Primary 7’s Leavers

An emotional end to a brilliant year.  We said goodbye to Primary 7’s class of 2016.  A brilliant P7 assembly with a few tears shed, lots of shirt signing and when the shirt was full, the jumpers were next, and finally it was time to leave.  Some photos at the end of the day…

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail

Oor Wullie’s Bucket Trail is a major public arts event that will see the streets of Dundee and beyond come to life with a spectacle of colour of 50 giant Oor Wullie sculptures in summer 2016. The project, a collaboration between The ARCHIE Foundation, DC Thomson and Wild in Art will capture the hearts and minds of the public and encourage us all to become ‘tourists in our own City’ and attract visitors from all over. The Oor Wullie sculptures will be beautifully decorated by local and national artists as well as household names from the worlds of film, music, art, animation and fashion. From small local companies to national corporations, a whole host of businesses and individuals will have the unique opportunity to sponsor a sculpture that will then be on show for 10 weeks before taking the sculptures to auction to help raise funds for The ARCHIE Foundation’s Tayside Appeal to create a twin theatre suite for the children’s hospital.  Read more about the trail at Oor Wullie Bucket Trail

Delancey UK Schools Chess Challenge – Megafinal

This tournament took place in Aberdeen, Albyne School, on the 1st of May 2016 and had the top players from Scotland.  There were six rounds and me and my brother won three of them and drew once giving us both 3.5 points out of six.  We needed four out of six to qualify for the British championship, so we just missed out by half a point.  We both won rosettes and my brother got a chess book for coming second in his age group.  Most of the people there were from Albyne school.
I beat the oldest person there who was 17.
