Ochil House Report 3rd October 2017

PTN News Update by Alison Gow, Parent Representative for Ochil House
October 3rd 2017
 
Very busy first term as always.  Senior pupils have 2 sessions each at Greenroutes and FVC.  At College a group are doing a 6week block of a variety of subjects including Child Health, Film Production, Work Experience, working towards possible work placements. This is enhanced by some of the 6xS6's also following an Employability programme within school.

For the first time, 2 S6 pupils have elected as HeadBoy and Head Girl of Ochil House, where they are beginning to take a lead role in the department, developing their responsibility and maturity.  On behalf of WHS PTN, we would like to congratulate Jack Martin and Taylor Cairney and wish them a successful year in their significant roles.

Looking forward to this week's Open Evening for potential parents/carers of P7 pupils and S1 parent/carers.  Since the beginning of term, OH have welcomed  two new pupils who are a great asset to the department, and we welcome a new S1 girl and S5 boy.

Topic work in S1/2 is India.
In S3/4 also India and All About Me
S5/6, very full timetable College/Greengroutes but also focusing on Core Skills/ life skill and Health Nd Wellbeing.

Classes are enjoying periods with mainsteam's Spanish teacher Mrs Bell and Technical with Mrs Crawford and Mrs McAdam. They are making excellent progress towards their John Muir award making Bug Boxes and things for the garden.

Music Therapy continues with great enthusiasm and effort.  Suz and Rory are returning following the October holiday from Scottish Music Youth Initiative for 21 weeks where all classes will follow a new theme across music and arts following last years successful Carnival theme.  Big Noise are taking 2groups on a Tuesday and are having lots of fun doing a Garage App!!!

Finally, on behalf of the PTN, I would like to congratulate S3 pupil Jenna Wardrop who attended the Forth Valley Disability School Swimming Championships on Friday 29th September at the Grangemouth Complex.  Jenna won 3 gold medals and has now been selected to compete in the National Championships in Glasgow in November - a great achievement , well done Jenna!
