Whole School Careers Evening - Thursday 16th February

Last week our S3 pupils worked with a range of businesses and organisations on starting to prepare themselves for the world of work. The event ran in a speed networking format with pupils meeting briefly with a range of employers. They also took part in entrepreneurial workshops working with the Prince's Trust and corporate volunteers from RBS.

Following this successful event, Largs Academy will be hosting a Careers Evening from 6.30pm - 8pm on Thursday 16 February. This event is open to all pupils, parents and carers who will have the opportunity to drop in and meet with employers, universities and colleges. It is hoped all our pupils will start making plans for their future and have the chance to tap the expertise of our partner organisations in order to help them make information choices about their career pathway.

We look forward to seeing the local community at this event, please contact Mr Colville if you have any questions. Up to date information will be posted on our Twitter feed, @largsacademy.

Junior School Presents… Something Nuts!

Our S1 and S2 pupils have been working hard on their show, Something Nuts, which will take place on Friday 24 March. Over fifty S1 and S2 pupils will present the original show, which will feature singing, dancing and a crazy plot! The cast will be headed by S2 pupils Isabelle Winnington and Daisy Wilson. The night will also feature recitals by some of the school’s bands and ensembles, providing the pupils and their instructors to showcase some of the work they’ve undertaken this year. Tickets will be on sale soon – look out for news on our Twitter feed and – of course – here in the classchat column.
