Shared Education Event - GCSE Options Choices

On Wednesday 23rd January Grosvenor’s Year Ten pupils continued their highly successful ‘Shared Education’ initiative, alongside their contemporaries from Lagan College and Our Lady and St. Patrick’s College, when they participated in a workshop focusing on GCSE Options Choices.

Within the workshop pupils were required to work in teams of four to complete a number of challenges suited to different skill sets; the team with the most points at the end proving the victors. In addition, pupils looked at various different careers choices, the skills and educational qualifications that are required for each and had a problem to solve in ranking the careers, in terms of salary, from highest to lowest, before the day ended with pupils reflecting on their own choices that will be made this year.

Many thanks to Grosvenor’s Shared Education co-ordinator Mrs McClements who was responsible for organising the pupils’ involvement in this most worthwhile event.
