Celebrating Wider Achievement – Edinburgh Book Festival

Some of our S2 pupils had the opportunity to interview author Matt Dickinson at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in August. They did really well. So well in fact the Matt Dickincon has offered to come to our school on Tuesday 5th November to give two explosive workshops to more of our young people. A creative wrinting workshop to help some of our older pupils with their imaginative wrinting skills and another talk to our first year pupils about his experiences climbing Mount Everest and his “Mortal Chaos” series.

Listen to the interview here.

Hint of Pink

Today Lourdes Secondary School turned pink in support of breast cancer research. Pupils were invited to wear something pink and volunteers from the Higher Leadership class teamed up with members of staff to raise awareness.

Amongst the festivities, there was a Teacher’s Blind Date, nail bar, bake sale and pink lemonade stall! 

Overall, the day was a huge success and a great time was had by all.  Thanks to the tremendous effort and hard work of staff and pupils, a total of £1,137.11 was raised.
