Tickets are still available for our annual Christmas Concert, on the evening of Thursday 17th December. The price is £5 for adults and £3 for concessions, and tickets can be purchased from the Music department. This is a great way to celebrate Christmas, with friends and family and to enjoy the entertainment provided by our young people.

Collections for the Kilsyth Foodbank are well underway and we urge everyone to give generously. In particular, the Foodbank would welcome donations of mince pies, Christmas crackers, chocolates, tuna/salmon, shortbread, fruit juice/Shloer, tinned ham, crackers and cheese. Our last day of collecting will be Friday 11th December.

The S1/S2 Christmas Party will take place on the afternoon of Monday 14th December. Pupils have been issued with information about this.

Our three Kilsyth Academy Christmas cards have now been sent to the printers. Congratulations to Holly Shaw, Jake Muir and Olivia Elliott (all S2), who designed the cards.



The inter-House football competition took place last week. It was played in good spirits, with some exceptional goals being scored. Antonine House won the overall event, with Dumbreck House coming second, Balmalloch third and Colzium fourth. Well done to all participants and to the PE Department for organising the event.

We also had inter-House Table Tennis tournaments for boys and girls. In the boys’ event, Mike Chebe took 1st place for Colzium, Maciej Jelito was in 2nd place for Balmalloch, Scott Leslie was third for Antonine and Lewis Cameron was fourth, for Dumbreck. In the girls’ competition, Alex Burke took 1st place for Dumbreck, Emily Muir was second for Antonine, Nicola Wilson took 3rd place for Colzium and Connie McFarlane was fourth for Balmalloch. Well done to all!

Crazy Day will take place on Monday 21st December and, by now, pupils should be paying their £3.00 donation to participate. Lots of morning activities are planned and staff and 6th year have been rehearsing furiously for the afternoon show. All proceeds will go to the three charities selected by the Pupil Council – Strathcarron Hospice, SAMH and Mary’s Meals. Let’s do them proud!
