Congratulations to S6 pupils Henry Hyndman and Kirsten Keay who have been accepted into the Tianjin Scholarship, along with 20 other students in Scotland. It is very rare for two people from the same local authority to get into this program.
This program allows them to study for 10 months at the Tianjin Foreign Studies University, Tianjin, China.
Jack Irvine, the first pupil from Shetland to get into this program, is a current scholar in Tianjin. Read his blog.
Congratulations to our team of Duncan Burgess, Chloe Hitchin, Thomas Clarke & Joe Sinclair who came 4th out of 14 teams at the Aberdeen regional event of the UK Senior Maths Team Challenge.
On November 5th, S3,4 and 5 students at AHS had the opportunity to meet multi-award winning photographer and wildlife cameraman, Doug Allen. He led fascinating assemblies in which he shared the stories behind some of his most iconic footage as well as his thoughts on climate change and environmental impact issues.
Doug also led a photography workshop and judged a photography competition.
The There But Not There Soldier was in the school on Wednesday 7th November.
On Friday, after the two-minute silence, the names from the school memorial roll of honour were read out and then senior pupils laid a wreath at the school cairn.
