Congratulations to so many of our pupils, from S1 to S6, whose numerous achievements were recognised at our Celebration of Success Assembly. These included awards for academic excellence, large numbers of merits, representing the school at various events and awards such as Crest and Reading for Gold. The certificates were presented by our House Captains.

 

Once again we had an excellent Christmas Concert, which played to a packed audience for families and friends. Our many talented musicians, vocalists and dancers confidently entertained the audience with a fantastic range of pieces, in large groups, small groups and as individuals. This was, of course, the culmination of many weeks of rehearsals and our thanks go to Mr Russell, Mr Clarke and our Music Instructors for all their work in preparing the young people. Many thanks too, to all staff and pupils who assisted in making the event such a success.

Pupils in S1 and S2 enjoyed a great afternoon Christmas party, playing games and dancing. All the young people joined in the fun and had a great time. Many thanks to the PE department, other staff and senior pupils, who organised the event.

 

Foodbank

Chanelle Gallagher and Mairi McLean, on behalf of the school, delivered around 1150 items to the Kilsyth Foodbank last week, following the week of collections within the school. This was a great total and was gratefully received by the staff at the Foodbank. Well done to Chanelle, who led the whole project and saw it all through to its conclusion.

 

volleyball

The inter-House Volleyball tournament took place last week and, at the end of the competition, Antonine was victorious. Dumbreck was second followed by Balmalloch in third and Colzium in last place. The games were played in the truly competitive and friendly spirit. Well done to all participants!

The school will re-open on Wednesday 6th January, at 8.55 a.m. We hope everyone has a great holiday, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
