LO2S Week 1 - What a week!


The team still can't believe that Week 1 of LO2S went by so quickly and what a week it was!

56 pupils representing 11 of our 12 schools across all 3 LIFT OFF regions visited a grand total of 6 Higher Education Institutions to get a feel from subjects not usually studied in schools - from Psychology at the University of St Andrews and Biomedical Science at Edinburgh Napier University to Greenkeeping at SRUC, there was a great variety and our pupils were certainly up to the task! So much so that we received amazing feedback from our partner insitutions on how impressed they were with the pupils willingness to get stuck into the workshops!

The pupils clearly enjoyed themselves too! Our feedback was phenomenal, some comments include:

"I never wanted to come at the start of the week but I did and I had an amazing time despite being out of my comfort zone. I have made amazing bonds and friends for life. I will never forget LIFT OFF!"

Another pupil "had an amazing week, made lots of new friends and is now more confident in talking to new people." What more could we ask of our young people!

LIFT OFF staff are now preparing for our second week of LO2S taking place NEXT WEEK from Monday 15 July to Friday 19 July. Pupils who are attending should expect a phone call from one of our team today, tomorrow and into the weekend so keep your phones nearby!
