Happy birthday, LO2S

We're finding it hard to believe, but our FAB.U.LOUS LO2S residential event has just finished for the TENTH year running! Young people from our partner schools across Fife and Tayside have been staying at halls of residence at St Andrews University and visiting different colleges and unis every day. Our partners laid on a great range of subjects for the new S5 pupils, giving them a real insight into some of the options at HE level. Where else can you study law, biological sciences, hospitality and animal care (to name a few) all in one week?! As ever, pupils report that LO2S not only enhances their knowledge about college and uni, but just as importantly really builds their confidence. Sophie from Fife said: 'I did LO2S having no confidence. I thought that just because I had never been considered a "popular person", it meant that I would struggle to meet new people and enjoy myself when I wasn't at the lectures. Well, I was certainly wrong.' Hannah, who took part from the 4th to the 8th of July said: 'The best part of LO2S is that it really allows you to look at all your options for continuing on to higher education. It's lovely to see all the different university and college campuses. You'll learn a lot, laugh a lot, and most likely eat a lot!' We firmly believe that taking part in LO2S can be a life-changing and transformative experience. Here's to the next ten years!
