S3 pupils were involved in a half-day workshop in the Town Hall with
staff from the Tree of Knowledge. The focus was on how to prepare
for exams and setting future goals. The presentation was
interactive and very entertaining - each pupil was given a clock and
had to make a model demonstrating their ambition - this model stays
in the clock as a reminder of the event!
