Ramadan

Ramadan began on Sunday 5th May, with the festival of Eid-al-Fitr being celebrated on or around Tuesday 4th June.

Throughout Ramadan, Muslims spend 30 days observing fast during daylight hours, as a means of celebrating and reflecting on their faith.  To support our pupils, rooms have been made available during lunch to provide a space for prayer and rest.  Boys are welcome to use Maths room 1 and girls can use Maths room 2. These rooms were chosen as they face the direction of Mecca.

Pupils should still bring in their PE kit and change for PE, however we understand strenuous activities should be avoided.  Pupils will have the opportunity to take part in  PE however their participation will be led by how much the pupils feels they can manage.

HSBC and British Council Mandarin Speaking Competition 2019 Winner’s Trip to China

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My Winner’s Trip to China as part of the HSBC and British Council Mandarin Speaking Competition 2019 was an amazing experience that I will remember for a very long time. The trip consisted of 2 parts – sightseeing the main tourist attractions in China and staying at the Affiliated High School of Beijing University.
During the trip, I managed to get to know the history of China, the culture that surrounds it, and also practise my knowledge of Mandarin. I found it a fantastic learning experience.
I was absolutely delighted with how the trip went and I definitely made many friends there. I enjoyed the great food, the atmosphere, and the cultural difference here from that in Scotland. I spent an amazing time there! I’m certain that I will visit this country again in the summer.

Weekly Prayers

Tuesday 23 April 2019.
Easter is the celebration and remembrance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion. On Easter Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the renewal, hope and new life Jesus brings to the world.
Our Saviour has risen! The resurrection of Jesus reminds us that God makes all things new. He has given us the same resurrection power to live free from sin and death and to have a life fully alive!

Lord God,
You loved this world so much,
That you gave your one and only Son,
That we might be called your children too.
Lord, help us to live in the gladness and grace
Of Easter Sunday, everyday.
Let us have hearts of thankfulness
For your sacrifice.
Let us have eyes that look upon
Your grace and rejoice in our salvation.
Help us to walk in that mighty grace
And tell your good news to the world.
All for your glory do we pray, Lord,
Amen. Continue reading Weekly Prayers

Weekly Prayers

Monday 15th April 2019.

Lord God,

Six days before his death, your son sat with Lazarus,
Whom he had raised from the dead,
And ate dinner with his friends.
Once again, your gospel tells us, Martha served,
And Mary knelt at Jesus’ feet
To anoint them with costly perfume.
The disciple who was about to betray him
Said that it was a waste.
He didn’t care about the poor, really –
He just wanted to fill his own pockets
And make Mary feel ashamed.
Lord God,
Often we cannot discern what is best:
When to pour out costly perfume for your sake,
Even if the world thinks it a waste.
When to be busy serving,
Or when to rest at your Son’s feet and learn.
Give us ears to hear you and eyes to see.
For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ.

Amen.

Our Father……..
