A Word from Mrs Ingham, Head Teacher

24 June 2016

Another busy week here at Knox.

The P7s turned up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for their two day visit on Tuesday and Wednesday. They got to grips with the school very quickly and seemed very much at home. It was great to see them bonding with their S6 buddies and I know that some of the P7s will be keeping in touch with the older pupils over the summer.

We’ve been having our “Money Week” this week – where, unsurprisingly, the theme of money has run through a lot of classes and lessons. We kicked off last Friday with the new S2 playing a giant “Game of Life” and we will be finishing off today with finding out if pupils know more about money, feel more comfortable about it and, hopefully, have developed their thinking around money and the cost of living. The school also hosted an IET Faraday Challenge Day yesterday for some of our new S2 pupils. The event was planned to tie in with the BBC's Make It Digital campaign and we were one of only 6 Scottish Secondary Schools...
