From understanding comes strength



2012 SQA Talk Assessment Verification

The English department was this year verified in the assessment of Talk at Standard Grade. This involved a morning session whereby the Verifier and Mrs Forman listened to several individual talks and group discussions presented by our S4 pupils. Mrs Forman graded each pupil in front of the verifier who was there to quality assure the department’s assessment standards. The feedback received was very positive confirming that the English Department’s standards are in accordance with the SQA.

Well done to Harry Finch, Ben Strachan, Cameron Reid and Jessica Cardy who recently won a place on the next round of the ESU debating competition held at Aberdeen Grammar on the 3rd November. Fraser Rodger and Jarvis Bull also deserve a mention for an impressive first debate.

Good luck to them all in the forthcoming competition at Aberdeen University
