Chinese Connections


The first major interdisciplinary event of the school session took place on Monday 23 November, when S2 came together to apply the skills they have been developing across their curriculum. These are the core skills identified by the school community last session. They applied these skills in the form of a challenge to market cashmere products from Johnston’s of Elgin to China. A panel of judges and the whole year group watched the presentations in the afternoon, with each team making a pitch to choose them as the best team to market the products. Congratulations to Mrs Burpitt’s 2.4/5/6 Gordon class who emerged as the winning team. Thank you to our panel of judges (Jim Morris and Chloe Gammie from Johnstons, Selina, our Chinese volunteer teacher, and David Barnett, Head Teacher), to our team of staff who guided each team through the process, and to the pupils who displayed excellent teamwork and a keen grasp of key skills. We were also grateful to have in attendance Meryl James and Judith McKerrecher from the Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools.

To mark Armistice Day, a series of assemblies took place on Wednesday 11 November. S6 students Katrina Buckle, Kirsty McCulloch and Sean McHugh gave a presentation at each assembly about Armistice and Remembrance. The school was assisted in conducting these assemblies by its team of school chaplains. The whole school observed a two-minute silence at 11am, which was ended by the playing of the Last Post in the school amphitheatre by S2 pupil Alex Hadfield.
