Emily Nix – Social Media Work Experience

By | Blog | No Comments

As a member of the North Ayrshire Youth Council Executive Committee, Greenwood Academy’s Pupil Council and Rights Respecting Schools Group and an Ambassador for the Year of Young People, I’ve found that social media is a vital tool for collecting people’s opinions, advertising events, and telling people how their views are being heard and utilised to take action on the issues that matter most to them.

Megan Armstrong- Social Media Work Experience- Greenwood Academy

By | Blog | No Comments

My name is Megan Armstrong, and I use social media to express myself. The use of social media has been part of my life since joining secondary school as a way to communicate and keep up to date with the larger number of peers I was and still am surrounded by. Since then it has become an important part of everyday life. Social media not only stands for a personal use but a vital part of my school and work.

Pamper, Prosecco & Cream Tea

By | Blog | One Comment

Don’t miss your chance for a real pick-me-up on Saturday.
The weekend is nearly here! Fancy a glass of prosecco and a cream tea with a friend in the sunshine? Or maybe the chance to pick up a treatment, a gorgeous scarf or piece of jewellery, or a lovely scented candle. We are hosting another Pamper Day at Geilsland, Beith on Saturday 20th May. Following the success of the last Pamper event on Mother’s Day it is sure to be a busy day and so we are highly recommending that you book your space in advance to guarantee that you get the chance of a beauty treatment too.

Bug Hotel

Bug Hotel

By | Activities in Beith, Blog | No Comments
What is a bug hotel, well it’s a place for bees, birds, beetles and other creatures to live or take shelter. As just like us, nature has a housing shortage.

Why build a bug house/hotel, well there are three good reasons, firstly for us all there is only so much you can learn in a classroom, through books, videos or TV.  To truly appreciate and understand nature you need to venture outside, use your senses and experience for yourself the wonder of nature. For as the naturalist and conservationist John Muir advocated experiencing and enjoying nature near and far means you are more likely to care and be an ‘active conservationist’.

Secondly in an age of immediacy a bug hotel/home teaches patience in its planning, construction and having to wait days, weeks or months to wait and see what creatures use it plus tweeting occurs outside not online. Read More

Corey Cup 2017
 Click on Corey Cup 2017  to view Photographs.

The Corey Cup is an annual school football tournament held in the Garnock Valley for children in P6&7. The tournament is in honour of young Corey Hamilton, who sadly passed away in 2013 after a battle with rhabdoid sarcoma, a kidney cancer aged just 9 years old.  Set up by Corey’s family and Beith Trust in 2014 the event is held annually on Corey’s birthday on 24 March and brings the Garnock Valley schools together in a friendly football competition where the teams compete to win the coveted cup and title.

The 4th annual Corey Cup was a fantastic competition with lots of fun and great football on display Beith Astroturf. The weather was unusually sunny which made the event even better and made it all the more fun for onlookers, parents and classmates to cheer their teams on! As ever the teams were split by organisers Beith Trust into play off groups, resulting with the two group winners playing in thesemi-finals, and then onto a final. Read More
