Pupil in the spotlight: Kieran

Kieran has been at FHS for over seven years, and in that time has made magnificent progress. He entered the school with some significant barriers to his learning, but he has never let that get in his way, and he’s now leaving school at the end of this term with a highly creditable batch of Intermediate and National subjects.

Kieran is a great ambassador for the school. He completed a work placement with the Scottish Government, and latterly he has also been working with PUSH, a voluntary retail charity, who were so impressed with him that they offered him a job within the organisation.

However, Kieran’s long-term ambition is to work in the fitness industry and, to this end, he has enrolled at Dundee & Angus College to study Sport and Fitness. He’ll have a lot on his plate, as he plans to continue boxing training and attending Army Cadets too!

His cheerful presence will be missed by pupils and staff alike. In the words of one of his Keyworkers:

“You knew when Kieran was in the school  … he could always put a smile on everyone’s face. He is a real asset to the school. One particularly special memory of his time at FHS is when he carried the Queen’s Baton in the run up to the Commonwealth Games in 2014.”

Kieran’s future beyond FHS looks good. He leaves the school a responsible and mature young man, with the drive and confidence to go on and achieve his goals.

We congratulate him on all his achievements to date and wish him every success in the future.
