Congratulations to all pupils in S1 and S2 who took part in the National Poetry Day competition. Pupils were asked to write poems on the theme of Games.  In S1, first place went to Emma Marcuson, second to Nikki Barnett and third to Calum Russell.

S2 pupils Bethany Nesbitt, Perle Picard and Luke Butterfield came first, second and third respectively.  All the winners will receive points for their houses and book tokens.  Alice Carter, Olivia Bell and Ruairidh Morrison also receive house points for their excellent entries.  Very well done indeed!  The winning poems will be displayed in the English department and on the school website.
