Our first Careers Convention takes place today, Thursday 9th October, with exhibitors from over 30 local employers, universities, colleges and training organisations taking part.
Pupils from S2, S4 and S5 have been allocated time during the school day to attend the exhibition, while other pupils are able to visit at lunchtimes and after school. Parents/Carers and staff are welcome at any time.
Many thanks to both Mrs Stemplis’ Hospitality class for assisting in the preparation of the food, and to Mrs Zambonini’s 5th year Personal Development (PD) class.
Also, thanks to the staff who organised the event (Mrs Mulholland, Mrs Darroch, Mrs King, Mrs McDonald, Mrs Macfadyen, Mr Murray, Mrs Zambonini) and to all the OLHS staff who supported it.

After a long and difficult selection process, we can say many congratulations to our new school captains, Cairan McCarroll and Nicholas Murphy. House captains will be announced in the near future.
Mrs Darroch is just a wee bit chuffed cos they’re both Margaret House pupils. (Any first year pupils who don’t know Mrs Darroch should look for a teacher with a HUGE grin on her face, rather than just the usual happy, smiley faces of OLHS staff.)
Report by Nicole Kane and Louise Mullen
On Tuesday the 24th of June 2nd year pupils enjoyed a fun day out at M&D’s.
People on the trip were chosen based on attendance, time-keeping, homework and behaviour. The day started off with a long talk and we thought we were never going to leave, but in the end we did.
The weather was supposed to be wet, cloudy and dull, but it turned out to be a nice day for the time we were there. We got there by a double decker school bus (which smelled and some of the seats were damp.)
There were about 50 pupils at M&D’s who were with Mrs Darroch, Mr Martin, Mrs Connor, Mrs Mulholland and Mrs Zambonini. Everyone was very excited and couldn’t wait to get on the rides. Some of the rides we went on were Tornado, Water Logs, Swings and Flying Carpet. Most people bought their lunch at M&D’s or brought their own.
We checked our names off at 12–12:30 to make sure we were all there. At 2 o’clock we went back to the meeting point to go back to the school. We arrived back at school at 2:40 and were allowed to go home if we walked. We would like to thank the teachers who took us and organised the trip it was a very enjoyable day.
