Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

A trio of pupils from Cathkin High have an ex­cit­ing sum­mer planned af­ter they won a place on a pres­ti­gious ini­tia­tive,

Fifth year pupils Le­wise Hart-Bain, Rob­bie Kerr and Zoe Yueng will take part in an In­spir­ing En­ter­prise Chal­lenge run by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.

With only 16 stu­dents from the 17 sec­ondary schools in the county gain­ing a place it was a ma­jor hon­our for the three, who were all nom­i­nated by their administration teacher, Ms Buchanan.

The two week ini­tia­tive will in­volve team build­ing chal­lenges and vis­its to es­tab­lished busi­nesses to build on en­ter­pris­ing skills.

Pupils will en­gage in chal­lenges and tasks within dif­fer­ent busi­ness sit­u­a­tions and work on their com­mu­ni­ca­tion, in­ter­per­sonal skills and prob­lem solv­ing skills.

Le­wise said:“I was sur­prised and hon­oured to be cho­sen for this chal­lenge.”

Rob­bie was also thrilled, say­ing:“I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity and every­thing it brings.”

Zoe added:“This will be an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity and I am look­ing for­ward to all of the team build­ing ex­er­cises.”

Ms Buchanan was very im­pressed with all three pupils’work ethic and ap­proach to the chal­lenge.

She said:“We are thrilled that the three pupils were cho­sen for the chal­lenge and I think all of them will ben­e­fit greatly from the two week long course.”
