ROAD RACE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Brilliant run by our S2 pupil who represented the school at SSAA Secondary Road Race Championships at Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline on Wednesday 2 October.  She finished 26th in a field of 114 runners which is a fantastic achievement particularly as she was one of the youngest. She just missed the cut off for the younger shorter race meaning some of the competitors were almost two years older than her.  Should put her in a good position for next year one year older and the experience of running the distance with an admirable placing.

MUSICAL PERFORMANCES FOR ALL YEAR GROUPS – TUESDAY 8 OCTOBER

On Tuesday 8 October we will be hosting musical performances in the Assembly Hall for all year groups across the school.  These will be performed by Natasha Stewart, an upcoming Scottish solo artist who is embarking on a school tour across the UK with a message of Careers, Aspirations and Mental Health.  Performing under the stage name “ThisisNamaste”, Natasha has already toured as a backing singer for Rita Ora, Ella Eyre and is now embarking on her own exciting solo journey.  Furthermore, she will be supporting Little Mix on some of their tour dates later this year as well as releasing her debut album.  Natasha is a University graduate who has had her own struggles with mental health so feels she is in the perfect position to be talking about careers, education & options after school as well as the subject of mental health.

The day will run as follows;

  • P3 – All of S2 are expected to attend the performance in the Hall
  • P4 – All of S3 are expected to attend the performance in the Hall
  • P5 – All of S4/5/6 (those not at College/Volunteering or attending other schools for classes) are expected to attend the performance in the Hall
  • P6 – All of S1 are expected to attend the performance in the Hall

Teachers should register pupils in their classrooms before escorting them down to the hall where they will be for the remainder of the lesson and performance.
