CHARITY FUN RUN : Mrs Ainslie's PSP class (Tweed 2) is organising a charity fun run in aid of the Children's Ward at the BGH. The fun run takes place on Wednesday 10th May during PSP time and will be a circuit of the school, including the playing fields and Scott Park. The distance is flexible - you can complete the circuit as many or as few times as you wish - so you don't have to be a long-distance runner to participate. It's just for fun! If you are interested in participating, see Mrs Ainslie in 206. The deadline for entry is breaktime next Wednesday (26th).

BIKE SHED : You will have noticed that the school has received a new bike shed in the main playground.  This is for pupils, staff and visitors to use and we hope many will.  If you intend to use it please ensure you have a padlock for your bike and if using the locker above to store bike helmet and other equipment you will need to bring a smaller lock for this as well.   We hope that this will be well used and help to promote cycling as healthy lifestyle that everyone can enjoy.

ENGINEERING SCIENCE CLUB:  on Tuesday this week and next is cancelled due to exam revision, it will restart on May.
Thank you.
