Lower Sixth students at St. Louis Grammar are given the opportunity to be involved in an enrichment activity on alternate Wednesday afternoons.
Many students have opted to gain additional qualifications during their enrichment periods.
Within school we offer qualifications in First Aid, Food Skills, iDea Digital Leader Award and the President’s Award. Students can also opt to be involved in fundraising for Friends of Romania, Industry visits, Pope John Paul II Award, Microsoft Certificate, Millenium Volunteers, Personal Money Management, Sports Coaching and SPRED.
The enrichment afternoon at St. Louis enhances pupil's interpersonal and organisational skills as well as providing an invaluable insight into the world of work.
Sixth Form students are actively encouraged to enter competitions to enrich their Sixth Form experience. Competitions such as The Pramerica Spirit of the Community Award, Diana Award, British Education Award, Rotary Leadership Award and the Young People’s Award allow students to challenge themselves, build confidence and motivation. These opportunities provide students with ‘something extra’ which can set them apart from others applying for high demand university courses. Due to the demand for university places and the competitive nature of the world of work we believe that each pupil should be continually developing their personal portfolio of work experience.
During their time in Sixth Form, pupils are also given the opportunity to undertake a work experience/work shadowing programme giving pupils the skills and experience that will allow them to stand out to potential employers and university admission selectors. We would like to publicly thank our link employers for assisting our pupils in building their work experience portfolio- they are truly indebted to you.
