The S5/6 Burns Supper was a great success and thanks are due to Annie Mason and her team, for organising it so well. The haggis was piped in by Luke Shearer and addressed by Rachel Kimmett. Following the meal, there was a range of entertainment – songs, musical items and poetry. Miss Graham proposed the toast to the Immortal Memory of Robert Burns, Blair Anderson and Lewis Cameron proposed an amusing toast Tae the Lassies and Courtney Forsyth and Nicola Wilson gave an entertaining reply. Mr Reilly proposed a vote of thanks at the end of the evening and proceedings were rounded off with Auld Lang Syne and some ceilidh dancing. Well done to all concerned.

The first of our two S3 groups spent an excellent week at the Outward Bound Centre at Loch Eil, accompanied by Magi Hamilton, our Partnership Officer. The young people participated in a wide range of adventurous and challenging activities, along with S3 pupils from other North Lanarkshire schools.

S3 and S4 Modern Studies pupils visited Lowmoss Prison last week, to find out about prison life and facilities. This is part of the coursework that the pupils are undertaking, towards national qualifications.
