Wider Achievement Groups

Musical Theatre Group

Here is our talented Musical Theatre group who meet every Thursday after school and some lunchtimes during the week. Our rehearsals are exciting, busy and hard work but extremely rewarding and enjoyable. Students have the opportunity to develop their performance skills, from acting, singing and dancing as well as set design, lighting and stage production. New members are always welcome.

After their ‘Elf’ performance at the Christmas Concert, our Musical Theatre group are planning their next exciting production for June 2019! Watch this space…

Strathcarron Group 

Here at Bannockburn High School we have been formally supporting Strathcarron Hospice, our local hospice, for the past 6 years.  Strathcarron provides specialist care and treatment for people with life limiting illnesses and also provides family and friends with guidance and support too.

Our Strathcarron Group, with members from S1 – S6,  usually meets once a week to plan fundraising activities, and to discuss how we can continue to raise awareness of the hospice; we like to encourage the whole school community to get involved in supporting the important care that takes place there and we get involved in as many school based and community based activities as we can. 

Rights Respecting Group 

Pupils and staff are working hard in Bannockburn High School to achieve our Gold Award status for Rights Respecting School. This means that we aim to embed respect and the rights of the child into our procedures and policies, as well as every day interactions. This is a transformative approach that enables the pupil voice to be heard and respected, as well as encouraging pupils to be actively involved in school life and the wider community. It also encourages and recognises the work of both staff and pupils who are involved in global issues of social justice, encouraging an ethos of compassion, respect and responsibility for all.

Mental Health Ambassadors 

Euan and Katrina have been involved in a number of Mental Health Awareness initiatives both in and out with the school. They have been active members of the Stirling Young Peoples Wellbeing Group. Both attend the schools Mental Health committee sharing the needs and ideas from the young people. Katrina and Euan are actively involved in promoting Emotional and Mental Health in Bannockburn and are supporting our upcoming ideas and initiatives planned for the school.

Pixie Patrol 

A group of girls from S2 – S6 have met with all the girls in the school to share the Pixie Patrol promise – clean and free sanitary products will be available in number of areas within the school, for any pupil who requires them. Staff support has been given to allow the products to be as easily accessible as possible for any pupil. The Pixie Patrol regularly restock areas and are ensuring the products being provided are what the pupils in the school are using.

Young Enterprise Group 

S6 pupils have the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills as well as receiving an entrepreneurial experience.  Pupils will set-up and run their own company through the academic year with support from link teachers, local business volunteers and Young Enterprise Scotland staff.  At the end of the academic year, the companies will compete on a local, national and European level to be crowned Company of the Year.

My World of Work 

My World of Work Ambassadors act as champions for Skills Development Scotland’s award-winning career information and advice web service My World of Work, helping spread the word of the support it offers to their friends, fellow pupils, teachers, parents and carers.

If you haven’t used My World of Work before, it’s a fantastic resource, packed with tools, advice and information empowering users to make informed, confident career decisions. There are also dedicated partner and parent sections equipping teachers, parents and carers with resources, information and advice to support young people with career decisions.

By volunteering to be an Ambassador, pupils gain valuable experience and skills that are transferable to the world of work. Our team has already made a valuable contribution in the planning of our Wider Horizons Careers Events for our young people and their parents, engaging with employers and partners at these events.

They’ll improve at problem solving, taking the lead, planning and organising, working as part of a team, communicating with people and of course, gaining a deeper understanding of their own career management skills.

Their experiences can also be used to contribute to wider achievement awards, such as the Duke of Edinburgh Awards as well as adding weight to profiles, CVs and UCAS applications.

Duke of Edinburgh Programme 

The DofE program is designed to help prepare young people for the world of work.  A participant in the DofE award will be expected to take part in a range of activities from volunteering with a charity of their choice to learning a new skill, physical activity and participating in expeditions.  It is a passport to a brighter future with the award being highly valued by employers and universities.  It is a fun adventure and a major challenge with three progressive award levels available (Bronze, Silver and Gold) for anyone aged between 14 and 24.  The main differences between them are the minimum age you can start, the minimum time that it takes to complete and how challenging they are.

The Bannockburn High School Dance Team has been running at competition level since 2016. Throughout each academic session, teams from both the junior and senior school work together to choreograph routines, working towards entering the annual Forth Valley School’s Dance Competition, held at the MacRobert Arts Centre every March.

The teams meet once a week after school, with the pupils choosing their own music, costumes, hair and makeup and dance style. The junior team is led by a dedicated group of S6 pupils, with the senior team working together to create their own routines.
Everyone is welcome to join the Dance Team, with no previous experience or skill required, just a positive attitude and a passion for creativity, working together and a love of all things “dance!”
