As you may be aware many pupils struggle to motivate themselves into revising for exams and this can be a difficult time for both pupils and parents. With this in mind, we decided to offer an excellent opportunity for pupils to get their Higher maths revision off to a great start.
On March 14th – 16th 2014 24 pupils attended a weekend revision camp run by QHS teachers at Auchengillan Outdoor Education Centre. Pupils left from school on the Friday at 4 pm and returned to school on Sunday at 4 pm. Over the course of the weekend pupils revised work that they have covered over the year with a focus on exam questions and techniques. Pupils were shown strategies for revising in order to achieve their best potential.
While study was the main focus of our camp it was important that pupils learned how to pace themselves to get the most out of their study. To this end a range of outdoor activities were also built into the programme. Pupils were able to choose from archery, water walkers and archery.
A great weekend was had by all!
Maths Camp 2K15 is already in the pipeline! Friday 13th March until Sunday 15th March 2015, a group of 30 senior pupils and 5 teachers are heading off to Auchengillan to enjoy a full weekend of maths, outdoor activities and a whole lot of FUN!
