Dunbar Grammar School welcomed 20 Dutch Principals and Vice-Principals on Tuesday afternoon. The Dutch Government is currently looking at changing their education system and is interested in moving towards a Scottish Curriculum for Excellence model. They were given a presentation by Mr Raffaelli and Mrs Slowther and then met with 11 S1-3 students whom they grilled on their experiences at the school. All of the students were very complimentary of the school and spoke very articulately. They then matched up with the students and accompanied them to their last class. Afterwards we all came back together for a final plenary session. They were incredibly impressed with the school and our teachers and students. We were all very proud as always with the school’s reputation spreading every further.
Well done to the following students who took part in the Geography Quiz at Heriot’s on Tuesday : Oliver Alsop, Thomas Calder, Fionny Davison, Poppy Savage, Eva Dowding and Rhian Dowding. The students were an asset to the school, and one of the teams was in the lead for the majority of the quiz and eventually came third. Congratulations to them all!
East Lothian Showcase Concert
Well done to all the musicians and instrumental staff who took part in the East Lothian Showcase concert in front of a packed Brunton Theatre audience on Tuesday 13th March. The participants were a credit to the school and all their hard work and dedication in rehearsals really paid off. A massive well done to everyone involved.
Mental Health Week
All this week, various events have been taking place on the theme of mental health. The whole programme was put together by a group of students who also led the majority of the activities. The week proved to be great fun as well as being very informative. Please see the events calendar below:
