Kelvinside Academy

REMEMBRANCE Day was held last Friday in the traditional way.

A service in the Gilchrist Theatre was led by Rev David Keddie who urged the pupils not just to thank the fallen for their sacrifice, but to honour those who have tried to make a better, more peaceful world by continuing their work. As always, Kelvinside pupils have spent the week selling poppies and doing their best to aid the British Legion and other organisations who help returned service personnel.

A group of 3rd year army cadets are going to Redford barracks in Edinburgh this weekend to continue their training. Activities include assault courses and team building and leadership exercises. This annual trip is always enjoyed and appreciated by the cadets as they put their skills and confidence to the test.

Rehearsals are in full swing for Thoroughly Modern Millie, and if the final show is to reflect the hard work and commitment shown by the teachers and pupils who are organising it, it should be unforgettable. Dates for the show are November 29 to December 1, and suggested donations for tickets are £4 for adults and £2 for children.

The Green and Purple groups from the Kelvinside Academy nursery had a trip to Yorkhill Hospital last week to present them with a cheque for £121. Activities including a chocolate box raffle raised the money which was presented to the hospital by nursery teacher Tracey Nugent.

Sports activities this weekend: rugby – 1st XV, S3/4, S2 A & B, S1 A & B, Senior Prep A & B and Junior 6 A & B are all playing St Aloysius College; the hockey girls are playing Hutchesons’ Grammar School.
