A fantastic first visit by pupils and staff from Grantown Grammar School to the The Climbing Academy in Glasgow at the weekend. Our 9 pupils were complimented on their behaviour, attitude and ability. If you are looking for our youngest pupil in the photo she is already at the top! Thanks to Mr Carrott, Miss Birse, Miss Carmichael and her partner Chris for all making this a worthwhile journey.

3 GGS pupils and their Archery Mentor – Iain Paterson [Wild Highland Archery] enjoyed a recent afternoon out, to visit the Archer’s Stone in Carrbridge. Accompanied by Mr. Shearon and trusted puppy, Winston, the pupils; Shannon [S4] Rona [S6] and Duncan [S4] munched a lovely packed lunch at the stone, while Iain brought them up to speed with the life of another, Iain; Ian Beag McAndra, who prevented many cattle raiders entering Strathspey in the 17th Century. It was a fitting end to their “Archery” block at school.
This year’s S2 Song Competition was a great success. Sixteen songs, created and performed on stage, were enjoyed by a large audience, including many parents who came to support their son or daughter. The S3 Music students judged the competition and the winning song was Costa by The Coffee Beans. It was such a fun event. Congratulations to all the S2 pupils who took part. Photos to follow on Facebook.
We will be holding a ‘dress-down’ day tomorrow (Friday 17 November) in aid of Children in Need. The theme for the day is ‘Bright Colours – no Black’ and if pupils choose to dress down, they will be asked to donate £1 to Children in Need. Brightly coloured spots are especially encouraged. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
All pupils travelling to The Climbing Academy on Saturday must attend bouldering at lunchtime tomorrow (Wednesday) to collect important information.
