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.

Full list extra-curricular activities

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!

Tomorrow’s engineers

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.
