Another very busy week at Dunblane High School as edge ever closer to the Christmas break. Below is just a small flavour of what took place last week and what is to come in our final week of the term.
S3 & S4 Christmas Dance
On Tuesday night we held a fantastic Christmas Dance for pupils in S3 and S4. Mr Watson was a tremendous MC for the Scottish Country Dancing and Mr Smith (our own resident DJ) did a great job with the disco. Thanks to all that attended and for the excellent behaviour shown throughout the night.
Our S2 Football team were unfortunately defeated on Tuesday night to a last minute goal against Musselburgh Grammar School in the 4th Round of the Scottish Cup,losing the match 2-1.
P7 Christmas Party
As part of the transition programme, we hosted a Christmas party for all our Primary 7 pupils on wednesday afternoon in the Murray Hall. Thanks to Mr Ritchie and Mrs McLachlan for leading the pupils through the dances.
We held our annual Christmas Ball for our senior students last night. Over 200 pupils attended the event, including Senior Prefects from the other Stirling Secondary Schools. A great amount of time was given to the event by DHS staff and FES staff who transformed our Atrium and the Murray Hall to look resplendent. Thank you to all the staff who gave their time so generously last night.
Christmas Jumper Day
Many pupils and staff took part in Christmas Jumper Day today, to raise money for Save the Children. Over £300 was raised so thank and well done to all who participated.
Well done to all S1 pupils who have been involved in Dragon’s Den. Today one selected group from each PSR class pitched towards the Dragon’s, trying to sell their product to them to entice investment. Well done to the winning team of Joseph Duncan, Rhys Gibbs, Finlay Spence, Alex Brimlow and Jamie McOuat.
Modern Languages Competition
Well done to Sophie Bowie, Patrick Scott, Victoria Hibberd, and Abbie Porter – 3K2 and Elise Rutherford, Chris King, Marnie Thomson and Nicole Devlin, 3R1. Through Modern Languages, they entered a competition to design a storyboard which was based on the theme of migration and welcome/Sustainable Tourism, or Trade, and had to incorporate a foreign language. and they have progressed through to the National final. They have now been invited to a whole-day film making workshop in Edinburgh, where 6 teams from across Scotland will spend the day working with media professionals to shoot and edit the films they outlined in their storyboards.
