Tinto Hill Climb

The annual Tinto Hill Climb in aid of the St Andrew’s Hospice took place today with a large number of our S1 students taking part.  Thankfully we had good weather for the hill climb and all students and staff safely navigated their way up and down.  Students are encouraged to collect their sponsor money as soon as they can and bring it into school.  All money goes to the Hospice which is one of the main charities that we support throughout the year.  Well done everyone.

STEM

The STEM IDL project continues with the Design & Applied Technology faculty enhancing our S2 students experience of renewable energy and gear simulations.

In addition 4 of our S1 students attended the Salters Festival at the University of Glasgow School of Chemistry.  The festival provided the opportunity for our enthusiastic young students to spend the day in the School of Chemistry and to take part in practical fun chemistry activities.   A great day and experience for them.

Social Subjects

It has been a busy time as always up in the Social Subjects department.  S3 Modern Studies students recently enjoyed a day out at the Scottish Parliament where they got to meet a number of MSP’s and the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.  S2 students have begun working on the STEM IDL project where they have been looking at forms of renewable energy as part of the Developing the Young programme.  In Geography S1 Kelso students have been working on their Landmark models with some very impressive models being made by them.

Sports Day

We held our annual Sports Day on Wednesday for students in S1, S2 and S3.  Students competed in a variety of traditional athletic running, jumping & throwing events alongside some novelty races & competitions.  The day was a resounding success and well done to all those students who competed in one of the biggest Sports Days in Scotland.   Thank you to staff from across the school who helped with the organising and running of the day.  The support they give the PE department is incredible and truly makes this a successful whole school event.

This was the first year running Sports Day in our new House system and added a new dimension to an already successful competition.  Students will receive their medals at the upcoming Sports Day prize giving (date TBC) with the House competition winners & Sports Champions being announced then as well.

Last day for S6 students

Friday the 28th April saw the last official school day for our S6 students at St Andrew’s High School.  The students spent the first part of the morning getting all their shirts signed by their class mates and staff whilst having their own unofficial warm up party in the common room before the official end of day Ceilidh during periods 5 and 6.  Father James celebrated the Leavers Mass during periods 3 and 4 with the S6 students and their families.  It was an incredible turn out  and we thank them for taking the time to come and celebrate together with our students.

Our Head Boy & Girl Anthony Campbell and Cara Silvestro delivered a thank you speech on behalf of the year group before Mr McKenna delivered his own message of thanks and good luck. It was then over to Ms Morrison, Year Head for S6, to deliver her own emotional speech about their journey from S1 to S6 and everyone was touched by the heart felt sentiments of Ms Morrison’s “Love Actually” themed speech.   We were then treated to a flashmob dance courtesy of our Pupil Support Team to I’m On My Way by The Proclaimers, before the final video montage of photos and memories from throughout the years together.

This S6 year group certainly were an excellent year group, we are all really proud of how they have developed into fine young adults and we wish them every success in their examinations and whatever each goes on to do after leaving St Andrew’s High School.  Our doors will always be open to them.
