    The Annual Talent Show will be held, in the School, on Thursday 4 March. This is always a hugely popular event and tickets will be on sale in a few days time. Auditions have taken place and the acts have been selected. Once again, it has all the makings of a great night and I would advise you to buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

  6. Health Fayre Week
    Monday 8 March sees the beginning of our Health Fayre. This is a week-long set of activities in which every pupil in the School participates I would invite any of you to come along - at any time - during the week and 'pop in' to see the activities for yourself.
    Everyone must take care of their health. You only get one chance so why not come along and see the latest health 'tips' - and see the fun that goes with it!
  7. Blood Transfusion Service
    On Thursday 11 March, the Blood Transfusion Service will be visiting the School all day.
    I would ask all of you to come along and join staff and pupils in donating blood. This is truly a life-preserving deed and is absolutely vital to people of all ages and with a variety of ailments. Literally, you will be saving a life by donating a pint of blood. Please contact either Mr Stewart or Mr Fleming to book an appointment, which should only take around 15/20 minutes in total. I would ask all of you to make an effort for this wonderful cause.

Yours faithfully
