Mrs Kerr, Ms Pour and the Global Goals group would like to ‘thank’ everyone who made and/or bought cakes to support the MacMillan Coffee Morning on Friday. The school raised a tremendous £415 for MacMillan Cancer Support.
Prizes for the pupil/staff “Bake off” were also awarded in the Global Goals classroom during lunchtime today. The winners in each category were:
“Best bakers” – Aleanbh Sharkey, Saskia Sharkey, Amy Hargreaves and Becky Greenhill.
“Best effort” – Aislyn Petrie and Eabha Adair-Brown”
“Funniest bakers” – Mrs P. McLay and Ms A. Macconnochie
Well done to everyone involved in these events!
A big ‘thank you’ to Fisher & Donaldson, Aldi and the Co-op who all supported the above events.
Some of our S6 Global Goals group – James Strachan, Kazimir Garcia, Alasdair Tod and Kacper Rosiak – have been re-shaping the lavender plants at the front of the school. The team have now harvested the lavender and are drying the flowers out in the polytunnel ready to be used for some Christmas fayre crafts.
The Captains Team – Sam, Robert, Teetash, Esme, Christian and Megan (S6) – have put together a comprehensive list of all the clubs and sporting activities which go on around the school during the week. There are a wide range of activities for pupils to get involved with – something for everyone!
Extra-curricular activities and clubs, Session 2018-2019
Some of our S1 classes, as part of a Science and Maths collaboration, worked with “Tomorrow’s Engineers” last week. The pupils learned all about energy resources; the importance of renewable energy as the world’s population grows; STEM careers, and how engineers apply STEM learning to solve problems.
In addition, the final challenge – The Electric Car Challenge – saw groups of pupils designing, building, testing and racing their model electric cars.
We were delighted that this project also supported the school’s Global Goals – gender equality and renewable energy – agenda.
Supporting the commitment of the Eco Committee to promote the UN’s sustainable development goals, the DAS Science class have been learning how microbeads enter the food chain this term. The class have produced a giant poster depicting the food web of ocean animals.
Well done to the pupils and staff for creating this fantastic visual display.
