3 pupils from Grantown Grammar were down at Grangemouth Stadium yesterday to take part in Scottish Disability Sport’s Athletics Championships.  The pupils were representing Highlands after performing exceptionally well in Inverness a few weeks back.  Charlie (S3) smashed his personal best in the softball throw with 17.24m and picked up a silver medal in the process. Iona (S4) won silver in the 100m in a tightly contested race.  Rona (S6) competed in the softball event and threw a massive 16.34m to pick up a silver medal.  All three pupils were very supportive of each other throughout the day and also showed their support for fellow Highland athletes. 

 

Well done Charlie, Iona and Rona – you were all superb!

 

 

Engineering Afternoon

All 60 pupils in the new S3 (old S2), in 10 teams, were engaged in a STEM-filled afternoon on Tuesday 5 June. They had a variety of tasks to solve as a team, which included designing and building a model tower to support a wind turbine, design a flag and solve some other problems. We are indebted to Kim MacGowan of Morrison Construction who took time to spend with the students. She  gave a short talk on the work of a Civil Engineer, helped them with their tasks and scored their work so that we could award 3rd, 2nd and 1st prizes.

Mountain Bike World Cup

What an amazing day at Nevis Range, full of cheers from our 118 pupils for our competing students, Henry and George Kerr, Jamie Edmondson and Daisy Wilson.  Congratulations to them all.  More news, videos and pictures on our Facebook page.

Junior Rangers

Seven S2 pupils had an amazing spell of weather and activity on the Europarc Junior Ranger Week. They hiked up Cairngorm, survived in the forest, which included wild cooking, mountain biked and studied the biodiversity at Insh marshes. Well done to all that took part and thanks to the staff, local rangers and Backcountry Survival. The Junior Rangers made an excellent presentation to parents on Friday evening before being presented with their certificates, caps and shirts. They now have the opportunity to get involved in Ranger volunteering and a chance to travel to a Europarc International camp.
