Comic Book Club

Calling all members of the comic book club, past and present. While I am aware that all our members from last year have pulled a Nightwing and gone off to have their own adventures, Comic Book Club has an exciting opportunity ahead and I would like to make this available to all previous and current members of the team. It’s a fantastic opportunity of Hulk-style proportions and we would be mad to pass it up. Please pop along to any weekly meeting to find out more.

In other news, the group have also started Podcasting on all kinds of geeky current events and anyone who would like to have their say on which villain is the greatest of them all or how unfairly female characters are treated in comic books should pop along to B8 every Wednesday lunchtime.

From you friendly neighbourhood Spiderman,

Miss McDonald

Cartoon / animation artists needed!!!

If you would be interested in designing cartoon characters which will be used for animation and video purposes for Primary Language teaching please see Mrs Nicklin as soon as possible in Modern Languages (D11).

I am looking for 4 characters to be drawn and then they will come alive and be animated to make German language videos for Primary School pupils in East Renfrewshire. The design of the characters can be your own ideas!

World Book Day March 2014

To celebrate World Book Day, S1 pupils dressed up as their favourite characters from books and films for a fun afternoon in the theatre taking part in the inter-house Big Book Quiz.

House teams battled it out over six rounds, with Gleneagles eventually winning the glory and those all-important 100 House Points!

Fancy dress winners were also presented with certificates and prizes – with 1st place going to Aimee Logan dressed as a Flapper from “The Great Gatsby”.
