Cathy enthralled and engaged all S1 during her visit to the school.
Cathy’s work is very popular with teenagers, and she has established a reputation as a writer of gritty, urban stories that tackle emotional, contemporary issues but always work towards a positive solution.
Interestingly, Cathy informed the pupils that she left school at 15, never attended University nor any creative writing course. Her inspiration for writing came from reading books – manna to all English teachers and the librarian.
Great feedback from the pupils on her visit.

Bag 2 School Collection Details
Thinking on having a Spring clear out? The PTA will be looking for all your unwanted clothes, shoes, bags etc. for the ‘Bag 2 School’ scheme on Friday 5th May
Collection bags will be issued by the school, but no special bag is required—you can even use a bin liner and drop it off at the school in the morning.
As well as raising vitally needed funds for the PTA it also helps the environment by helping to divert unwanted textiles away from landfill. A recent DEFRA report has shown that textile collection schemes are helping to reduce the volume of textiles discarded as municipal solid waste. However it is a fact that as a nation we still send 350,000 tonnes of textiles to landfill every year.
S4/5/6 Last day at school
Congratulations to the boys that competed in the Grampian Schools Rugby 7s, winning the S3/4 cup! The boys played really well against some experienced ( and quite big) players.
On the evening of 10th of May 2017 the Expressive Arts Faculty will be hosting an evening of entertainment. Your S2 child will be exhibiting art work that they have completed in school, presenting drama pieces they have worked on in class and performing as part of their music class.
The evening is designed to show the breadth of work covered by our S2 pupils. During the evening the Art Department will be open to browse pupils’ artwork. Your child’s times to perform in drama and music are stated below. Light refreshments will be served throughout the evening in the Central Hall. Pupils are not required to wear school uniform on this occasion. This is not a ticketed event and there are no admission charges.
