Learn Together – Parent Conference Event

Learning Together, Mintlaw Academy’s first Parent Conference took place on Thursday 19th November 2015.

 Following a key note address from Mr Horberry, parents opted to attend up to three workshops/presentations on a wide variety of topics including Building Resilience, Internet Safely, Study Skills, Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce, Teenage Mental Health, Substance Misuse, Technology in the Classroom, and a session led by local employers on the employability skills they look for in young people.  There were also presentations from pupils on Wider Achievement and volunteering opportunities within the curriculum, and displays from the Mintlaw Academy Parent Council and PTA.

Parents had an opportunity to visit department and faculty stands and displays, enjoy performances by Drama and Music Department pupils and to view the work of pupils in the Art Department.   The event was much appreciated by all who attended.
