Junior Awards Ceremony
On Wednesday of this week we held our annual Junior Awards Ceremony where we acknowledged some of the many achievements of our S1-3 pupils. Over 190 awards were presented during the ceremony for a wide range of achievements. Some pupils received academic awards while others received wider achievement awards recognising achievements in other areas such as sporting or musical success. Presentations were also made to some pupils for achieving food hygiene certificates, John Muir Awards for forest learning and a number of trophies were awarded for mainly sporting successes. During the afternoon staff, pupils, parents and guests were also entertained by some of our very talented musicians.
P7/S1 induction days
On Thursday and Friday of this week we welcomed the primary 7 pupils who will be our S1 pupils next session. Around 230 pupils arrived on Thursday morning and following a brief assembly with Mr Gillen, who will be their Year Head next session, and me, they met their Guidance teacher and then followed their timetables for the rest of the two days. Senior pupils acted as guides to assist pupils in finding their way to classes and around the school in general. On Thursday evening Mr Gillen and I held an information evening for P7 parents which was extremely well attended. The P7 pupils seemed to really enjoy their days and our first impressions are that they are a really positive year group.
