Primary- Secondary Transition
Our annual P7 Roadshow and two day visit were an outstanding success last week. Our Assembly Hall was full to capacity at the roadshow with our largest group of new S1 parents and carers in many years. The Roadshow was the start of the two day visit when all of our P7 pupils had the opportunity to follow their S1 timetable. The pupils were a credit to their Primary Schools and had a fantastic experience. Many thanks to all of our parents and carers and our Primary colleagues for ensuring that the pupils were very well prepared for the visit.

Our School Show, which took place on Friday 5th June was a great experience for all involved. The cast which was made up mainly from our younger year groups performed to a fantastic audience and everyone had a wonderful evening. Our thanks go to Mrs Irene Stewart, PT Music (Job Share) and Mrs Claire Campbell, Teacher of Art & Design, who directed the show.

Our S6 students are now proudly wearing their newly designed school tie. Many of our students are currently involved in interviews for School Captain, House Captain and Prefect positions. We wish them every success in their interviews.
