Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Dofe3 DofE4

On Wednesday afternoon our Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group completed their expedition section with a final presentation. Both groups gave a professional, informative and humorous presentation describing their Qualifying Expedition and their aims, which were all about the use of the land in the Lammermuir Hills. Our guests were greatly impressed. Most of the group are hoping to go on and complete their Gold Award over the next two years.

S3 iPad Distribution Event

We held our S3 iPad Distribution Event at the school on Tuesday 28th October and what a turn out we had from parents/carers and students! As part of our programme, we had an important input from the City’s Digital Learning Team and an e-safety presentation delivered by PC Smith. We look forward to seeing how our S3 students make use of these devices to enhance their learning throughout this year and beyond.
