Forbes McFall

Everyone in school was shocked and deeply saddened when they heard of the passing of Forbes McFall, PT Maths, on Monday 18 April 2016.  Mr McFall was an extremely talented teacher, who pupils liked greatly, who they respected, and who they found inspirational. He had a huge impact on the lives of our students. Mr McFall was also an excellent colleague, and a great friend to many.

A Book of Condolence has been opened, and is available at the school reception. Pupils, former pupils, colleagues, parents and friends are encouraged to contribute.

S4/5/6 Last day

The school had a very enjoyable last day of classes for students in S4, S5 and S6. Our S6 leavers were treated to a celebratory breakfast provided by the HE department in the staffroom, before going on later to enjoy their leavers’ ceremony. Some got quite emotional, marking their last ever day of classes in Elgin Academy. Students leaving from S4 and S5 had their leavers’ ceremony in the afternoon.

Well done to all for a happy, respectful day. We send all our S4/5/6 students all our best wishes for the forthcoming exams.
