Report by Ms Steinert
The annual Awards Ceremony was held on Thursday 2nd October in a packed games hall where over 300 pupils received their awards. The event was kicked off with a bagpipe solo of Highland Cathedral by Michael Clark followed by an opening prayer from our school chaplain, Fr Frank King.
Our special guest, Mr James McVittie, OBE, was introduced by School Captain, Aaron Hawthorne. Mr McVittie, former head teacher of St Ninian’s High School in East Renfrewshire, spoke to the gathered audience about the buzz of working with young people and the importance of Catholic Education. He was a highly motivational speaker and both pupils and parents enjoyed his talk.
The performing arts department were their usual magnificent selves, with a bagpipe solo of Highland Cathedral by Michael Clark, a rendition of Let the River Run by the choir and Highlights from Brave by the school concert band.
Following the presentation of the awards, School Captain, Aimee Houston, gave the vote of thanks.
Photographs of the award winners were on sale for £1 from the Art Department. If any parent or guardian still wishes to purchase a copy, their son or daughter should see Mrs Steinert.
