As S1/2 Boys head off to Orkney for Rugby experiences, and S1/2 Mixed Tennis players prepare to do battle with Gordonstoun School this coming week, the pitches are teeming with pupils warming up energetically for the School Sports on 2nd and 3rd June. For some events there may be heats, but this annual celebration of health and fitness
The Eden Court Drama Group, led by Lorraine Hemmings, but this week in the care of
Naomi Shoba, are busily scripting scenes and choreographing dance routines for their Showcase event on June 30th.

Highland Youth Voice
Following Youth Voice elections, Young Quality Scot Awards etc., some of our young people are now looking forward to the big annual Highland Youth Voice Conference, at Sabhal Mor Ostaig in Skye (Thursday 9th – Saturday 11th June). Travelling west through rain and midgies are: Bethany Goodwin, Erin Semple and Gregor Stuart, with young activists Ellena Leslie and Finlay Allmond on the reserve list.
We have been collecting Tesco vouchers again this year. Thanks to all who have responded well – the school benefits substantially from this scheme. Now that all vouchers have been issued, we have to begin the mammoth task of counting the vouchers – so if there are any more vouchers sitting in handbags, shopping bags, glove compartments etc., we would be delighted to receive them. Vouchers can be handed into reception. Thank you.
All departments in the school will gratefully receive textbooks and other booklets etc. which senior pupils have been using up to the current exams. The same, of course, applies to all Library books borrowed this session. Thank you.
