S3 Business Education – Review of the Year

Over the past year the S3 Business Enterprise class honed their entrepreneurial skills as they undertook a number of enterprising ventures with the aim of making a profit.   Working in partnership groups the pupils organised a Christmas Fayre, sold cakes, organised refreshments for the school show as well as collecting and selling second-hand books.  Net profit for the year was £150 which is to be donated to 3 charities each of which have a personal connection with one or more of the pupils.  ‘Befriend a Child’, the ‘MS Society’ and ‘Charlie House Charity’ will each receive £50.

The S3 Business partnership groups hosted a Christmas Fayre, sold cakes, organised the school show refreshments and sold second-hand books to return a £150 Net Profit.  3 charities, each with a personal connection to some of the pupils,  ‘Befriend a Child’, the ‘MS Society’ and ‘Charlie House Charity’ will receive £50 each.

Thank you for supporting our Young People.

Eyes Open Approach Encouraged for Children at Risk

Everyone in Aberdeen City should keep their Eyes Open for children at risk during the school holidays.

In the week that Aberdeen City’s schools sound the end of term bell, Child Protection Committees across Scotland are encouraging the public across the whole country to be extra observant to help protect potentially vulnerable children when school’s out for summer.

By taking an Eyes Open approach, Aberdeen City’s own child protection committee hope that members of the public will take a more active, watchful role when it comes to protecting children in the area and take action if they’re concerned for a child’s wellbeing.

“By keeping our eyes open and our other senses tuned in, we might spot the tell-tale signs that a child is at risk. These signs include seeing children wandering about at all times of day and night, children who are very dirty or unfed, unsupervised children going into “party” flats, or whose parents are drunk in charge of them. However, spotting the signs isn’t enough. If something doesn’t seem quite right for a child, or a family of children, it’s better to say something than do nothing.”

CPC Scotland Chair, Anne Houston

Anyone who has concerns about a child or children can ask the child if they’re okay, offer the family some support, or contact Aberdeen City’s social work service, or the police.
