Final STEMinar 22nd January

Well done to everybody who attended the STEMinar in heart surgery, it was very interesting but very long and complicated!

The final STEMinar will be held at Nairn Academy on the 22nd of January. Information letters will be issued soon.

Remember we also have to produce two posters to present at the Bridge to Employment Graduation and these must be completed at lunchtimes or after school. Mrs Woodcraft will put information in the Notices as to when this will happen.

December STEMinar cancelled

Unfortunately the STEMinar due to be held on Wednesday 10th December was cancelled due to the bad weather forecast. It has been rescheduled to Wednesday 7th January 2015. We will meet as soon term starts in January to discuss transport and permission slips.

December STEMinar

The last STEMinar in 2014 will be on Wednesday 10th  of December. It will be at Inverness Royal Academy and will involve two 45 minute sessions.  

One session will be on the British Safety Council Award. It will be run by Cap Gemini and there will be a work book to complete. If these are completed correctly  pupils will receive will receive a certificate on  British Safety Council – Entry Level Award in Workplace Hazard Awareness.

The other session is on presentation  skills. This should be very useful as all pupils will have to present a poster at their graduation STEMinar next year.

There will be a meeting in Mrs Woodcraft’s room at 11:00am on Wednesday 3rd December to get permission letters and more info.
