In recent years, Wester Hailes Education Centre has enjoyed a productive relationship with Edinburgh University. We work closely with Dr Neil Speirs who organises a summer term programme, for S1 students, from three Edinburgh High Schools. The students come together as a group, on Friday afternoons, to visit various University Faculties (eg Vet School, Law School)at locations throughout the city. The aim is to encourage the young people to work hard at school and to aspire to attend higher education at a university, when they leave school. This year, a dozen of our S1 students are participating in this programme which will culminate, in June, with an invitation to parents and family members to attend a celebration evening at Edinburgh University. The students visited the university’s Physical Education complex, before Easter, participating in sports activities. Last Friday’s visit was to The Museum on The Mound which gave students an insight into the history and the world of “money” and inspiring them to consider future careers in commerce and banking.
