There may be some small speaking roles still available. Please let me know if you are interested in these.

For anyone who has completed any Duke of Edinburgh programme in the last 3 years:
We are looking for photographs of your training or expeditions to include in this year’s Award ceremony at the end of term. Please put photos on a memory stick and include the names of anyone in the photograph. Please go along to Miss Shepherd anytime and she will make a copy for the presentation. Thank you very much.
Calling all Golfers: Aberdeenshire are looking to send a team of golfers to the Scottish Schools Golf Championship at Murrayhall. If you have a handicap of 6 or less and wish to be considered please give your name to Mr Cruickshank ASAP.
Parkour Trip: A big thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s Parkour Trip and apologies to those who missed out on a place! Could I please ask all those who took part to go and see Mr McKinnie as soon as possible to complete a survey on the trip. It would be great to run this trip again, but we require your feedback to let us know if you enjoyed it!
