Yesterday we had a visit from Stuart Windsor, the Special Ambassador for Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW). Stuart has travelled all over the world, investigating and reporting on cases where people of any faith and no faith are being persecuted for their beliefs. He informed us about places in the world where freedom of speech is restricted and challenged us to think about the freedoms we take for granted. His warmth, humour and fascinating stories captivated everyone's attention.
Please would parents take time at home to check their children's trip jackets? We have 1/2 pupils who have lost theirs.
The secondary school were delighted with the Burns Lunch. Mr Johnston, Alice's dad, played the pipes and Mr Creighton recited Burns' 'Address to the Haggis.' Mrs Parkinson, Mrs Airth and Chef Emma worked incredibly hard to give us a delicious Burns Supper.
Thank you everyone!
S1 are learning about food miles. Today, we estimated the total food miles of S2's lunch.... 165,985 miles!!!!
We are delighted that Ethan has joined us in transitus and we are looking forward to a great term ahead! Ben was showing Ethan how to use some apps on the iPad and teaching him how to draw his digital portrait.
Transitus artists were finishing their tree paintings last week. They used watercolour paints, PVA and buttons.
Transitus, S1 and S2 all enjoyed seeing their digital portrait prints. The prints are going to be part of a whole school picture in our exhibition at the Beacon in February.
