Boys and Girls Football Results

Well done to the girls team for a 3-1 win vs ICS last night. Despite going 1-0 down they came back to win with an impressive hat-trick from Alexi.

The boys won 1-0 thanks to a well taken goal from Nathan. Louis in Grade 6 had an eye catching debut and showed good skill and composure.

Congratulations to both teams!

Instagram Privacy Settings

It has been brought to our attention that a number of Grade 7-9 students received a message of an inappropriate nature to their Instagram accounts. This sounds like it was a hack distributed to many Instagram users. Can students please check that their privacy settings on their social media accounts are appropriately set. Please see instructions for instagram privacy settings below. Please see Ms Crannell or Eilidh if you need any help.

All students, MUN Club event (practise session)

The MUN Club will hold a 'practise' MUN Committee debate on Thursday 26 November 2015. This will be an opportunity for practical experience of being in a committee. It is a good place to start for someone who knows nothing about MUN or has never been to a conference. It will take place from 1545 until 1700 in Room T02.

The theme for debate is "Sustainable development goals: promoting gender equality." Rachel and Alexi will be chairing.

For all students who want to take part, please email Ms Rose before lunch on Thursday 12 November to confirm that you will attend. You will then be assigned (via email) a country to represent.

MUN Clubs in the next two weeks will focus on preparing for the event.
