Chromebook Information

In partnership with The Highland Council, Gairloch High School will provide every pupil in S1-S6 with a Chromebook and a range of digital learning tools and resources to assist and enhance their learning at school and at home. The much awaited delivery of Chromebooks is due this week and we hope to get them out to pupils ASAP.

We have prepared this short presentation for parents and pupils which outlines why we’re excited to use them, answers some common practicality FAQs andhighlights how both pupils & parents can join with the school in ensuring that pupils use the internet for good. There are also links to a few other websites & documents which you may want to refer to.

Chromebook Agreements have gone home with pupils today. These should be read together with your child and the signed slip returned to school. It may be useful to keep the agreement at home and refer to it if the need arises.If parents/carers have any questions, please feel free to get in touch and we’ll try to get them answered.

 

S2 Army STEM Ambassadors

S2 pupils worked with STEM Ambassadors from the British Army on a day of STEM based problem solving & digital skills activities.

S2 Robot Building & Programming with Army

In the first session, they thought about the equipment difficulties faced by the forces abroad. They worked in teams to come up with innovative, creative solutions to safety equipment which would withstand the heat and heavy use.

In the afternoon, they worked to build & program a robot which could navigate a path. This was tricky as every small change had implications for the rest of the route!
