Associate Worker, COOL Trust
I have been working in and around the Plockton High School region in the NW Highlands since 2001. I cover one of the largest geographical areas of Associate Trusts with the smallest population, with only one secondary school of 300 students and eleven primaries. Every school child within 30 miles of the office knows who I am as I deliver primary assemblies in every school once a month. I am a regular visitor to the secondary school, supporting a drop in lunchtime club, a prayer group and a Bible reading group. We run explorer courses for pupils who express an interest and offer pastoral support to staff.
As well as school support, COOL works in a number of local youth clubs and runs a weekly Friday Night Bible group, as well as area wide youth service events, roughly once a term.
COOL is a registered Scottish charity (no. SCO31455)
