A number of pupils in Technologies were fortunate enough to spend the day at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust at the end of term.  The pupils had the opportunity to get some valuable practical experience of traditional building skills.

‘Thank you’ again to the staff at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust for sharing their knowledge and skills with our young people.

 

Babock Festival of Engineering success

As part of the Babcock Festival of Engineering, pupils in S1-S3 who attended the event were given the opportunity to submit a design to the National RN-UKNEST Naval Engineering Competition.

Congratulation goes to Ythan Evans (S3) who is one of only three winners for his age group and the only winner from a Scottish school across all three age groups.  His design shows clear thinking and understanding to provide a solution to the challenge of rescuing 1000 people from the sea.

Well done Ythan!
