Pupils and staff from Levenmouth’s two high schools recently attended a leadership conference with a difference.

For a week in November, 14 pupils from S4-S6 and two members of staff from Buckhaven High School and Kirkland High School & Community College participated in the Columba 1400 Donaldson’s Leadership Academy on the Isle of Skye.

The academy aims to focus on the qualities the young people already have and to develop those skills to enable the participants to realise their leadership capability.

Among the activities focusing on the values which make a good leader, the participants were given the opportunity to climb the Old Man of Storr while focusing on the values that make them who they are.

A search and rescue activity enabled them to learn about leadership in a team, while a presentation exercise allowed the pupils to explore their vision for the new Levenmouth High School.

This was very well received by headteacher Ronnie Ross and Roddy Lambie, school coordinator of the programme.

Both schools would like to thank Neil Donaldson and family for their continued support, without which the experience would not be possible.
