If you would like to go on this trip on Friday 17th May at 3pm – leaving school at 1pm (check that you don’t have an exam later that day!) then hand in £8 to Mrs Inglis by Tuesday 26th March.  You will also need money for the train fare up to Edinburgh.  This is an amazing show and ideal for those that want to do costume/fashion design at University!

PERCUSSION LESSONS :  - are you in S1 and interested in learning to play the drums or other percussion instruments?  See Mr Jamieson in Music base on Thursday 21st March at break time or Thursday 28th March at lunchtime.  Thanks  

MERITS WEEK:  Your class teacher will be awarding merits this week to pupils who have displayed the school values; effort, respect & ambition this term.

Remember each merit is a point for your house.  Yair came out on top last term & the running totals have Yair in the lead closely followed by Abbotsford, Tweed & Eildon. That could all change this week, watch this space .....
