At the beginning of November our 10 Advanced Higher Geography students attended a 3 day course at Kindrogan Field Studies Centre in Perthshire. This enabled them to learn sampling and processing techniques to apply to their Geographical Studies.
On arrival the students embarked on a study of a soil catena. After a lot of data collection, the students continued their investigations in the laboratory where they analysed their data, as well as stocking up tea and scones.

The following is a Blog post written by one of our talented students, Thomas Steedman, following his trip down south to meet Mikel Arteta….
Only two pupils out of the whole of Forrester high school had the chance to go down to London and meet Mikel, fortunately this amazing opportunity was given to Abigail and I. The whole thing came about when our school entered the competition to go down to London, promote the new puma kit and meet Mikel. When we found ourselves in the final we had to get as many people as possible to go onto the Transworld soccer Facebook page and like the comment that said Forrester high school. There was an announcement made from Trans World that night on Facebook that the winners were Forrester high school and Tynecastle colts.
A few weeks back Trans World soccer publicised a world wide competition on their Facebook page with the prize of 2 pupils from the winning club/team being selected to meet Arsenal Captain Mikel Arteta and take part in a photo shoot and press conference to celebrate him becoming Trans World Soccer Ambassador.
To win the competition we had to get through the first round and into the final by sharing and liking the Trans World Facebook page. We were very successful in our efforts and made it into the final! To win the overall competition we needed to get the most amount of likes under our name in the final competition post.
