S1 visit to Glasgow Science Centre

Our S1 pupils visited the Glasgow Science Centre as part of the S1 Science course. Pupils had to examine the experiments and exhibits available on all three floors and write a report on the nature of the experiments and decide which ones they liked and why.

School Uniform Evening – Monday, 10th June 2013

As you are aware at Mearns Castle we are determined to achieve excellence in every dimension of the life and work of our school.  This ambition includes aspiring to the highest possible standard of school uniform.

You will hopefully be aware that from the start of this session we have made substantial improvements to the standard of our school uniform.  We have maintained these improved standards throughout the session and the improvement has really enhanced the high quality ethos of our school.  It is our intention that these high standards are maintained henceforth.

Mans World will be hosting a Uniform Evening in the School Open Area on Monday, 10th June, from 6.00 – 9.00 pm.  Click here to read the letter sent home about the evening.  Click here to read the updated School Uniform policy.

Bleep Test Challenge Club

After a better attendance last week with 14 runners, we were back down to only 5 this week.  I am hoping that most of you just forgot and that I will see you again next time!  I am still looking to achieve the heights of our first week with 36 runners!  Come on back this Wednesday lunchtime.

Last week we welcomed a new staff member to the club, Mr Hamilton (Maths).  Congratulations to him on his impressive first run of 11.5.

Well done to everyone for taking part again these last two weeks.  Particular congratulations to the following pupils for improving their best ever scores last week:

Oliver Grieve (S1) went from 10.3 to 10.5

James Howard (S2) went from 7.7 to 8.1

Laurence Ng (S2) went from 6.7 to 7.5

Chris Griffiths (S3) went from 8.11 to 9.4

Emma Park (S3) went from 6.2 to 6.4

Further congratulations to Oliver Grieve (S1), Lewis Bond (S2) and Greig MacKay (S2) who have made all 4 weeks of the club and are leading the ‘Most Consistent Attendance’ leaderboard.  I look forward to seeing more pupils and staff at club on Wednesday 22nd May at
