Sportathon 2018

A massive well done to everyone who took part and donated to this year’s Sportathon event. We started with the football at 6am and finished at 12:20pm with the 1 mile run. We managed to raise a total of £2004. The money raised will be going towards Teenage Cancer Trust and Sport Relief. The winner of best dressed went to Kirsty Waters in 607. Well done to all involved!


Act of Kindness

Could the two students who helped a little boy last Friday after school, please speak to Mr Pye, as he who would like to thank them for being so kind!


Autism Awareness Week

As part of World Autism Awareness Week (26th March – 2nd April), there will be S1-3 assemblies next week. The assemblies will be giving an overview on autism and how it affects people’s daily lives.

As part of Autism Awareness week, there will be a dress down day on Thursday 29th, where pupils will be asked to wear something Blue and donate £1. Money will be used to purchase Autism friendly resources for the school.
