Three of our senior pupils, Anna Patterson, Blair Anderson and Molly Kiernan, were interviewed by Heart FM, as part of their coverage of the first anniversary of the Independence Referendum. You can hear their broadcast on Wednesday 16th September, at 18.45. Well done!

A group of pupils from the S4 xl class attended a presentation from Police Scotland entitled ‘No Knives Better Lives’. Those who attended engaged well with the workshop and felt that it was very worthwhile.

S1 pupils will be looking for sponsors for their forthcoming activity on the Mobile Adventure Course. This will form one element of the S1 Welcome event, on 24th September and funds raised will help to subsidise the S1 residential experience in May 2016. Please give generously.

A number of clubs are starting up and pupils should listen and read notices to find out about all the opportunities that exist.

The Parent Council is running a Charity Quiz Night in the school cafeteria, on Thursday 1st October, starting at 7.15 p.m. We hope that there will be a good response from parents, who are welcome to come along either as teams of 4-6 people or we are happy to make up teams on the night. The entry fee is £5 per team and this includes refreshments. There will also be a tombola. During the interval, there will be a very short AGM of the Parent Forum and members will be happy to chat to anyone who might consider joining the Parent Council.
