Young Musician Competition and Christmas Concert

The Young Musician competition will take place on December 5th this year.  Please speak to Mr Bruce as soon as possible if you are interested in taking part. There are money prizes for the winners in the  Instrumental Category and also the Vocal Category.  Instrumentalists should be around Grade 6 Standard - not necessarily having sat an exam.  Singers should speak to Mr Bruce for more details.

Another date for your diary is our Annual Christmas concert which will be held this year on Monday 12th December at the East Church.

S1 Football

A great effort  this week by our brand new S1 Football team, who played their first every match against Cults Academy. In a fiercely fought match, the whistle blew at full time with a 1-1 score resulting in a penalty shootout. Jenson, the team’s Goal Keeper held his nerve, but unfortunately the boys were cruelly defeated with a 4-3 final penalty score.

Many thanks to Senior pupils Lewis and Ali, who have taken on the task of coaching the boys this year - the only way is up! Click here to view more photos of the game.

Higher and Advanced Higher Spanish pupils enjoyed a trip to Aberdeen’s Belmont Cinema.  We watched “La Novia”, a film about the complex love triangle between three childhood friends.  After watching the film, we went to Café Andaluz for lunch to enjoy some traditional Spanish tapas such as patatas bravas, tortilla and paella. We had a great day out and the film let us experience contemporary Spanish filmography.
