Calling all budding actors and actresses in S1 and S2.

Pick up your clothes – why?

Mum, why are there 24hours in a day?

Go to your room – why?

Get your work done – why?

Subjects to choose – why?

Come play this game – why?

Times running out – why?

Quick, you have to decide before the buzzer chooses for you!

Come play the game…. its fun…… we promise.

There are so many questions in life….. Some are trivial but others come with what seems like the weight of the world. What if you’re asked questions and your future depended on it? Would you still play along and try and answer?

Why don’t you come along and be involved in a Drama workshop that will explore some of these questions.

Who- S1 and S2 pupils interested in Drama.

When: Thursday 12th December.

Where: C2

Time: 3.40 till 4.40

This free workshop will be led by The Tron Theatre around the theme of choices and could result in you being a part of a production that will be performed at The Tron Theatre in June 2014.

If you are interested then please come and see Miss Devon in Drama asap for more details. There are only 40 places available so book early to avoid disappointment.

Calling all S1, S2 and S3 pupils.

Are you interested in singing, acting and dancing? Are you interested in a back stage role?

If you are then this is your chance to shine!

Miss Evans and Miss Devon are producing a production of ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’.  This is an exciting opportunity to showcase your talent with local primary pupils singing in the chorus.

Sign up on the sheet on the Music or Drama Department Notice boards to register your interest.

Winners of Junior Master Chef 2013

Masterchef Winners 2013

The winners of Junior Master Chef 2013 are Anna Smith and Alice Gray. They produced a beautiful Lemon Soufflé with a Raspberry Coulis which really impressed the judges.

Anna and Alice’s Lemon Soufflé will be produced in the school canteen for Mearns Castle pupils to sample. It will also be added to the Red Onion Restaurants lunch menu and Anna and Alice will receive vouchers to dine there.

All of the twelve finalists produced superb dishes and it was not an easy decision for the judges. All twelve finalists will receive a Golden Dinner ticket for the week that Anna and Alice’s Soufflé is on the menu.
