Ruaraidh gave an excellent presentation on Leon Trotsky and his involvement with the Russian revolution.
The Higher history class have all written outstanding essays on the Labour reforms after WWII. A great achievement this early on in the course.
P4-S6 took part in the National Remembrance Assembly high was shown live online from the Tower of London. We joined thousands of school pupils across the UK who watched the collection of interviews, poems and songs. We joined the nation in standing for the playing of Last Post and then finished our assembly by singing our own song of remembrance 'Greater Love.'
We will remember them.
A few months ago a note was given to all pupils to pass on to parents advising that there is an issue with emails from the school email@example.com and Hotmail accounts. Depending on the content of the emails sent from info@cedars, Hotmail is largely treating these as junk. This means that those parents with Hotmail accounts are not seeing many of the emails from the school which contain information concerning trips, parents evenings, events etc. The school is currently working with Hotmail to resolve this issue. In the meantime, please can parents with Hotmail accounts apply the suggested workaround of adding the firstname.lastname@example.org to their contacts. As soon as we hear back from Hotmail regarding a resolution, we will let you know.
