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.
