DO YOU SHOP IN TESCO? : The hockey club at the school would really appreciate it if whenever you buy something in Tesco you ask for a token to put in the bags for help slots in the shop. We are trying to get as many tokens as possible so that we can buy some much needed hockey equipment. We can collect tokens right up until Jan the 1st. Please help us!!

TEMPEST GROUP PHOTOS : All Sports/Music/Drama/various other groups are all in and displayed in classes/ PE dept.  Please collect an order form from department and either order on line or return to reception asap. S6 Groups are displayed in S6 Common Room with order forms!

S1-3 CINEMA TRIP: Please note there are still some spaces available on the Christmas Cinema Trip to see either Star Wars or Ferdinand. This takes place on Thursday 21.12.17 and is now available for S3's to book.  Letters can be collected from reception and a place can be booked on Parent Pay until Monday 18th December.  Places will be allocated on a first come basis.


WILD FIRE COMPETITION GIG IN GLASGOW : Wild Fire will be playing in Glasgow on the 5th January at Ivory Blacks as part of the competition Metal to the Masses. They are performing in heats within the competition and those there on the night have the chance to vote for the best band on the night. The winner of this gets to play at the Bloodstock open air festival, one of the largest rock and metal festivals in the UK,  in August of next year. Would be great to see support for the pupils of this school who are in this band. For further details and tickets, see Nick Smith S6.
