Christmas Events

Knox Academy was full of Christmas fun in the last week before the festive break and I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff and pupils who worked so hard to make this happen.

Christmas Boxes  -  Every register class showed both their creativity and kindness by filling boxes with  goodies for people in our community, then decorating the boxes. Designs were based on Christmas songs and there were some amazing creations. I am very grateful to members of our Parent Council who helped me to judge the boxes – a very difficult task as the standard was so high. After being judged, the filled boxes were delivered to Social Work, the Foodbank, the Butts sheltered housing and Haddington Day Centre. Some of our S1 pupils helped to deliver the boxes, and they had a lovely time at the Day Centre chatting to the clients. The winning designs were as follows:
Garleton  4L2
Lammerlaw  3L1
Traprain  5T2
Highly commended Meadowpark
Overall winner  4G1.

Christmas Concerts  -  On Tuesday of the last week, the school was filled with music at two wonderful concerts. In the afternoon, the P7 pupils joined the audience, and this was followed in the evening by a sell-out event. And no wonder! The talent and dedication of so many of our pupils was clear, and it was a joy to listen to the performers. You may have seen the lovely write-up of the event in The Courier, by an appreciative audience member.

S6 Pantomime  -  We saw a very different kind of show in the Hall...
