Kilsyth Academy News – 12/12/14

The whole school community was deeply saddened to hear of the untimely death of Mr Stuart Neilson, who was one of our Pupil Support teachers for eleven years. Mr Neilson had been ill for a very long time and he passed away peacefully, in hospital, on Monday 8th December. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr Neilson’s family at this difficult time and Kilsyth Academy will be well represented at his funeral.

Over the past two weeks, the school has been represented by a number of musicians, in the North Lanarkshire Christmas Concerts. Both events were excellent and well supported by parents, friends and staff from across North Lanarkshire. The concerts were the culmination of the work done by the various music groups, over the past 5 – 6 weeks, resulting in very polished performances. Well done!

Our own Christmas Concert took place last week too. It was a fantastic celebration of Christmas with a wide variety of vocal and instrumental performances, singly and in groups. All the performers did a superb job and the packed audience was entertained throughout the evening. Special thanks go to the Expressive Arts faculty for all their hard work on putting the event together and to the many other staff who assisted.

The annual English Premier League trip took place on Saturday 6th December in Manchester. This year there was a visit to Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium for a tour, followed by the Manchester City v Everton game at the Eithad stadium. 44 Kilsyth Academy pupils were accompanied by Mr Urquhart, Mr Parker, Mr Sexton and Mr McAllister. Everyone had a great time and cheered on Manchester City to a 1-0 victory.

Crazy Day is almost upon us once again. It will take place on Monday 22nd December and will also be a non-uniform day. Pupils will participate in three or four activities in the morning and will attend the Crazy Day Show, in the afternoon. In return, everyone is asked to pay £3.00 which will go to the charities selected by the Pupil Council – a local, a national and an international charity. All money should now be paid.

Please note that the school will close on Tuesday 23rd December, at 2.30 p.m. and will re-open on Monday 5th January.
