Prospective S1 Pupils Visit Elgin Academy

Almost 200 students, due to join us in August, visited the school on Tuesday 15 April 2014, to take part in an orientation day in preparation for their transition to S1. This is but one part of a comprehensive transition programme. After introductions in the hall, they were given a tour of the school by current S5 students, and then spent the rest of the morning in the PE department, experiencing several different activities, including orienteering. We look forward to the two induction days in June, when the pupils will follow their new timetable.DSC_0111

Students v Staff – Final Event



The last in a series of five sporting challenges between the S6 students and the staff took place on Monday 14 April, with the series finely poised at 2-2. A football match was held at Borough Briggs in memory of Matthew Campbell, with £300 being raised at the game for CLIC Sargent, a charity caring for children with cancer providing support for families at home and in hospital. On a sunny evening, the students ran out 7-2 winners, meaning that they also won the series. Our thanks go to Elgin City Football Club for allowing us to use their facilities, to Douglas Ross for refereeing, and to Wallace Rodger and Natalie Moir, our Sports Ambassadors, for organising the event.
