Well we got here and what an incredible year of achievements it has been.

All of our young people have been kayaking, and participated in Masterclasses in German, Community Art and Outdoor Learning.

They have planned, shopped for and cooked delicious meals and produced home baking in the Food Court and Life Skills Flat.

More cakes and buns have been lovingly made for fund-raising activities: Autism Awareness, Cash for Kids and Meadowpark Funds. Read more sucess stories here...Meadowpark Matters

Having come from a primary background it took me a few years to work out why June was a quieter month in high schools: senior pupils have left and the new S1s don’t establish themselves until August so most secondary teachers are currently enjoying a slightly quieter phase.
