Pupils build on their skills

LOTHIANS school pupils are among those taking part in a construction challenge competition.

Second-year pupils from 26 schools, including St David’s Community High, West Calder High and George Heriots, are taking part in the Construction and the Built Environment Challenge, which offers pupils the opportunity to take part in constructive teamwork and active learning outside the classroom.

Groups will be set challenges such as assembling a garden shed, tiling a replica roof and solving plumbing and electrical challenges.
