Our last few weeks of term before the Christmas holidays were particularly busy.
A massive thank you to everyone in the community who supported our Christmas market and helped to raise money for school funds and a range of charities including St Andrew’s Hospice.
Once again our music Performing Arts department put on a fantastic show and our parents, carers and invited guests were treated to wonderful performances from our young people and staff. The variety of performances was tremendous with our pipers, singers, bands performing alongside our dancers and drama students. Everyone had a great night.
Students from all year groups had a fantastic night at the annual ceilidh organised by Mrs Anderson and her staff in the PE department. The pupils danced away the entire night and once again it was one of the highlights of the year.
Our annual House quiz took part on the second last day of term organised by Mrs Casement and House Captains, yet again it was a great event.
Food Bank Donations
Thanks to the generosity of our whole school community, during the last week of term we were pleased to support local food banks.
We were delighted to welcome Rev Deirdre Lyons and Rev Kevin de Beer to lead our Christmas Service. The service which was organized by Mrs Lavery in the Humanities Faculty was the perfect way to end the term.
Welcome to 2017
The new term has started with seniors preparing for Prelim Examinations which begin on 23rd January. Full details can be found on the school website. Supported study classes at lunch time and after school have started and mentoring groups are also underway for students in S4-6. Parents and carers can find useful study support information on our website too.
Christmas Card Recycling House Competition
The eco group have organised our annual Christmas Card Recycling House Competition – the blue bins for each house group are at the top of the stairs outside the assembly hall. Pupils are encouraged to bring in all their old Christmas cards and deposit them in the house bin before Tuesday 17th January – the house with the most Christmas cards recycled will win 50 house points. The cards will then be recycled by Marks and Spencers at the Glasgow Fort.
