Scottish Schools Cross Country Championships: The Scottish Schools Cross Country Championships take place at Hopetoun House Estate on Tuesday 3rd March. Anyone keen to participate should speak to Mr May before Friday 7th February.

To all S1 Pupils: Last week 35 S2 pupils had a fantastic time in Italy on the school ski trip, enjoying loads of snow, blue skies and lots of laughter.

If you have not signed up for the ski trip in January 2021 then this is your final chance. There are 5 places still available.

Speak to Mr Cheyne in G11 if you are interested.

Zoolab is coming to Balerno on Monday 3rd February:

Periods 1 – 3:

1B2 Per 1, 1B1 Per 2, 1C1 Per 3

Please go to your classes 1st and then go to F10.

Take all of your stuff with you and pile it neatly at the back of F10, where you will be released from at the end of the period.

Anyone who does not wish to take part in the Zoolab experience (or has not completed the required paperwork) please then go to the LRC.

Mrs Timoney will welcome you and ensure you get on with an alternative ICT research task that I have set (a Jungleicious poster – woohoo !)

Periods 4 & 5:

1C2 Per 4, 1M2 Per 5

Come out of your practical set classes after registration and make your way to F10.

Any non-participants will simply stay in their classes as normal.

1M1 have had to be split 5 ways in order to get the Zoolab experience. You have been made aware of who’s going during which period.

Thanks for your attention. Any questions? Don’t hesitate to ask.
