Activities Week 2022

The regular timetable of classes was torn up this week as Transitus-S3 pupils enjoyed a plethora of fun-filled events as part of Activities Week 2022!

From invigorating day-trips to mind-expanding in-school events, pupils relished the chance to try their hand at new skills and enjoy unique experiences, enriching and enhancing their educational, physical and personal potential.

Transitus pupils got involved in exciting outdoor learning, participating in field trips to Mugdock Country Park, New Lanark and Aberfoyle, before heading to the nation's capital on the final day of Activities Week, walking the Royal Mile and visiting Edinburgh Castle.

First Year pupils took it in turns to visit the Isle of Raasay and when back on the mainland, they learnt more about the story of our planet at Edinburgh's Dynamic Earth, as well as working with Primal Adventures at the nearby Dawsholm Park, learning how to build dens and hitting the target with a spot of archery!

Each Activities Week, Second and Third Year pupils enjoy the privilege of being able to tailor their week, choosing particular extra-curricular activities they would like to participate in.

The more adventurous had the chance to scale the heights at Glasgow Climbing Centre, bounce through a morning of trampolining or take on the assault course at Foxlake Adventures in Dunbar, while those looking to feed the body and mind were able to participate in mindfulness lessons, body balance and art sessions. Other enriching activities on offer for S2 and S3 pupils included a day of musical theatre, Duke of Edinburgh excursions, taster sessions in Mandarin, lego design sessions and the chance to experience team building via Navy exercises.

Commenting, Mr Leighton, Deputy Head of the Senior School, said:

Activities Week is a real highlight of the Summer Term for our Transitus to S3 pupils. It provides them with the opportunity to explore new skills and hobbies and pursue and fine-tune already-honed interests.

Pupils learn so much across this week, often without even realising it. Getting out of the classroom and being immersed in coding, cookery and climbing to name just a few, our pupils push themselves outside of their comfort zones, bond with their classmates and make memories.”
