On Monday 4th June the new S5 had an Induction Day with Mrs Pirie, which was all about team building. We did different activities to give us an idea of what it is going to be like in the future. The activities included: finding objects as a team, using different ideas to build objects then competed with the other teams to win points, they also made their own group game to show to the other teams

Senior Prom

The senior prom was held on Tuesday 5th June, at the Brig O Doon in Alloway, and it was luckily a lovely sunny day. It was well attended by staff and particularly pupils who all had a fantastic time. There was a brilliant meal of leek and potato soup, followed by breast of chicken with orange stuffing and then fruit meringues, which were all delicious.  After the meal the brilliant band Systrum entertained us all with some of the S5 girls even giving us a tune on the karaoke. As you can see from the pictures every one had a fantastic time and a big thank you must go to every one who helped to organise it particularly KirstyWilson, Sam Fleming, Linzi Scobie and Amy McCrindle.
