Pupils going to Romania with Blythswood Care this summer have organised a fund raising ceilidh – 7pm Thursday 5 February at Kingsmills Hotel. Tickets are available from Jenna Mackay, Holly Martin, Neve Mackenzie, Megan Anderson, Lois Hamilton, Harry Mackenzie, Ms Topping & Mr MacDonald. All welcome.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for pupils in S2 to take part in the exchange programme this year between the IRA and Collège Éric Tabarly in Brittany. French pupils arrive on Tuesday 5th May and will stay with partners for a week, visiting attractions and going to our school. Our pupils will return, by air, in September, from the 15th to the 22nd. This is a terrific chance to extend social and interpersonal skills and also use language in a very real context. It is also a lot of fun! If you are interested, please contact Mr McArthur as soon as possible, or download a form and send it in. The total cost will not exceed £350, including all costs, and we would require a £50 deposit to secure your child’s place. We are particularly keen to hear from boys, to keep numbers balanced.
