Pupils at St Elizabeth’s Primary enjoy getting some careers advice


It was another busy week for pupils at St Elizabeth’s Primary, with the whole school focusing on careers and technology.

Youngsters welcomed Murdo Morrison, a former Harris Tweed employee, who visited the older pupils to tell them about the company and the Isle of Harris.

Mr Morrison brought many samples of the cloth process and explained the vital input from weavers that is required to keep the cloth’s approved status.

He also discussed with pupils the textile industry and its employability potential.

Then the children enjoyed a visit from Scotrail and Energy Networks employees who were there to promote Rail Safety Week and renewable energies.

Murdo Morrison, formerly of Harris Tweed, visited St Elizabeth’s senior pupils.

Pupils used drama to make the ‘Safe Rail’ message meaningful and learned about the role of Transport Scotland.

Finally, Colin Wylie from Energy Networks encouraged the children to make pylons and discover the need for connectivity within the National Grid.

He explained the importance of technology to keep our lights, on and the potential of renewable energy for future careers.

Depute head teacher Christine Emmett said: “A big thank you to all of the visitors to the school during our careers and technology week.

“The pupils learned so much about varying careers and how technology plays a part in those jobs.”
