Here is this week’s update of recent events/news from Holy Rood, your Cluster Secondary School.

In the past week…..

  • Over 200 P7s came to Holy Rood for their 3 day visit. Pupils followed their S1 timetable and experienced the many new subjects and met teachers for the first time. Pupils decorated our unique “transition tree” with hand prints of their hopes and dreams which is proudly displayed for all to see. Parents were also given the opportunity to sample food from our wonderful canteen during the P7 Parents’ Evening. We look forward to welcoming the P7s to our school community in August.
  • We celebrated the hard work and efforts of S1-6 dancers including exam choreography from the National 5 and Higher classes in a special Dance Showcase for parents. 45 pupils all danced with confidence and style.
  • S4 pupils had great fun coding robots and exploring gaming software on a visit to Napier University at the IT4U event. Quote from the day “we want you at Napier”.
  • Advanced Higher Biology pupils learned all about DNA techniques in a special visit to Edinburgh University Kings Buildings.

A group of S1 pupils were given the leadership opportunity to participate in Modern Languages Visits to Cluster Primary 6 pupils The 12 S1 pupils talked to P6 pupils about their Modern Languages learning at Holy Rood and helped teachers lead interactive language games. We look forward to the P6 pupils’ transition to Holy Rood next year.
