A Word from Mrs Rodger, Head Teacher

It’s a bumper update this week, covering the activities of the last fortnight in school. (There was no head teacher’s update last week as my son got married - school work had to take a backseat.)

Senior pupils studying RMPS (religious, moral and philosophical studies) recently learnt more about the Buddhist way of life on a visit to the Tibetan Buddhist temple in Dumfries and Galloway. The group were given a tour by nun Ani Duklar, who showed them around the peace garden, the stupa and inside the beautifully ornate temple.  There was then an opportunity to try some meditation and to sit in on traditional Tibetan prayers, followed by some delicious vegetarian food.

On 30 November, a group of senior French pupils and staff travelled to Aubigny-sur-Nère, Haddington’s twin town. There were plenty of opportunities to practise their French speaking skills, including staying with host families, visiting the local school and meeting members of the community. The group also explored Chambord Castle, the nearby town of Brouges and the local market, as well as visiting Paris to see the sights. From the Twitter updates, it was clear that food played a big part, too, with many French delicacies being tasted throughout the trip. Thank you to Ms McBride, Ms Laudi and the Haddington and Aubigny Twinning Associations for ensuring that the trip was such a great success.
