Pupils pay valu­able visit to Glas­gow Uni

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The Ad­vanced Higher English class at Cathkin High School paid a trip to Glas­gow Univer­sity last month.

The aim of the day long visit was to get help from staff and stu­dents with their English dis­ser­ta­tions.

S3 pupil Ewan Al­lan ar­ranged the visit as both his par­ents work at the uni.

The pupils – Holly Adams, Mor­gan Carmichael, Han­nah Coyle, Erin Milne Dunn, Jes­sica and Re­becca Greig, Cal­lum Harper, Lucy Hen­der­son, Ne­vada Hil­lon, Aimee Le­gowski, Anna McClure, Jac­que­line O’Hara, Carys Sharpe, Adam Suther­land, Lisa Toome and Cherie Young - had two hours with the stu­dents and a se­nior lec­turer from the English fac­ulty, He­len Stod­dart.

Pupils were paired up with stu­dents, who will visit Cathkin in a few weeks, and they worked on how best to write their dis­ser­ta­tion.

The se­cond sec­tion of the day was spent in the univer­sity li­brary.

English teacher Ms Ni­chol said:“It was a fab­u­lous op­por­tu­nity for the class to work with stu­dents who are en­thu­si­as­tic about lan­guage and lit­er­a­ture.

“I can’t thank the English Fac­ulty and, in par­tic­u­lar, Karen Allen, enough for al­low­ing us this fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence.”
