Junior Prize-giving 2017
We celebrated the many achievements and successes of our S1-S3 pupils last week at our Junior Prize-giving. Led by our Junior House Captains, we were entertained by S1s showcasing their Digital Learning, S2 pupils gave personal and reflective accounts of their recent Battlefields experience and two S3 pupils read out extracts of work they had completed in English. Our newly formed Cheer and Musical Theatre group previewed acts from their Showcase event and our star drummer and piper were both music to our ears. Our guest speaker, Jason Wagner, inspired the audience with the story of his career and the importance of creativity and team work in learning. Our Parent Council Chair, Peter Langley, handed out the prizes to our deserving winners. 194 young people joined us to celebrate, along with their families. We will continue to celebrate the successes of our young people at a series of assemblies this week.
Staff from Turner and Townsend met with our new Design Engineer Construct group last week. There will be many opportunities for our pupils to hear from industry experts both in class and on site visits over the coming year. We can’t wait to get started with this exciting new partnership.

Scottish Education Award
Three of our S1 pupils attended the Scottish Education Awards last week. We were shortlisted to the final 3 in the Learning through Technology category. Although we did not win, we have a great day out meeting other schools and lots of famous Scots! (photo attached)
We have a large quantity of unclaimed blazers of various sizes in our lost property room. None of them have any names on them therefore cannot be reunited with their owner. Can you please check with your child that they have their blazer, if not, please ask them to come to the school office.
BE PREPARED FOR SCHOOL
Please ensure that your child has their lunch card and locker keys with them every day and make sure that they have their PE kit and Home Economics equipment with them when necessary. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
