Please find below today’s daily bulletin.  Thank you.

A few local residents have contacted the school about litter that is being dropped in our local area and about young people not moving away to socially distance from members of the public. The litter is also attracting seagulls. Please be mindful that we are part of a community and we need to work together to ensure that our area in and out of school are kept clean and safe.

Also a reminder that facial coverings should be worn on transport and in and around the corridors and communal areas of the school.

InYourHouse – Challenge 2
Well done to all those who took part in the Emoji quiz last week! We had a really good participation rate but we are sure you can do better this week. If you are S1 or just haven’t joined your house class please add yourself to your class using the codes below.
Challenge 2 is an Anagram challenge. Complete the quiz using the link on Google Classroom. As this is an Anagram challenge you must use every letter and watch your spelling! Good Luck Team Interhouse

CALLING ALL S6 – We are looking to create a group of S6 pupils to help with Interhouse/InYourHouse activities both online and physically (football/hockey/netball etc). You would be involved in promotion/creation of activities/organisation of events. You would need to be willing to work with the staff group which is already established and be willing to attend monthly meetings potentially at lunchtime. This would be really good for your CV and to add to your personal statement. If you are going into teaching/events management or something similar this is the job for you! If you are interested in this or just want to find out more, please come and give your name to Miss Hardie in 2.11.
Thank you Team Interhouse
