WESTHILL ACADEMY PUPILS WHO ARE GOING ON A TRIP TO CALIFORNIA BEING PRESENTED WITH TSHIRTS FROM TECHNIP

Westhill Academy pupils received personalised t-shirts and luggage tags from subsea contractor Technip ahead of their trip of a lifetime to the USA.

During the 10-day humanities trip, 60 S3 pupils travelled to the west coast of America, where they visited a number of natural wonders such as The Grand Canyon, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. They also spent a night with the Navajo Indians in Monument Valley to learn more about their culture.

Donald Whyte, principal teacher of guidance at Westhill Academy, said: “Thanks to Technip’s generous donation we were able to give each pupil a personalised T-shirt to help them stand out from the crowd when travelling through busy airports.

“This was extremely useful from a health and safety point of view and helped keep the group together. The shirts are also a fantastic souvenir for the pupils to keep as a memory of the trip.”

Frank Simons, HR and communications director for Technip, added: “Technip has a long standing relationship with Westhill Academy and for the past nine years we have worked together on a number of initiatives, including a recent project with Techfest Set-Point to promote engineering to secondary school pupils.

“We are more than happy to provide these T-shirts for the pupils’ trip to America and are delighted that they had a fantastic time away.”
