of pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships whilst also es­tab­lish­ing, in each pupil the school’s val­ues and skills for life and work which have been agreed upon over the past year in con­sul­ta­tion with the whole school com­mu­nity.

The school be­lieve that pupils would, there­fore, learn about am­bi­tion, com­mit­ment, trust, re­spect and loy­alty, as well as learn­ing skills for Life and Work, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, how to be hard­work­ing, how to show lead­er­ship, in­de­pen­dence and team work

A school spokesper­son said: “Pupils had a very en­joy­able day where they had the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate new and build upon ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ships whilst also learn­ing the val­ues and skills which al­low them to be­come suc­cess­ful. Spe­cial thanks to the or­gan­is­ers.”
