The PE Department hosted the first of this years Primary Transition Sports Events for Primary 7 students from our Associated Primary Schools. A total of 208 students took part in a series of Basketball tournaments and the games were all very competitive and of a good standard. We thank all the pupils who came up to take part & we hope they have enjoyed their first taste of sport up here at St Andrew’s High School. Congratulations & well done to all who took part particularly those who were the winners of each of the tournaments. A huge thank you to our Sports Captains & Sports Leaders who were responsible for the smooth running of the event. What an amazing group of students & we are incredibly proud of the standard of leadership skills they show, they are definitely a real asset to our school. And finally a thank you to Miss Barr for all the incredible work she has put in over the last few weeks in coordinating this event and to all staff & Stephen from Active Schools for assisting on the night.
This week S6 students Kelsey Foley & Megan Gamble headed to Auschwitz in Poland to learn about the Holocaust as part of the Lessons from Auschwitz project. A truly life changing experience for both students and we look forward to them coming home and sharing their experiences with the school at future assemblies.
