I meant to mention how proud I was of the pupils who took part in the Musical Theatre Showcase at Ross High School last Wednesday. They danced, sang and acted their way through the evening with gusto and were a credit to themselves and the school. I couldn’t have been more proud of their courage and teamwork.
It was also a real pleasure to attend the annual School Of Rugby awards dinner last Friday. The venue was packed with the largest number of team members, coaches and supporters that there has been at this occasion. The pupils gave their speeches with confidence and humour and we were all kept in very good order by Mr Gordon Bathgate. Thanks to Haddington Rugby Club for hosting us and for supporting the school’s rugby endeavours throughout the session.
This week we managed to dodge the rain and have our re-vamped sports’ day. The heats were in the morning, with really good numbers taking part. The finals were held in the afternoon alongside some of the more “fun” competitions. The pupils behaved impeccably, and we will announce the winning House at the Awards’ Ceremony.
Next week we are very excited to get to meet our new S1. The information evening for pupils and parents is on Monday 19 June at 6.30pm, however, doors are open from 5.30pm for parents to come and get lunch-money put onto Young Scot cards and to get things sorted. We then expect to see the new S1s on Tuesday and Wednesday at the usual school times. Pupils will congregate in the Hall and then will be buddied around the school by our S6. We are really looking forward to getting to know our new pupils better, and getting them set up so that they hit the ground running in August.
Have a great week.
