Starting away back in October 2014 the Go4SET team embarked on the Engineering Development Trust competition in association with the British Science Association to complete a project on the ‘Business of Recycling’.
This involved many hours after school and during interviewing staff teaching and non-teaching as well as pupils, researching, building our model etc.
We visited Levenseat recycling company for a day in February which was very muddy! With the help of our science ambassador from Levenseat we completed our project.
Below is a video from Inveralmond’s recent Trans World Soccer trip where students travelled to London to visit Wembley and the Emirates stadium before taking in a match at Old Trafford on the way home. As well as the sightseeing, the students also took part in matches themselves..

Inveralmond took part in the West Lothian Pump It Up Challenge sponsored by Mitsubishi Electric and the West Lothian Chamber of Commerce on Thursday 23rd April 2015. Pupils had to design a creative product which used a heat pump for use in very day life. The product also had to work in with helping the environment by reducing the use of fossil fuels.
The pupils were in groups of 4 or 5 and had 4 hours to design their product. In this time they also had to design an A3 poster, PowerPoint, research green energy and present their idea. Four winners were selected and had to present their idea to Linda Scott, Head of West Lothian Chamber of Commerce and Annabel Mansell of Mitsubishi Electrical.
We met at the school at 5.00am on the Wednesday and everyone was buzzing for the trip ahead (apart from the teachers who looked half asleep!).
On the first day we arrived at Wembley Stadium (which had nothing on Hampden!) and played a world cup five-a-side tournament amongst ourselves which was a great laugh. We then travelled back to our hotel and got settled for the night.
On the second day we visited Thorpe Park which was a blast. A lot of the group loved the rollercoasters, yet some of the group felt the need to spend £30 + on trying to win a cuddly toy! One boy even spent over £100.
On the last day of term before the Easter break Miss Spence’s s2 fitness group took part in a fundraising event raising money for ‘Together in Sport, Rwanda’; a charity which is run by Miss Spence in the PE department.
The girls participated in a team marathon ‘Run for Rwanda’. This was a huge challenge for the girls as for many of them this was the furthest distance they had ever ran!
Each pupil got individually sponsored and together they raised over £500!! This money together with another £500 from a dress down day has enabled Miss Spence to build a full sized basketball and volleyball court out in her school in Rwanda.
