S6 leadership and university preparation retreat at The Burn Scotland πŸŒπŸ™ŒπŸ»

Teamwork πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Our S6 pupils are currently on a three day team building retreat at The Burn Scotland. It’s the perfect opportunity to develop their skills and work together as they embark on their final year at Lathallan.

They’ve been raft building - working in teams to suss out the best way to plan, design and build their own raft, then take it on the water to test it.

Learning about knots, being resourceful, planning, construction, organisation, communication, confidence and trust!

The last week of the school term was a real whirlwind of emotion and pre-summer activities!

Over the coming days, we'll pepper your newsfeed with some of the highlights.

On Wednesday, our S6s enjoyed a retreat to The last for a farewell meal and overnight stay. It was a wonderful opportunity to give these Lathallians a memorable send-off.

A special thank you goes to Jennifer Broadley, Director at HealthyChat, for sharing life experience and words of guidance in an inspiring after-dinner talk.

S6s - cheers to your next steps beyond school, go confidently in the direction of your dreams! We'll miss you all.

It’s Bank Holiday Monday and our resident duck family is enjoying an early morning waddle in the walled garden. The ducklings are now nearly as big as Mum and The Burn is a great place to spread your wings! Keep a lookout for the partridge who is also a frequent visitor to The Burn. ... See MoreSee Less
