Issue Number 06 | March 2020 Ayr Beach Clean P7 Welcome Evening Well done to S4 Workout Students Conner, Daniel, Brannon, Owen, Toni-Marie and Ross who participated in the Ayr Beach Clean last month. It seems they were lucky enough to get a sunny day for the venture! Our P7 Parents’ Welcome Evening held on Tuesday was a great success with almost 450 parents and pupils attending. We also had over 80 young people, mostly from S1, helping on the night. Sincere thanks to Mr Hobson for organising the evening and to staff who led information sessions for the tour. We hope that parents and pupils found it useful. Police Scotland Young Volunteer Award Congratulations to Lucas in S3 who received the Police Scotland Young Volunteer Award for successfully completing his 12-week induction period. Lucas will go on to volunteer with the South Ayrshire team at various events across the authority. P7 Maths Challenge and Careers Event Last month our future S1s had a fantastic time working together to solve a range of maths puzzles and learning about the world of work. Many thanks to Mr Hobson and the team for organising the event, also to the Maths Department, Gemma Fraser, S6 scientists and S3 volunteers. We look forward to welcoming our new S1s next year. 4
