Well done to our S1 Boys, S1 Girls and Senior Boys Volleyball teams.  Last week our S1 teams both qualified for the Scottish Cup Semi Finals by beating Stewarton Academy and Grange Academy respectively.  Both teams have drawn Stonelaw High School in the semis which will be a very competitive match.

Additionally, our senior boys team have made it through to the Scottish Cup Final.  This is a major achievement and will be playing at Coatbridge High School on Thursday 14th March.  Our opponents will either be Mearns Academy from Aberdeen or Belmont Academy from Ayr.

Well done everyone involved.
