On Monday 26 – Wednesday 28 April, all primary 6 girls took part in two sessions to learn all about girls working with technology. We learned what STEM meant (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and all things digital. In the first session we learned what technology is and how old it is, and how we use it so much in our everyday lives. We also thought about what type of people we are and how this works in the world of STEM/technology. During the second session, we found out about encryption and coding, which keeps our personal information safe. We learned about how we all have a digital footprint and how the big companies (such as Mastercard) can data cluster what we buy to detect fraud if our card was used for something unusual. We learned that there are lots of technology jobs out there and lots of skills you can learn along the way in order to get one of these jobs in the future. We really enjoyed both sessions and possible careers in this industry.
Our Easter Assembly this year was all about hope. Everyone in school has written messages of hope and wishes to keep us all going during the pandemic as restrictions start to slowly lift. We hope you enjoy reading these as you go past school over the next few weeks.
We enjoyed a fun day in school today celebrating Comic Relief with a joke telling session and raising £237.00 in the process. Thank you to everyone for supporting this great cause by wearing red, telling a joke or donating money. We hope you all enjoy the show.
