The aim of the session was to create two bespoke 'Whodunnit?' scenarios for teaching staff to use as part of the S1-S3 Social Health & Wellbeing Week.
Portlethen Academy teaching staff were delighted to have support from local entertainment company Right Here Productions to help plan 'Whodunnit?' scenarios for the S1-3 Social, Health & Wellbeing week.
Thanks to the support and expertise of industry professionals, the teacher's vision was brought to life. Staff were then able to successfully develop and run the activity for all S1-3 pupils as part of their Social Health & Wellbeing Week.
The activity acted as a catalyst for pupils to explore their local area. They spent time outdoors, worked together and developed relationships with their peers and clan tutors.
“I was so grateful to have the opportunity to work with industry professionals to help plan and organise these fun and interactive 'Whodunnit' sessions as part of our Clan experience days during Social Health Week. It was fascinating to hear about their pathways into their careers and the many job opportunities available, some we were not even aware of, that we can now raise awareness of with our young people.”
