Pupil Achievement

Common Purpose is a course where pupils from Rosshall worked with other high schools in Glasgow. The first course was a three day trip to different places across Glasgow. The first day we met up at Kelvingrove Museum in which we teamed up into groups to try to make Kelvingrove more popular to people between the age of 13 and 20.

On the second day, we met up at the Burrell Collection to work with other schools to test how much better we worked in a collaborative manner.

On the third day we met up at STV Studios on the River Clyde. We were given a tour of STV to see how a television studio works. We were then given the opportunities to go to one of three places: The Southern General, Govan Police Station and STV.

We were then given a challenge to change something a successful money-making idea. George Foster, Ibinabo David-West, Mark Wood and Rachel Hart chose to do a project on poverty in the UK. When we returned to Kelvingrove we presented the information in front of the public. We got given a careers talk from Olly Norman (Creator of DaDa Public Relations). He said that a simple idea can become a money-making success. He spoke of how business' have their ups and downs. He certainly made us more determined to go out and succeed in life.
