As part of the Sports and Recreation course, senior pupils took part in two days work experience with our local adventure sports companies. Freespirits, Splash and Nae Limits gave the pupils the opportunity to take part in some of the activities they offer – rafting, canyoning and cliff jumping to name a few. They also introduced them to the less glamourous side of the job – repairing and organising rafts and equipment and cleaning wetsuits. Got to keep it real!
Without partners such as this Breadalbane Academy would not be able to offer these incredible opportunities. We’re extremely lucky to work alongside businesses who recognise what young people have to offer and give up their time to engage with them. By working together, we can help to match the skills young people have with local employment opportunities.
