It’s the final newsletter of 2016. The last year has seen many changes and there have been innumerable LaurenAndersonsuccesses. Not least, pupils from Johnstone High being chosen to have their work exhibited in the Paisley Museum and Art Exhibition.  Special congratulations go to Lauren Anderson in S3 who came first in the Paisley Art Institute competition. And these are not the only successes. Just missing  the deadline for the newsletter, Megan Cook S4, Beth McColl S5 and Lisa Thomson S6 reached the finals in Future Textile’s Dress in a Day Challenge at Dumfries House.  The competition was judged by the Great British Sewing Bee judge Patrick Grant, with prizes given by Duke & Duchess of Rothesay. Mrs Carlin, our teacher, excelled herself and led the way by winning the Teacher Challenge. So pats on the back all round, then!

‘Destiny’ the lion cub has now gone to “The Pride of Paisley” project with a full-on makeover from the Johnstone High School Art Department. The lion project will form part of the Summer Fun Campaign, the highlight of which will be 25 life-size lion sculptures, painted by local artists and schools.




The lions will be located around Paisley’s heritage trail for 10 weeks during summer. At the end of the event the schools can have their mini lions returned and the artists’ life size lions will be auctioned off where all monies raised will go to the Accord Hospice and St Vincent Hospice.




Paisley Museum’s very own “Buddy the Lion” has been the inspiration for this project. There will be, at some point, a trail map published where all the lions and mini lions can be found.  A big well done to 2p10 and the designer/painters: Sophie Pearce, Megan McCrory, Lydia McReavy, Millie Spence, Sam London, Aiden McHendry and Ruairi McKiernan.

The Tanzania World Challenge team have organised a collection with Bag 2 School as part of their fund raising for their trip to Tanzania next summer.

Bag 2 School will be coming to the school to make a collection this coming Tuesday 14 June.


Bag 2 SchoolIf you have any old clothes, shoes, hats, bags, handbags etc.  cluttering up your wardrobes at home then why not bag them up in any old bin bag and get them into the school on Monday or Tuesday for collection?

A list of items that can be submitted can be found at the following web page – Bag 2 School.

Bags can be deposited by pupil or parent at the school reception and we’ll make sure that they make their way down to the Computing and Business Education Department for uplift.

Those old kipper ties are not coming back into fashion any time soon – let them be gone!
