Daily Bulletin – Thursday 3 October

Sponsored Walk 2019: A huge thank you to all the pupils who have handed in money so far – the total is sitting at £2,237. A special thank you to 4 pupils – Cara in S1, Hamish and Lewis in S2 and Jorja in S4 – who have raised an amazing £100 each – very well done! There are still a large number of pupils who have not yet handed in their sponsorship money so please try and do so before the end of this week. Money can be handed in to the School office or put in an envelope with pupil name on front and posted in the Pupil Drop Box beside the Guidance offices. Thank you!

Under 14 Boys Football:  Our next match is today away to Meldrum Academy, departing 2.50pm sharp.  Please collect a consent form and sign your availability on the sign-up sheet outside guidance ASAP, if you have not already done so.          

Musical Theatre will be cancelled on Tuesday 8th October due to a staff meeting. Apologies in advance.

Today is National Poetry Day. Hopefully you will get a chance to think about this year’s theme of truth and create a poem around that idea during the course of your day. If not, feel free to have a go yourself and pop it in to D1-46.


If we can’t trust the news

That we read

Or hear

Or watch

Are we not as well

to switch off devices

and listen to the beat

of our own hearts?

Maybe a voice will come

out of the silence.

Student Council: Could all Student Council members please meet in the Theatre at 1.30pm sharp in full school uniform for a photo.
