Fifty staff and 3rd year pupils returned from a week’s trip to Spain absolutely exhausted by the end of their long bus trip, but delighted with their visit. The group travelled to Barcelona for a tour around the city and a visit to the Nou Camp Stadium, and a trip to Port Aventura.
There were plenty of opportunities to practise their languages as they drove through France and Spain in glorious sunshine before returning back to normal weather in Motherwell.

Class 4A organised a ‘Soak the Teacher’event to raise funds for Lenten Charities. 50p was just too good an opportunity for some pupils who spent all their pocket money and ended up borrowing more!
Thanks to the staff who included Mrs Anderson, Miss Kane, Father Frank King, Mr Brogan, Mr MacMaster, Ms Campbell, Miss Miller and Mr Law.
The yard rang with the roar of the Colosseum on Friday, as Soak the Teacher heralded the end of Lenten Charities fund-raising for this year. When a sponge or bucket hit its mark, and hit it well, there was a cry of appreciation from the crowd for the bravery of the participants and the audacity of their opponents.
Many thanks to this year’s Warriors of the Water: Mr Brogan, Ms Clements, Mr Law, Mr Macmaster, Mr Millar and Ms Miller for being very good sports and having their hairstyles ruined for the day.
Thanks also to Toni-Marie McFadden and Michael McCabe for the photographs.
