On 26th May, Mr Reynolds, Mr MacLean and Mrs Barbour were guests of honour at the presentation of an art work commemorating the Jewish children who were victims of the Holocaust during the 2nd World War. The colourful canvas was the result of a collaboration by Mrs Gollan’s English class 1Y1 after being inspired by reading The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and hearing about her visit to Auschwitz in September 2014.
Thirty S2 students were this week given a sneak peak at the new Sky Academy Skills Studios in Livingston, West Lothian.

The students had the opportunity to go behind the scenes at Sky, seeing the Contact Centre, learning about different job roles and discussing the skills they require to work there.
