Well done to S4 pupils for their hard work in preparing for their recent. These are now finished and preparation are now underway to prepare for the S5/6 prelims beginning on Monday 21st January. The S5/6 Prelim timetable can be found by following the link: https://olhs.wordpress.com/2018/12/17/2019_prelims/
There have been many events over the last few weeks that staff and pupils have been preparing for and delivering. We had a number of pupils involved in the North Lanarkshire Schools’ Christmas Concert. I managed along on the Tuesday evening and it was a fantastic event showcasing the great talent in the authority.
We then has our school concert organised by the Performing Arts department which really showed off not only the talent in the school, but also the large numbers of pupils involved in the department. We even had a staff choir who joined in!
Mrs Zambonini and her Personal Development took to do with most of the organisation of the Senior Citizens’ Lunch. It was great to welcome about 80 members of our wider community in to the school for a bit of lunch and some Christmas entertainment as well as a visit from Santa.
The majority of our S1 pupils had an enjoyable visit to the Pantomime Cinderella in Glasgow last week. Oh no they didn’t!! Yes…they did actually!!
We had our annual Inter House quiz recently and in a repeat of last year’s result, Sinclair House came out on top. Well done to all!
As part of the preparations for Christmas Fr McPhail organised for a number of priests to come to the school and Confession was made available to all of our S1 and S2 pupils. Many thanks to Fr McPahil and the local priests who came along to help out.
With just under a week left we still have other events and activities happening : S1-3 and S4-6 Ceilidhs, pupils visiting Park Springs Care Home, Christmas Parcels collection for homeless shelters in our local community and our Christmas Service on Friday. So, plenty to keep us all busy.
I would just like to finish by wishing you all a Happy and Holy Christmas when it comes and a Happy New Year. Enjoy some quality time with friends and family.
