There were six rounds
of questions which included: General knowledge; Team questions; two
rounds of individual questions separated by an anagram round as well
as a final quick fire round at the end.
Carrick came second
with a score of 32, and were just beaten by St Andrew’s secondary

my first time at this quiz and I found it ok and would probably do
it again next year.

Recently, 45 pupils
from S1-S6 travelled to the King’s Theatre in Glasgow to see a
production of the popular stage show, ‘Blood Brothers’.
The trip was
organised by the English Department and Mr Wilson, Miss Mcgugan, Ms
Baird and Miss Adam attended. All pupils were well behaved and
everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The story followed the
characters from childhood to adulthood and the pupils found the
antics of the young boys very funny.
Rachel McKellar of 5th
year told us that she found it very interesting and would definitely
go and see it again. Daniel Hamilton, also of 5th year,
told us that he would recommend it and thought the production was
very good. Mr Wilson kindly organised ice cream and cola at the
break for all pupils and Miss Adam said she was very impressed with
the pupil’s behaviour on the trip.
