Kilsyth Academy News – 06/03/15


Rotary Winners

The annual Rotary Technology Competition took place last week, once again hosted by Kilsyth Academy. There was an amazing turnout from schools throughout Lanarkshire and it was a challenging day for the teams who participated. Kilsyth Academy won the Advanced category, for senior pupils, and congratulations go to Kathryn Marshall, David Bauld, Josh Wood and Calum Baird. Also, sincere thanks to the Rotary Club for organising the event.

The fundraising Race Night, in aid of the forthcoming Rwanda trip, was a great success and raised over £1400. A group of senior pupils and two staff will be heading to Rwanda in June.

Higher French pupils attended an immersion day this week, at the Alliance Française. This will be of great assistance to the pupils, as they prepare for their forthcoming examinations and those involved enjoyed the day.

Elections for members of the Scottish Youth Parliament have been taking place across Scotland this week. In Kilsyth Academy, pupils voted for their preferred candidate, on Wednesday. We look forward to hearing the outcome of the event.

Some of our Mark Scott Leadership for Life candidates have organised Heartstart training to enable pupils to teach first aid. The next step will be to put this learning into action!
