Former pupils Rebecca Burns and Alan Campbell returned to the Academy on Wednesday 23rd January. Rebecca is a student of Psychology, who has also worked as both a student counsellor and as a volunteer with the Samaritans; Alan graduated last summer in History & Politics, and is now completing his MA.
They spoke to a group of Form VI students about the challenges of student life. The range of topics included: student loans, the pressure of work, difficulties of adjusting to student life and uncertainties about career options.
The sixth formers benefited enormously from the informative experience, and the Alumni Office is very grateful to both former students for contributing so significantly to the awareness of prospective students.
