Book amnesty

Do you have a class textbook lurking in your house?  Do you keep meaning to drop books off to your teachers or the LRC?

The subject faculties and LRC are asking all pupils in S4, S5 and S6 to return books belonging to the school.  Staff are preparing resources for the change of timetable in June and need to have all the books – textbooks, class texts, library books etc. –  ready for use with the new classes.

In particular, the English Faculty are looking for the following titles to be returned as soon as possible – “The great Gatsby”, “A doll’s house”, “The cone gatherers”, “All my sons”, “A view from the bridge”, “I’m not scared”, “Sunset song”, “A streetcar named desire”, “A separate peace” and “Out of the shadows”.

Books can be dropped off to the Main Office, the LRC and/or Pupil Reception.

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.
