Confucius Classroom Hub Launch

On Tuesday 29 November, the Moray Confucius Classroom Hub was officially launched, based in Elgin Academy as a Moray-wide resource. Supported by the Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools (CISS), this resource will enable children and young people from 3-18 across Moray to access teaching and resources as they learn about Chinese culture and language. Head of Schools and Curriculum Development, Vivienne Cross, cut the ribbon to open the new classroom, with the support of Fan Lin from CISS. A wide range of schools took part in the launch event, giving presentations in the hall. We look forward to being part of the Moray Hub as we take forward the learning of Mandarin in school.dsc_0411dsc_0388dsc_0309dsc_0319

Enterprising Maths Success

While most pupils were enjoying two days off school for the inservice days, four members of our Junior Maths Team – Daniel Campbell, Jolie Henderson, Dariusz Miskiewicz and Jacob Holder – gave up their free time to travel with Mr Hume to the national final of the Scottish Enterprising Mathematics Competition. The team performed very well and placed 14th in Scotland – a great achievement. They received certificates as well as a glass trophy for the school. Well done to the team for doing so well, and giving up their holiday in order to take part!

Empowering Teachers and Communities to Achieve Excellence & Equity – A Governance Review of Scottish Education

The Scottish Government is seeking your views on how education in Scotland is run, including who should take decisions in relation to the education of children and young people, and how funding can be made fairer. It also asks about the support teachers and practitioners need to do their jobs well and how this can be improved.

They want to hear from as many people as possible – from those with a formal role in Scottish education and those with a stake in its success.

If you would like to take part in the consultation, please follow this link:
