Lunchtime Club


On Tuesday 20th February Mrs Normansell is running a lunchtime club for S2 pupils at 1.10pm in room 023. We will be looking at podcasting, movie-making and digital photography. Pupils who are interested should give their name to Mrs Normansell.


Duke of Edinburgh


A group of Bronze and Silver candidates from Carrick Academy were recently invited to attend the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Presentation evening at Jabil Circuits, Ayr. They were presented with the Awards and later enjoyed a buffet supper.


Jabil are keen supporters of the Award and have hosted the event on several occasions. It is a chance for young people from all over South Ayrshire to come together and celebrate their achievements.


Well done to all Carrick Academy candidates!!


Tree of Knowlege - Laugh in the Face of Exams!


S3 pupils were involved in a half-day workshop in the Town Hall with staff from the Tree of Knowledge.  The focus was on how to prepare for exams and setting future goals.  The presentation was interactive and very entertaining - each pupil was given a clock and had to make a model demonstrating their ambition - this model stays in the clock as a reminder of the event!




Music Trip


A group of 20 pupils went to the Centre Stage Music Theatre in Kilmarnock on Thursday 15th February to watch a musical performance of “Witches of Eastwick” A great time was had by all.  Look out for a full report later.




The S3 team are playing away to Duncanrig on Wednesday 14th February and we wish them the best of luck. Also the Carrick 1st XV team are also playing against Duncanrig 1st XV team and we will have an update on how both teams get on in the near future.


Scotland v Wales Trip



A group of 100 Carrick pupils headed of to watch Scotland v Wales at Murryfield on Saturday 10th February. The group had fantastic seats and made sure they were heard over everyone else. Even though it was an incredibly cold day a great time was had by all with the final score of Scotland 21- Wales 9 reflecting this. The next game is Scotland v Ireland and there are still some tickets left so anyone interested in gong should contact Mr Brown.
