Congratulations to all those who achieved 100% attendance this term.  Texts have gone home to your folks letting them know.

Please remember that we are all working to improve attendance.  You should by now know your own attendance percentage.  From January you will be working to increase your percentage and hopefully move towards the ‘Green Zone’ (95% and above).

If you don’t know your own percentage yet please see your group tutor.

Happy holiday and we look forward to seeing ALL OF YOU back on Tuesday 6th January.

The next FF will focus on ONE of the 3Rs: RESPECT  

Positive relationships between pupils and staff is a crucial feature of an excellent school and respect for ourselves and each other is central to this.

Meaning: to have due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others.

Similar words: consideration, thoughtfulness, politeness.

Our Task: to show respect to others.

Keep collecting those tickets!

Edinburgh City Bike Schools

Inter-Schools Mountain Bike Challenge, Spring 2015
Several high schools are hoping to hold an informal series of 4BIKE MTB races sometime in spring 2015 to promote grass roots participation in the sport.

4BIKE racing is a format that has been used very successfully at schools and Sportfests around the City. As only four riders compete at any one time only a small pool of bikes is required and these, plus helmets, will be provided by the race organisers. Riders can, of course, bring their own equipment if they wish to do so.

Competitors will race four times over a short course of grass and tarmac that will be different at each venue and as each heat only lasts around five minutes any boy or girl from S1 to S6 with reasonable fitness and who is a confident cyclist (can use gears!) should be able to enjoy the challenge.

We would love to invite all Edinburgh Schools to come and join us but logistically this is just not possible. However, if you like what you see here and want to replicate it in your own area of Edinburgh we would be thrilled to give you all the help you need to set up your own MTB 4BIKE challenge.
If we can get more schools to take part in local events like the one described above we could all meet up nearer Easter to hold an Edinburgh City Bike Schools 4BIKE championship.

If interested in getting involved, please see Mr Patterson.
