Science Trip

Science 1 science 2

5 of our S2 girls attended an all-day workshop event at Heriot Watt University on Wednesday with Mr McEwan. They were learning about science, engineering and technology in a fun and inspirational context.  They had a great day and were a credit to our school!

Senior Citizens Coffee Morning

On Wednesday 10 December, despite some of the worst gales we’ve seen,  Forrester Sixth Year pupils hosted 49 Senior Citizens at our Annual Coffee Morning.

This Tradition is now in its 23rd year and going strong.   The event was organised and hosted by all or our S6 pupils who provided the entertainment and refreshments and had a great  time chatting with our guests.

We had musical entertainment from Miss Christie’s Dancers and our very own magician who worked the tables to everyone’s amazement.  There was a wonderful atmosphere as the S6 and Senior Citizens worked in teams together on our Festive Quiz followed by Bingo and a raffle with prizes galore.

We finished off with a Christmas sing-a-long but no morning would be complete without a visit from Santa and his elves with presents for all. Much fun was had .

This was a really lovely morning and our S6 did themselves proud!!

Our local senior citizens left us already planning for next year’s event and full of praise for our young people and the care they had received.

Renewable Energy Challenge

90 of our S3 students recently participated in the Renewable Energy Challenge.

This event was delivered by the Earth Sciences faculty from St Andrews University and involved our students forming a renewable energy company, allocating jobs, locating, costing, designing and marketing wind turbines.

The wind turbine designs were tested for efficiency and voltage production, and our winning team actually designed a turbine that produced the best voltage out of any in Scotland this year! It seems we have some budding engineers!

This challenge not only involves our students in Global Citizenship and cooperative learning, but it also highlights the many different careers available within the Renewable Energy sector in Scotland.
