Congratulations S2 Pupils
Over the last 12 weeks Ms Mckenzie's S2 pupils have been using their creativity to design and make a range of different products.  Three prizes were given out yesterday – the winners were voted for by their classmates.  The prize for ‘most successful design’ went to Shaun McCue for his rainforest inspired lamp; the prize for ‘best effort’ went to Jade Ward for her collage paintings of people and cats and the prize for ‘most original creation’ went jointly to Kelly Reilly and Rouisse Portugal for their textured tissue paper dress. Congratulations to all!

On Tuesday 11 November 2014 we will stop at 11.00am for 2 minutes to remember those who have fought and died in conflict.  This is particularly significant as it is 100 years since the start of the First World War.  Please make your way quickly to class after break on Tuesday.  A tannoy announcement will signal the start and end of the two minute silence.
