PUPIL NEWS BULLETIN 

Wednesday 18th September 2019 

 

All Year Groups 

Could anyone wanting to enter the West Lothian Schools Swimming Heats, please fill out the sign-up sheet outside the PE base by Friday 20th September 

 

Amnesty's annual Peace Party will be taking place on Wednesday 18th September to celebrate the International Day of Peace (Saturday 21st). As always, it takes place in the Assembly Hall from 1:30 and you can enjoy a 'piece and jam' while jamming to the peace playlist featuring Bob Marley, John Lennon and Marvin Gaye (among others). Channel some inner peace with our Yoga challenge and spread some peace and tranquillity with our peace chain. It's an opportunity to find out more about what Amnesty is about, what we're currently campaigning on (the threat of climate change on our human rights and the insane use of non-sustainable palm oil in our school dinners). See you there. Peace out. 

 

Litter 

Please be respectful at lunch with your litter, if you can't find a bin outside of the school there are plenty inside the school and the school grounds. 

There will be wardens in the area and if you get caught leaving your litter you will be issued with a fine.
