Cycle Friendly Secondary School Award

We have been presented with the Cycle Friendly Secondary School Award, which recognises and rewards every secondary school in Scotland, doing what they can to encourage more cycling. We have been assessed as one of the highest scoring schools in the country for promoting cycling opportunities for young people who are placed at Rossie.
Gaining this nationally recognised award we now have access to many benefits including the provision of support and advice on how to promote cycling, assistance with identifying potential barriers and help to overcome them, and direction towards the many projects, services, and groups open to secondary schools.
Having this partnership with Cycle Scotland is beneficial for Rossie to continue growing cycling opportunities to promote health and wellbeing and lifelong learning by participating in physical activity and sport.
Thanks to Marianne Scott, Regional Cycle Training and Development from Cycle Scotland.

Rossie’s Throughcare Aftercare Facebook Page

Rossie continues to encourage and support young people when they leave us, and we are often provided with their stories of successes and positive outcomes via our Throughcare Aftercare Facebook Page.
Our Throughcare Aftercare worker, Jan Philip, shares some recent good news stories.
A young person who has moved away from her local area and set up a new life with her partner and baby girl; she appears to be a very happy mum who even sang one of her favourite nursery rhymes to Jan, while another young person is working with 2 youth clubs and looking to start an HNC in Health and Social Care.
Two young people have started working on their HNC in Health and Social Care, with one of these young women continuing to work well with Who Cares? Scotland.
Another young person has started a college course last year while another is successfully living independently and is now a qualified Chef working in a top restaurant.
One young person is living with family, helping to look after his younger siblings and working at McDonalds, and another is also successfully living independently and working (I believe) as a ‘gaffer’ at his local Farm.
A young person has now joined the army and tells me he’s grown up to be a responsible young man, he hopes to work as a Residential Care Worker once he leaves the army, and another young person has moved away from her local area and doing well as a single mum, enjoying looking after her baby girl.
Jan is sure there are many other positive stories she is yet to hear about and hopes to hear them all one day, but meantime Jan, and everyone at Rossie, would like to say VERY WELL DONE to all the young people who have been in touch. We’re very proud of you all!!
