As part of the S5 PSE programme, pupils worked in teams to research charities and social issues.

After choosing one to represent they each prepared a presentation with the winning team receiving a larger donation for their chosen cause.

A panel of judges attended the school to judge the presentations and the winners were announced on Monday, December 18.
