This week, all pupils will visit our annual Scholastic Book Fair in the library, with the opportunity to buy from a selection of the latest and most popular books for young people. Pupils can use their £1 World Book Day vouchers to make a further saving on the great prices.
This year, there is the option for parents to make payments direct to Scholastic by phoning 0333 305 2963 and quoting the school’s account number: 32700783. If paying this way, please give Mrs. Howie in the school library a note of your transaction code and the amount paid.
After being postponed due to snow, all of our S1 have now completed our annual sponsored Readathon. This sponsored charity event was to raise money for Read for Good who provide a regular supply of brand new books and storyteller visits to children in hospital all over the UK.
S2 Digital Skills
8 young people in S2 spent 2 days last week at Codebase learning about games and app design. The 8 were the winners of our S2 Digital Skills Day in November. All 8 were a credit to the school and developed lots of skills that they are keen to share with their classmates.
Festival of Youth
12 young people in S1-S3 spent a morning at Codebase last week at the Young Enterprise Scotland Festival of Youth event. They were inspired by entrepreneur Gavin Bell and were challenged to come up with a new feature to be added to a popular social media platform. Congratulations to our team of S3 girls who were the overall winners.
Young Enterprise Scotland Forth Valley Finals

SHS Cheer Team
The Stirling High School Cheer team were in action on Wednesday night competing in the Scottish Schools Championship at Denny High School. The event was the culmination of months of hard work by the girls and Miss Robb and would see the team compete against the best in Scotland. Stirling High School had the largest team at the event and all years groups were represented which is an indication of just how popular the Dance and Cheer clubs are at the school. The girls performed amazingly well and matched the performances of schools much more established in the competition than themselves. Well done to Newbattle High School and Alva Academy who placed 1st in the Cheer and Pom events respectively.
The Senior Boys Basketball team made the journey through to the Oriam in Edinburgh on Thursday to take on Hillhead High School in the Scottish Cup Final. They were defending the title that they won comfortably last year against the same opposition, however this year turned out to be a much closer affair. The boys drew on their experience of playing together for the past 6 years to come back from a 4 point deficit going into the 3rd quarter to run out 88-93 winners in the end. A huge congratulations to all the boys involved in this massive achievement, not many schools around the country can claim to be back to back National Champions!
