Trin­ity pupils hon­oured for work as am­bas­sadors

Rutherglen Reformer - - Bereavement - Dou­glas Dickie

Trin­ity High School pupils have been hon­oured for their work in help­ing young­sters de­cide what ca­reer they would like to take.

Nine se­nior pupils at the school acted as My World of Work school am­bas­sadors over the last year.

The role in­volved them work­ing closely with Skills Devel­op­ment Scot­land’s Stephen Mann to de­velop the dig­i­tal My World of Work plat­form to feed­back their thoughts on how to make it more user friendly for stu­dents of their age.

They also pre­viewed some of the My World of Work ma­te­ri­als for their younger col­leagues in the pri­mary sec­tor, both at in­for­ma­tion evenings at Trin­ity and also in some of the as­so­ci­ated pri­maries.

Trin­ity head teacher Mr Peter Bollen ac­cepted a plaque from Stephen Mann in recog­ni­tion and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the work un­der­taken by the pupils.

Mr Bollen said: “This was a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for our young peo­ple to be­come in­volved with Skills Devel­op­ment Scot­land, whose work is of vi­tal im­por­tance in the De­vel­op­ing the Young Work­force agenda.

“Our young peo­ple spoke very highly of the new dig­i­tal plat­form and were very com­pli­men­tary about the ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing am­bas­sadors in terms of their com­mu­ni­ca­tion and in­ter­per­sonal skills.

“I would like to con­grat­u­late them for rep­re­sent­ing the school in such a pos­i­tive way and also thank Stephen Mann of Skills Devel­op­ment Scot­land for the op­por­tu­nity he gave the pupils to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gramme.

“Our col­leagues in the pri­mary sec­tor have been very com­pli­men­tary about the con­tri­bu­tion Mr Mann and Skills Devel­op­ment Scot­land made to their World of Work days and also about the way in which Trin­ity pupils acted as men­tors and role mod­els on these days.”

He added: “I would also like to take this op­por­tu­nity to con­grat­u­late the am­bas­sadors for the very pos­i­tive way in which they rep­re­sented Trin­ity High School and wish them well as they en­ter the wider wold of col­lege, univer­sity and work.”
