The school welcomed P7 pupils from our cluster primary schools to a Transition Day last Wednesday. The pupils had a very busy day creating garments out of recycled material for a fashion show; participating in lots of outdoor activities during a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award session, and finding information around the school in a treasure hunt.
Last week’s event was a fantastic opportunity for the P7 pupils to meet staff, find their way around the building and participate in some great activities.
A big ‘thank you’ to all of the staff who helped make the day such a success.
We look forward to seeing everyone again in June!
Congratulations to all of the S3 and S4 pupils on passing their Qualifying Expedition out on the Lomonds over the weekend. All three groups successfully managed a 24km hike over two days, with a night of camping, in challenging weather conditions.
A big ‘thank you’ to the staff – Miss Doig, Mr McNicol, Ms Bateman & Mrs Kidson – and the group’s Assessor, Donald Jenks.
Well done to everyone!
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award staff and pupils would like to thank the Former Pupils’ Association for donating money to enable the group to purchase sleeping bags and liners.
The much needed equipment will be available for use by pupils undertaking the award at Bronze and Silver level.
A huge ‘well done’ to Finlay MacDonald (S5) and Megan Easson (S5) who were both awarded their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award by Mrs Smart this afternoon.
Megan and Finlay have spent time completing activities for their volunteering, skills and physical sections over the last two years in between exams. A tough expedition up at Loch Ordie, Dunkeld rounded off the work Finlay and Megan have do to enable them to gain their final award.
A great achievement by both pupils.
