P7 Open Evening
On Wednesday 7th October, Whitburn Academy held it's annual Open Evening for the parents/guardians of Pupils in Primary 7 at Primary Schools within the school catchment area. Over 250 parents/guardians and children came to see some of the excellent learning opportunities and extra curricular activities that our schools offers.
The evening started with Tea and Coffee and the chance to look round some stalls set up in the Foyer by some of our pupils. Stalls included a photographic display by the Learning Support Department, information stands set up to promote Rights Respecting Schools and the Drama and Debating Clubs. Members of the group who are fundraising for the Vine Trust trip to Tanzania in Summer 2016, held a display of photographs, whilst some of the group cycled on Spin Fit exercise bikes as part of their sponsored event to cycle 5000 Kilometres, the equivalent of a journey from Whitburn to Tanzania.
This was followed by a brief welcome and introduction to the school by Mr Adair, the Rector of Whitburn Academy. Our guests were then split into groups and our S6 guides, took them on a brief tour of various departments around the school, including Science, DMG, Art, PE, Home Economics, Music, English, Languages, Learning Support, Social Subjects, Maths and Computing.
Feedback from our visitors was positive and we would like to thank everyone who attended, including the many pupils and staff who participated in a successful night.
