WHEC students reach out to others!

Volunteering

Community Involvement Day – S4 students from Wester Hailes Education Centre volunteered in the community to expand on their personal experiences, gain valuable life skills such as organisation, communication and motivation as well as giving back to the community and helping others. It was a great opportunity to build stronger relationships and connect with our local community and partner agencies. The placements: Union Canal, Bridge8, Youth Vision, Water of Leith, Broomhouse Community Centre, Edinburgh College, Digital Sentinel, Whale Arts, Sighthill Library, Sighthill Primary , Canalview Primary, Clovenstone Primary, Wester Hailes Library, Heriot Watt University, WHEC Pool and crèche.
