Student Newsletter – 18 September 2019


The Modern Languages Department is looking for all speakers of any other language apart from English.  If that is you then please come along to Mrs McEvoy’s room any lunchtime this week!


Young Adults Hurricane Book Club

Our school has been asked to be part of a trial of book club in Midlothian. It is open to S2 pupils and above. There are 2 books you would read – I Am Thunder By M Khan and Goodbye Perfect By S Bernard . You then review them. In addition, there would then be 2 after school meetings running 4pm to 5pm on the 5 November and the 21 November. So as well as reading the books there is a bit of extra commitment required because of the after school meetings. If anyone is interested please see Mr Smith in the Library. Thanks.


Our new Drama Club will start next Thursday, 19th September at 12.55 in the Old Gym. No experience necessary. All welcome. See Mr Laydon in Room 44 if you are interested.


Basketball Club for S3-S4 pupils will take place on a Thursday after school in the Games Hall (3:30-4:20) beginning again on Thursday 26 September.
