Live 'N' Learn

17 SEP 2020

S1 pupils at Dumfries Academy recently took part in workshops delivered by Live 'n' Learn. The pupils worked in small (socially distanced) groups on a series of activities focused on developing confidence and ambition. Although the format was different from previous years, pupils still enjoyed presenter Jen Kemp's motivational style and benefitted from the opportunity to evaluate their skills, think about their ambitions and improve their confidence.

S4 pupils also took part in workshops the following week. Their workshops had a different focus. Given that they are due to sit their first SQA exams in 2021, the S4 pupils focused on exam success. They learned about how to cope with stress, manage time and to develop good study habits. Again, Jen's style of delivery proved to be highly entertaining and ensured that the key messages for success were conveyed to the pupils.
