A Word from Mrs Ingham, Head Teacher

02 December 2016

Again, I can report a busy week here at Knox Academy.

On Wednesday night two of our senior pupils attended an evening dedicated to Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce through the Edinburgh, East and Midlothian Chamber of Commerce. Jack Scott (S6), is the star of the video that has been put together to showcase the opportunity marketplace that has been put together by the DSYF group. Both he and Brigid Hay were accompanied at the event by Mr Flood, and the feedback that we received was very positive, “Jack did a fantastic job chatting with everyone in the room and the video was great. He was so confident and really engaging with everyone he spoke with. He really impressed the Minister for Employability and Training, Jamie Hepburn.”

Yesterday two separate groups of senior pupils went on their travels – one to Lockerbie and one to Aubigny. The Dumfriesshire-bound group were heading to Samye Ling Buddhist Monastery, to help with their Higher RMPS unit on Buddhism. I know that they will have had a very warm welcome from the community and it will really bring to life what they have been learning about in class. The Aubigny group consists of pupils studying Higher French and is an opportunity for them to immerse themselves in the language and culture ahead of their exams.

My hearty congratulations go out to Tom Wilson in S3 who has won a place in the senior section of the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland. On a similarly creative note I would also like to say “well done” to the pupils who built replica World War 1 Trenches as part of their S3 History...
