Aims & Objectives We are planning to run Largs Academy Activities Sessions for pupils on Tuesday 26th June 2018 and Wednesday 27th June 2018. The aim of the Activities Week is to enhance pupils’ experiences through participating in a range of curricular, or cross-curricular events and trips to further improve the positive ethos in Largs Academy. All S1, S2 and S3 pupils will be included in Activities Week, which will mean allocating almost 600 pupils involved in activities over the two days. We plan to organise activities which will suit all interests and budgets. In order to run the Activities Week successfully, we hope to enlist the full support of Largs Academy staff (organising or supervising activities), parents (encouraging pupils to participate and covering the cost of trips) and pupils (having the motivation and enthusiasm to take part in activities). If you would like more information about the Activities Week, please contact Mr Sturrock, Faculty Leader Health and Wellbeing.
