There has been loads going on in school this week!
We are delighted to welcome seven student teachers to Gleniffer High this week in a range of subjects across the school. They will spend two weeks with us now and then return in November for a longer placement. We hope they enjoy their time here and get an understanding of what a great profession this is.
Parent Council met on Monday night and Emma Spence and Harry Carlin presented for the first time as Badge Holders. They did a great job and were able to share some of the highlights of the year so far.
The House Captains met with me this week to discuss our preparations for Foodbank collection next week. They are determined to smash last year’s figure. Pupils can donate non-perishable items all week with the final collection taking place Friday. Friday is non-uniform and pupils should try to donate to the value of £1. The House Captains are in competition to see who can collect the most.
The Student Council presented at S1-3 assemblies this week. Well done to Jessica and Erin for producing the presentation and to the young people who stood up and talked in front of a very big audience. We also had performances at our S1 and S2 assemblies from pupils and a S3 pupil shared his experience of St Mirren Football Academy.
The German Exchange departed yesterday and have arrived safely in Furth. They were very excited before they left and I’m sure will have lots to tell us when they return next week.
The S6 group photo was taken on Thursday and individual photos Friday. Lots of smiling faces and lovely uniform. S6 had a quiz night on Thursday, organised (very strictly) by the Badge Holders. There were 9 rounds with a bumper music round in there. The hardest category without a doubt was the Disney round, produced by Kennedy Campbell!! Well done to the winning team “Acquiesce” and of course the 2nd place staff team “The Mathletes”.
Today is Active Girls Day. Mrs Thomson has been putting S1-3 girls through their paces in Zumba and Pound. Check out Twitter for photos and videos. Well done to everyone involved!!
