LO2S 2017!

Can you believe that the summer holidays are almost over? We certainly can't! 6 weeks of late nights, lie-ins, holidays, friends, shorts and, at some points, waterproofs are almost at an end. Don't despair though; we thought that we'd take this chance to cheer you up and remind you all of how SPECTACULAR this summer has been - especially for those lucky people who came to our annual residential in St. Andrews - LIFT OFF 2 Success (LO2S)!

98 new S5 pupils joined us in St. Andrews over two weeks - for a week of fact finding, traveling and socialising in a 'student for a week' scenario where they stayed in ACTUAL student accommodation; interacted with REAL students; traveled to 9 Colleges and Universities across Eastern Scotland and had an AMAZING time doing so!

Don't take our word for it; here are some comments from our Core Pupils who took part:

"It was honestly one of the best experiences in my life. I was terrified to go but so glad I did."

"LO2S, best experience of my life - I honestly can't say just how much fun I've had this last week, meeting new friends and trying new things. You all made it worthwhile and I hope we all stay in touch."

"Had the most amazing week! Met loads of amazing people that made it great along with all the staff!"

We've had so many more comments and we have been humbled by your response - so thank YOU! LO2S would not work without the support of our young people, parents and carers and our institutional partners across the region.

Also, remember that the LIFT OFF Team are here to answer any of your questions related to College or University at any time - send an email, FB message or call us and one of our smiling team will be on hand to put your mind at rest.

Finally - we'll be in to speak to new S5s over the course of the next couple of weeks so make sure that you are in school to see us as we have another great opportunity for you!
