A group of Grange pupils resisted the temptation to spend the day at home while their teachers were on strike today.
Rather than spending their day off in bed or playing computer games, nine pupils turned up to continue their vocational course at ATG Training in maintenance and engineering, as they would have done as part of their timetabled classes.
Stephen Smyth, marketing manager at ATG Training said it was entirely the students choice to attend the workshop.
He said: “The Grange told the students that they did not have to come to the workshop today however every one of them took the decision to attend.
“It really shows their commitment to the course and indicates that they are prepared to work hard to develop their skills and get their qualification with us.
“This was a really unusual situation for us - we were not expecting them this morning so we were pleasantly surprised when they did turn up.”
