Crazy Hair Day – Friday 3 March 2017

We are looking forward to our ‘Crazy Hair Day’ on Friday 3 March, organised by our fundraising committee. In exchange for a suggested donation of £1, all students and staff can feel free to wear their hair in suitably ‘crazy’ fashion. All proceeds will be donated to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides wigs and hair pieces for children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment.

Elgin Academy / Robertson Partnership – first project comes to fruition

Elgin Academy and Robertson celebrated the culmination of the first major project in our five-year partnership on Friday 17 February. All of our S3 pupils have been working in teams in the Design & Technology Department to design a “Climbers’ Retreat”. The final took place on Friday, when a team of judges from Robertson chose the first, second and third entries.

The winners were DJK Designs ( Damla Tunc ; Jenna Stringman :Kirsty Mcleod)

Second place was ‘ Henderson’ ( Erin Bain; Vivienne Boyd; Morven Donaghy; Jolie Henderson) and Third place went to Timberus (Owen Jeffrey; Brandon George; Daniel Thomson; Ibrahim Beg; Lee Nicol )

This was followed by an event called “Making Education Our Business”, when parents, pupils and partners were able to hear more about the opportunities presented by our partnership. The audience heard from Mike Turner, Managing Director of Robertson Timber Engineering, David Barnett, Head Teacher, and Moira Stickle, DYW Moray manager. A range of partners were on hand to talk about potential careers, including Skills Development Scotland, the CITB, local STEM Ambassadors and the University of the Highlands and Islands.
