Two of our senior pupils, Cameron and Shaun, are about to move on to life after Falkland House School. Their achievements are too many to list here, however their keyworkers Ben Gannon and Kerry Nicoll have attempted to sum up their time at the school:
“Cameron joined FHS in 2014 and over the years we have taken pleasure in watching him grow in confidence and maturity.
Cameron is well-liked around the school for his humour and banter, and as a Peer Supporter he has demonstrated compassion, patience, and the ability to be a positive role model for the younger pupils in the school.
Cameron will be sorely missed at FHS, his humour and presence will have a lasting effect on those fortunate enough to spend time with him over the years. Memories of trips to Manchester to watch a champions league football match and a residential trip, alongside his insightful knowledge of football, ice hockey and capital cities will last for us all.
Cameron’s many achievements at Falkland House School include holding the title of first pupil at FHS to pass his theory and practical driving tests (first time!) to gain his driver’s license.
Cameron has made good, consistent academic progress during his time here, and has worked hard to achieve an impressive SQA profile. He has expressed a desire to work in Social Care, and with this goal in mind he has been studying Social Care at Perth College this past year. He plans to continue his studies there next year”
“Shaun has been a pupil at FHS since 2017 and has gone from strength to strength during his time here. One constant throughout this time has been what a respectful, kind and witty young man he is. This has allowed him to build strong relationships with peers and staff alike.
Shaun’s passion for sports and physical activities remains strong. During his time with us he has participated with great enthusiasm in everything from downhill mountain biking to kayaking. He continues to play basketball within his home area, and he was recently selected to train for the under 18s national team.
Shaun’s ever-increasing maturity and positive regard for those around him has seen him being selected to train as a Young Leader within the Outdoor Learning Team, and secured him a job as kitchen assistant within the school as well as a place on the Ground Care Team.
Shaun has worked hard to achieve the goals he set for himself and has recently applied to go to Army Training College at Harrogate – an aspiration he has had since he first started at the school.
We are very aware that the changes he has made during his time here have required a lot of work on Shaun’s part and this cannot be underestimated. We are proud of all he has achieved and know that he will be successful in whatever he chooses to do in the future.”
We wish them both every success.
