Euroquiz

What a fabulous morning of quizzing we had at Millburn Academy this morning for the Highland heat of the SEET Euroquiz.

I think we may have had our highest scoring rounds this year.  It was very close the whole way through the event and I thought the pupils were going to be putting me to work on the tie breakers but thankfully (for me!) we were able to go straight to the final round with Glenurquhart and Cradlehall who were high scoring in every round.

Cradlehall went on to win the final round and will now represent Highland in Edinburgh when they compete against the rest of Scotland in the final.

Thank you to all of the schools that came along today, the pupils who have worked so hard and the adults who have helped them along the way.  Well done to everyone who took part.

Social Enterprise Academy

The Social Enterprise Academy is a learning and development programme for people and organisations enabling social change with a focus on leadership, enterprise and personal development.

Fully funded by Scottish Government and delivered at no cost to schools, the Social Enterprise Schools programme aims to support young people to establish and develop a pupil-led sustainable social enterprise that reinvests its profits to address an explicit social and/or environmental aim chosen by the pupils.  It provides a hands-on and immersive learning process that meets an extensive range of Curriculum for Excellence outcomes, DYW initiatives, helps embed Learning for Sustainability whilst supporting the delivery of Sustainable Development Goals.  The programme engages pupils of all ages and abilities, developing skills for learning, life and work and enriches their sense of social justice.
