And an extra well done to Seton for winning the interhouse rugby tournament on Friday 27th Feb, becoming the first ever winners of the ‘Galbraith Cup’. Gosford took second place, with Grange trailing in third.

Doodle Day: Reminder

Just a reminder that ‘Doodle Day’ is tomorrow (Friday 27th February). Remember to bring £1, or any spare change you can, to help this worthwhile charity, which raises funds to help people whose lives are affected by epilepsy and neurofibromatosis.

Sixth years will be coming round the register classes tomorrow to collect donations.All Doodle entries must be in to the Art Department by tomorrow, so a ‘Doodle Wall’ / ‘Doodle Trail’ around the school can be constructed.

Donations – Every little helps!

First Interhouse Sports Comp: Rugby Tens

The first interhouse sports event – Rugby Tens – will be taking place on Friday 27th February, from 12 noon to 2pm.

The teams for each house are made up from a mix of 4th, 5th and 6th years (although we are still looking for some 4th years to take part. Interested? Come to the S6 common room at break or lunch on before the end of Wednesday morning break). The final list of players will be posted on Thursday.

Feel free to come along to the Rugby pitches on Friday to spectate, and support your house!

Staff: House points for February will be collected on Friday 27th February, periods 1 & 2 

Success @ PLHS

Today we launch the ‘Success @ PLHS‘ site, which aims to share and celebrate all the successes of the Pupil’s of Preston Lodge High School, with the entire school. A new widget has been added to the side bar of the daily notices, and a site created here which has a continual flow of student successes as they come in. The widget in the sidebar cycles through the 10 most recent successes, but the entire record can be found on the success site. 

Well done to everyone so far, and good luck to everyone!

Staff: if you’d like to share a success, add house points etc. please contact Euan Doidge (“pl03doide@prestonlodge.e-lothian.sch.uk”)

Past Polls

The results from the previous polls, which pit rival subjects against each other, can now be found in the ‘Past Polls’ tab at the top of the page, and here.

Look out for the next poll, between Geography, History, Modern Studies and RME, which will take place after the February break.

February 4th – World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day is marked on 4 February to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. It is led by the International Union Against Cancer(UICC), a global consortium of more than 280 cancer-fighting organizations in over 90 countries. World Cancer Day targets the public through global communications marking, and encourages policy makers and UICC member organizations to make cancer a political priority.

The campaign emphasizes that 43% of cancers can be prevented through these healthy behaviors:

  • Provide a smoke-free environment for children
  • Be physically active, eat a balanced, healthy diet, and avoid obesity
  • Learn about vaccines for virus-related liver and cervical cancers
  • Avoid over-exposure to the sun

House Points: Collection

Staff: Thanks for handing in the points for December on Friday – if there are still any more to come in, could you please send them to Euan Doidge (“pl03doide@prestonlodge.e-lothian.sch.uk”) if possible, by the end of Monday 2nd February.

Just to let you know how we’ve pegged the points:

Pupil’s of the Month: 20 points each

Pupil’s of the Week: 10 points each

Pozzies: 5 points each

Feel free to come up with your own  points tariff to suit your department etc.

Also, if you find it easier, you can email the points in as they happen throughout the weeks, instead of collating them all at the end of the month.
