Mr Peter Jaroz of the Skye and Wester Ross Fisheries Trust came to Gairloch High School in December; to present three S6 pupils, Roddy Macrae, Jack Wright and Sean Quinn, with OnePlus5 Smartphones (worth approximately £500 each) as a reward for working in their own time to develop an App for the Skye and Wester Ross Fisheries Trust.
Receiving the new phones will be a great chance for us all to progress with our careers as we can keep better communication with peers and other members of the work force. This job has given us an incredible amount of experience in working in the real world, having to meet deadlines and to work through all the problems that may have arisen along the way. These new and more developed transferrable skills will help all of us in our future careers and are rare in the work environment.
We would all hope to see future collaborations between Gairloch High School and Skye and Wester Ross Fisheries Trust so more people will be able to benefit from it in the same way we have.
We would like to thank Kevin Ginty for providing experience and knowledge in areas where we previously had none.
We would also like to thank Peter Jarosz and Dr Close for bringing the project to us and allowing us to take it on.
We really appreciate having this unique opportunity given to us.
Thank you once again,Roddy MacRae, Jack Wright and Sean Quinn
