The club outside Sensation

12 pupils from the Gamemaker club visited Sensation yesterday to take part in a robotics workshop. The pupils were given the challenge to program a Lego Mindstorms robot to navigate through a maze and shoot at a target. All the teams succeeded in the challenge and their behaviour was impeccable. Pupils also got a chance to look around the Monsters, Myths and Legends exhibition.

Dundee Schools Superchef Cupcake Challenge

Last week 3 of our S4 pupils (Lisa Monaghan, Rachael Dashwood and Chloe Houston) entered the Dundee Flower and Food Festival Cupcake Competition. Each Secondary School in the city enters this competition with each school being allowed up to three entrants. The theme for this years competition was 'Natural Scotland'. A team of judges including Martin Goodfellow from Goodfellow & Stevens and the Hospitality Chef from Dundee college judged entrants from across the city. St Pauls came out on top form not only winning ' BEST SCHOOL ' (for the second year in a row) but also winning 1st prize thanks to Lisa Monaghan. Well done girls!! Lisa won a cash prize of £50 aswell as £100 for the Home Economics department. The girls were overjoyed and also received VIP passes to the festival on the saturday and also got to meet Paul Hollywood from the 'Great British Bakeoff'.

Strathmore Trophy 2013

Kieran Duffy, Rachel Walker, Wiktoria Zachcial and Danielle Lynch joined school pupils from across Tayside, Perth, Aberdeenshire and Fife to take part in the University of Dundee's annual Strathmore Trophy challenge on Monday 24th June. The challenge this year was to create a digital time capsule of 8 pictures or videos which would sum up teenage life today, so that if people looked at it 1000 years from now they could get an idea of what life was like in 2013. The team worked really well together and came up with a thoughtful and well-structured piece of work and were unlucky not to win a prize but they were a credit to the school and got a chance to get a taste of what studying at Dundee University might be like.
