P6/7D enjoyed a tour of the local ScotMid Cooperative supermarket this morning. Lynne and Alexander showed us what goes on behind the scenes and we also had a go at shelf stacking. P6/7D found out how the shop runs and the importance of technology in ordering and keeping track of items. They found out about the different jobs you do when you work in the shop. Pupils were interested to find out about the work that ScotMid does with its community grants and support of charities. They found Fairtrade products within the shop. Pupils were also interested to see the improved fridge systems and cold storage facilities and the environmentally friendly systems in place. They kept track of the thermometers throughout their visit. They were amazed to learn about the CCTV system, which can be viewed from Head Office in Edinburgh! Lynne and Alexander were happy to answer any questions and gave the children a reusable shopping bag and some fruit as they left. Thank you very much Alexander and Lynne for making us all so welcome!
