Cinema Squad

A group of S3 Computing students have been taking part in a national film project this year. The pupils worked with a local filmmaker Sandie Jamieson to devise, script, film and edit their own short film. The project ended with the pupils showcasing their film at the Edinburgh Filmhouse along with 6 other schools from across the country. The pupils took part in a Q&A session and talked confidently and eloquently about the project to a large cinema audience. Click here for more information.

Bartosz, Craig, Mr Gill and the Gourdie Chariot

Two of our S5 pupils Bartosz and Craig (along with Mr Gill for technical support) travelled down to Edinburgh on a dreach Saturday in June to compete in the Annual National Robot Games. The pair took the radio controlled robot chariot, hand built during lunchtimes and free periods and competed in tug of war, obstacle course and football challenges. The boys did well, getting a sub 1 minute time on the obstacle course, scoring a goal in the football match and getting to the quarter finals of the tug of war with the help of some Tate and Lyle. Congratulations to Craig for winning the team flag design competition as well. Thanks also to the Art department who managed to totally transform our chariot at very short notice. It looked fantastic. Find out more at click here
