Julie Flockhart

Supporting Armed Forces Pupils

Hello!  My name is Julie Flockhart and I work at Firrhill High School.  I have been a Food & Consumer Technology teacher in the school for 16 years.  I have a new role at Firrhill, which is to support the learning of our Armed Forces pupils.

For pupils in school – I am in school every day to help you if you have members of the Armed Forces in your family.  I will support your in-school learning, and am also here for any concerns or worries that you have.  My office is down in the Guidance department.

Currently we run an Army Welfare Youth Group on a Wednesday after school, in the Learning Centre 3.35-4.30pm.  This is run by Zakia Yousaf from the Army Welfare Service Community Support Group.  All are welcome to join us for a chat, play games and meet new people in a relaxed space.

If you want to get in touch – you can call me on 01314414501 or send me an e-mail at Julie.Flockhart@firrhill.edin.sch.uk

Supporting Armed Forces Families

Hi everyone! My name is Lynn and I work at Children 1st. We are an organisation that supports families in Edinburgh.

For young people – I will be in school every week to help you if you have members of the Armed Forces in your family. I will support your in-school learning and can give you an extra hand in staying connected to your learning and building your use of technology to learn at home!

I also know that life is not always easy – so if you want to talk about any worries you have – about school, home, relationships or your own feelings then I am here to listen or help.

Mums, Dads and carers – keeping up to date with technology is not easy (believe me I know!) so I can help you learn some of this online stuff too! I also know all about how challenging daily family life is or can be , so if you want any advice or support around any issues you may have, from X to X or X then I am here to chat at a time and place that suits you.

If you want to get in touch or know more you can ask a teacher or you can call me on 07960780158 or even send me an email at lynn.mcgilvary@children1st.org.uk
