Purple Friday

The Equalities Group would like to thank all of the staff who participated in marking LGBT Scotland’s “Purple Friday”.  Staff were encouraged to show their support for equality and inclusion for LGBT members of the school community and beyond by wearing purple.

In addition, the Equalities Group and LRC have produced an LGBT book list to mark “Purple Friday”: see link below.

“All my sons” Dundee Rep visit

A very happy coachload of 50 S3-S6 Drama and English pupils returned from the theatre this week night buzzing about the great production of the classic Arthur Miller play “All my sons”.

It’s a play with huge themes and even though there were some confused faces at times, everyone agreed that the performances were extremely powerful, the design was original and effective and the climax was so powerful – the whole audience were in total silence until the applause erupted.

The post war atmosphere was cleverly created through neutral colours which looked like a sepia photograph, the threat of a prison sentence was suggested through fencing and bare trees and there was even a real rainstorm!

It was beautifully acted and directed and so all the pupils could see how a text can really come to life on stage.  I am sure there are now some new fans of Arthur Miller and Dundee Rep Company!

Visit to Bspoke Joinery

Our National 5 Practical Woodwork class enjoyed a visit to local business, Bspoke Joinery Ltd.  The pupils were able to look around the workshops; find out a bit more about careers in the industry, and have their questions about woodworking answered by the staff.

Thank you to everyone at Bspoke Joinery for taking the time to show our pupils around the workshops.

Purple Friday

The Equalities Group are encouraging staff, where they can, to show support for equality and inclusion of LGBT within the school by joining in with “Purple Friday”.  Staff have been encouraged to wear something purple to support the event.

“The day, first celebrated in Canada in 2010, is named after the purple stripe on the LGBT rainbow flag.  According to Gilbert Baker, creator of the flag, the purple represents ‘spirit'” [LGBT Youth website].

Look out for photographs from Friday’s event.

The Equalities Group meets every Tuesday lunchtime in 311 (Home Economics).
