Year 8 have been busy planning and designing contraptions to propel a tennis ball as far as possible.

On Friday 20th June the contraptions were built and perfected for the competition. For once we were bathed in sunshine as we measured the distances covered out behind the Sports Hall. Year 8 are to be congratulated for their creativity and ingenuity! The winners were 'The Tankatrons' in 8M comprising Mark McNeill, Peter McConaghie, James McCormick, James Currie and Jensen Daley with a winning throw of 31.7 m. The Rainbows from 8M were in second place with a throw of 19m and third place was awarded to The B Team from 8W.

It all started back in January, when the Junior Drama Club decided that they would like to move on from all the drama games and short scenes which we had been working on, and focus on a much bigger goal: a Junior Drama Club Performance in front of a large audience! It was revealed that the Junior Drama Club would be performing an abridged version of Shakespeare's comedy, Much Ado About Nothing. There were a large number of pupils keen to walk the boards, and, after auditions had taken place, the cast list of 25 pupils was finally revealed!

A sponsored walk took place in the school grounds at Dalriada School on Wednesday 18th June, to raise money to purchase new ICT equipment for the English Department.

The money is rolling in now from our junior pupils and Mrs Hadden, Head of Department, said she was absolutely delighted with how the pupils took to the cause! "All of our pupils worked really hard to collect sponsors and everyone contributed in some way. We are very proud of their efforts on our behalf."

2013/14 was a great year for the World Aid Group and the enthusiastic committee worked very hard to help raise money for many different charities. In the run up to the Christmas holidays we had some great bun sales and coffee mornings and everyone looked very festive in the 'Wear a Christmas Item Day' – there were some very colourful socks, hats and ties!


Our annual World Aid Week took place from 7-11th April 2014 and as usual one of the most competitive events was the Year 13 v Year 14 Bun Sale. This year the clear winner for raising the most money was Year 13! so over the last two years Year 13 have proved they have the business and marketing skills to encourage all the school to buy their buns!
