Technologies IDL
Pupils in S3 came off timetable to carry out their technologies IDL project. IDL is a planned approach to learning, which uses links across different subjects or disciplines to enhance learning. Pupils visited Business Studies, Computing Science, Home Economics and Technical. Each department created a fun filled lesson full of practical and engaging, team building tasks. Lessons took the form of Programming using Microbits in Computing Science, baking shortbread in Home Economics, Marketing and Costing in Business Studies and design and production of a basket to hold the shortbread in Technical. Initial feedback suggests pupils have enjoyed their experience, gaining new skills and knowledge.

Jupiter Art land Sculpture Park
On 13th October; Higher ART & DESIGN students had a great opportunity to visit Jupiter Art land Sculpture Park, near Edinburgh. This free workshop allowed students to see sculptures in their natural setting. Land artist; Charles Jenks grass forms were unusual and reminded students of telly tubby land!!! In contrast the surreal bronze sculptures of five lost looking Victorian girls; by artist ; Laura Ford spooked our students!!! After lunch; students were inspired to make their own mini sculpture using clay…the only problem was transporting them back home!!! Well done to all involved!


We are very pleased our senior pupils have been invited to apply to the Titan Engineering Trust again this year. This trust offers funding to a successful pupil who goes on to study an Engineering discipline at either Glasgow or Strathclyde university. Some S6 pupils have already given me a note of interest and I would encourage any more pupils applying to these courses to speak with me. For more information about the trust please visit their website

Sicily 2016
Our Sicily trip earlier this month has been voted 'trip of a lifetime' by pupils! We had a full day exploring the very active Mount Etna volcano after riding in the cable We paddled and swam in the beautiful Alcantara Gorge and had a chance to try the different (and very tasty) nut butters that are a speciality on the island. Our toughest day was the boat trip and hike to the crater rim on Vulcano island in blistering temperatures. The view over the other Aeolian Islands was stunning but the volcanic eggy smell was disgusting! Our hard work was rewarded with a chillout day at the fantastic Etnaland water park. More pictures here.


Paris 2017
30 girls attended a team building session at CHS on Sunday 8 October. The girls enjoyed a delicious lunch from McMonagles Fish boat, followed by team building activities and finishing off with a treasure hunt around the school.

National Poetry Day
To celebrate National Poetry Day the school library set up a ‘make your own poem’ board where pupils could create and change their own poems as often as they liked throughout the day. Pupils who visited the library on Thursday were encouraged to write a short poem on a post-it note which S6 library assistants then made into a ‘Message in a bottle’ display for the library’s poetry books. In conjunction with the English department the library also set up poetry postcard classes where S1 pupils wrote messages to S6 pupils, and S5 pupils wrote their messages to S2 pupils. The library also organised a postcard exchange for staff members who were given the opportunity to send a positive message to any other member of staff during National Poetry Day itself.

S2 Orienteering at Mugdock Country Park
What started as a wet and horrible morning cleared to become a dry bright day. Pupils had a fantastic time using their new map reading skills to find their way round the basic orienteering course at Mugdock Country Park. Some groups really went for the prize and scorched round the course in record beating time. Others decided to go at a more leisurely pace and enjoy the route and scenery along the way. Well done to everyone who took part!

Barcelona
On Friday 16th September 38 pupils along with Mr Anderson, Mr Hamilton, Mr Hand and Mr Coates headed off to Barcelona. After leaving the school at 3am we made our way to Edinburgh Airport in preparation for our 6:30am flight to Barcelona. Upon arrival in Barcelona we quickly noticed the temperature had increased by around 20 degrees and there was a strange yellow thing in the sky, the sun!! We then boarded our coach and made the 80min journey to our accommodation for the duration of our trip, Cambrils Park Resort in Salou. After a quick lunch it was off to Futbol Salou for our first training session. Read more...

National 5 River Trips
Our National 5 pupils each spent a day out of school exploring different parts of the River Gryffe. This allowed pupils to work in teams using fieldwork techniques to collect river data. This information will be used to produce the N5 assignments which are an important part of the N5 exam. We were really lucky with the weather and with the exception of some soggy wellies only day 3 pupils seemed to want to be soaking wet all day. It turns out that the water in the River Gryffe is REALLY cold! What a bunch of crazies!!
