We then found our document in Pupil Shared Drive and continued working on it. P5-7 pupils then taught these skills to P1-4 committee members. All members will deliver training to their classes in the next fortnight.
5/12/18 We completed an audit of digital skills that we felt needed to be taught or revised. We then prioritised the skills. This will form our action plan for delivering to classes.
