An amazing time was had by all in New York last week…
The S3 Classical Greek set enjoyed a buffet of Greek food, including olives and stuffed vine leaves while watching a National Theatre Live On Demand theatre performance of the Greek tragedy Antigone, featuring the 9th and 13th Doctors, Christopher Eccleston and Jodie Whittaker.
The Bronze D of E groups made presentations of their expeditions one lunchtime this week. Well done everyone! All the groups did a brilliant job, but with Halloween on the way, we think that Group 5 deserve a special mention for their video (which can be see on our Facebook page). Expeditions are done and the group are all on the final stages to gain their Bronze D of E Award.
School photos will be taken on Thursday 26 October. Please see the letter below that was issued to pupils. Returns are due for this Friday, 6 October.
The Nat5 Hospitality class invited members of staff to attend a coffee morning they hosted last Friday in aid of McMillan Cancer Support. The sum of £112 was raised for this very good cause. Well done!
Contrary to the planned activities, 2C and 2D will be cycling and walking tomorrow (Thursday 5 October) – half a day on each activity. You will be provided with school bikes and helmets. The first group will cycle out to Nethy and the second group will cycle back. The second group will walk out and the first group will walk back. Normal outdoor casual wear, such as trainers, leggings/tracksuit bottoms, 2 layers on top and a jacket. You will need to take a rucksac with a packed lunch and a bottled drink. This can be topped up with tap water at Nethy.
Huge congratulations to Scott Simon (husband of our Learning Support Teacher, Mrs Simon), who competed in the Invictus Games in Toronto last week. Scott represented Great Britain in power-lifting, indoor rowing and shot putt. Scott, who leads the British Canoeing Olympic Development Programme, won a bronze medal in the Men’s Heavyweight Final, managing to lift 175 kg. The photos below show him completing, being awarded his medal and also a very cheery Mrs Simon who managed to get a photo with Prince Harry.
1RY enjoyed the sunshine on their History field trip yesterday to Inverallan Church. The pupils had to emulate a reformation fire and brimstone minister speaking from the pulpit as part of their journey into the social history of churches. One of our pupils was able to conduct the congregation as we sang happy birthday to him!
