GREENFAULDS HIGH SCHOOL SHOW 2019
SCHOOLS WILL ROCK YOU!
Greenfaulds HS is incredibly excited to be performing our show, ‘Schools Will Rock You’ on the 19th, 20th and 21st of June. Our pupils have been rehearsing diligently every week to ensure the show will be one of a kind.
‘Taking place in the distant future, Earth has become a world where everyone thinks the same thoughts and wears the same clothes. Worst of all – musical instruments and composers are forbidden and rock music has almost been forgotten! Thankfully, a small group of bohemians are attempting to restore freedom of thought, fashion and live music. Along their journey, they have to be careful not to fall in to the hands of the all-knowing Killer Queen (she’s dynamite with a laser beam!)’
The show will cover Queen’s greatest hits so you know you’re gonna have yourself ‘a real good time!’. Tickets are £5 and can be purchased from any member of the Music Dept. If you want to reserve tickets then please email: email@example.com.
STIRLING UNIVERSITY LANGUAGES OPEN DAY – TUESDAY 11TH JUNE 2019
Some Higher and Advanced Higher French pupils attended Stirling University Languages Open Day this week, where they mixed with other language students from all over Scotland. They experienced what life would be like at Uni and attended mini lectures and tutorials. Pupils were encouraged to participate in French in group sessions and all involved thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had the opportunity to listen to some current students, all of whom had taken part in an Erasmus programme, working or studying whilst living abroad. Hearing such exciting stories has really helped our pupils to see the benefits of language learning and encouraged them to consider a year abroad and a future using languages. This could open so many doors for them no matter what career they choose to pursue!
A number of pupils were successful recently in the final North Lanarkshire badminton league match.
Zack Pursley- Gold Medal in his League Group
Adam Saleem- Silver Medallist in his badminton group
Katie Evans and Rachel Scott both winning Silver medals in their leagues as well.
