Event description

Inspire our students

Inspire our students

We are running a week long event in school enthusing S2 classes about the importance of numeracy and maths skills, for life, learning and work. As a part of this we are running several sessions across the week asking local business leaders to come into school and share their experiences and ideas with our pupils.

We'd love you to talk to them about how maths skills are of benefit to you in your daily, life, your work and what you love about maths!
