She gave a very informative presentation of her role in fundraising for this charity as well as discussing  the work at Marie Curie Hospice, Glasgow in  providing expert care and support in a friendly, welcoming environment. She discussed the services available to help support people living with a terminal illness and achieve the best quality of life whether that’s through helping to relieve symptoms, supporting families at a difficult time, or advising  on practical issues. While some people cared for stay at the  hospice for a short period of time, many others are supported at home by their  team of clinical nurse specialists. Dr Frame raised awareness that people may also come for the day for all kinds of therapies, support and activities including: 

• complementary therapies such as massage and acupuncture 

• wellbeing programmes  

• gentle exercises, art and craft groups, games and other social activities 

• emotional support sessions 

• outpatient clinics for expert advice from their  team of specialists

Tenner Challenge

This year the Tenner Challenge was taken up by 19 S1 and S2 pupils.  They were each given £10 from Young Enterprise Scotland, to raise as much profit as possible.  The pupils had four weeks for this task, which could be carried out either individually or as part of a small group.

The budding entrepreneurs passionately and feverously went to work, buying stock, advertising their goods, setting up stalls and constantly replenishing with new stock.  To say they were excited and enthusiastic would be a gross understatement!

 

After four weeks of various enterprise projects, the Tenner Challenge finally came to a conclusion and Mr Livingstone and Mr Cassels declared Daniel Geddes of S1 the winner.  Daniel’s success was down to hard work at lunchtimes selling a variety of popular cakes and buns to sweet toothed pupils and staff.  Daniel worked tirelessly on his stall and this obviously paid off.  Daniel was presented with his winner’s framed certificate and trophy.  He has been invited to the awards ceremony, where he will have the chance to be presented in the presence of his family.

Teenage Cancer Trust

Iona MacMillan from the Teenage Cancer Trust visited Kirkintilloch High School recently and gave an insightful and interactive talk on the issue of cancer in teenagers, what the signs are, how to take preventative steps and how this charity helps those affected.
