Sports Day was fantastic this year , we had great weather and we all had alot of fun.There was loads of different activities and everyone tried their best.All the teams where really supportive  to each other and encouraged them by cheering them on and helping them if they weren’t sure how to do some of the activities.We had some juicy oranges after five events, then we got back to trying our best for our house.

I really enjoyed sports day this year because we were the leaders of our teams.I made the most of this sports day and enjoyed it as much as i could since it was my last one.:)

Ross High Visit

The Ross High visit was amazing and not something to forget. How did you feel? I felt scared  it was realy tense and I think everyone else was too . My favourite class was chemistry because it was fun. I made a glass of yellow stuff when I mixed  chemicals.My favourite class was music because my group got to test the keyboards. It was great fun. I felt quite sad i had to leave but excited to go back. I felt great but quite sad to be leaving but still I am happy to be going next term. Sean,Ruari

Ross High Experience!

On Wedensday the 9th and Thursday the 10th last week, Primary 7 took a two day visit  up to Ross High  to see what it was like because as you know, some of my classmates and I will be moving up to Ross High after the summer holidays.Another reason that we went up for these two days was to calm our nerves down a little as we were all very nervous but we soon got used to it and I often thought to myself that every body was going through the same proggres as I was and that we all had to look out for each other. If you are nervous about going up to Ross High dont be as I can guarantee you, after a couple of days there you will love it and I have not even moved up yet and I am really looking forward even excited about going up. 

                            yours dearly Rachael Mcgoldrick.

I also really enjoyed my two day visit and am so excited that after the holidays I will get to go up there! I know that I will miss St Martin’s a LOT and will be sad when the day comes  when I have to leave. The night before I went for my two day visit I packed my school bag and thought about what my visit would be like. I was a bit nervous but also very excited. I thought what it would be like to actually go to high school. When I arrived at Ross High I gasped. it was so big! It looked ten times bigger than my primary school. Although I was so happy and excited that I couldn’t wait to get in there, I was also super frightened in case I got lost or didn’t know anyone in my classes! But when I got in the main hall, that wasn’t the case. I knew a lot of people there! As well as people I knew from my class at school, I also knew people from my dance class and other after-school activities. I really enjoyed the subjects there, as well as the tasty lunch I had! The days I spent there were really enjoyable and I can’t wait to go after the summer!   Emily

Ross High Experience

Well I was feeling very scared at first but it was getting better. I was meeting more people that Ididn’t know at first but I got on really well with them. I was thinking how hard the work was going to be but actually it was easy. We had different subjects like maths,English,p.e,art,music, french and I.c.t . My favourite experiences was when we had break time and lunch time. The food was amazing especially at snack time you got burgers,bacon rolls and paninis. Lunch time was the same.Another one of my favourite experiences was when we were playing dodgeball.After the visit Iwas felling very confident I couldn’t wait. I was really happy that I made new friends.Ross High was amazing!!!!!!!!!

P7 Induction days at Ross High :)!!

My favourite subjects at the Ross High induction days were ICT , English and FDT. Before I went to Ross High I felt worried that I wouldnt know anyone in my classes , I felt scared incase the older ones pushed me about but the teachers were very helpful there and know how to deal with difficult situations. After the Ross High visits I felt like I was a real Ross High pupil and now I know what it feels like to be there ….. I cant wait to get away from St.Martins and move on to Ross High 🙂 ! By Kirsty !!:)Before I went to Ross High I was worried I wouldn’t know anyone in my classes and my old friends wouldn’t hang out with me any more, but when I got there I knew alot more people than I thought I would and I made some new friends!! My favourite subjects were art, English and maths. After I’d been to Ross High I wasalot less nervous and I can’t wait to go!!! 😎 By Katherine !!!

Ross High Visit

🙂 We loved our visit to Ross High. We are going to tell you our favourite thing about going up .

Kyle’s favourite thing at the visits was CDT , he got to make a key ring. It is red and bent into a cool shape. The first thing he done to make it was filed the edges of a plastic square, then he had to polish it and put it into the oven. After it was out the oven he got to bend it into a shape then he had to dip it in cold water so it would go hard again ..

Olivia’s favourite thing at the visits was ART ! … In art we had to make a backround .. I done a desert . Then on a seperate piece of paper we had to draw something that you could move across the paper .. I done a camel which goes with the desert theme ! I then had to take pictures of the camel moving accross the desert themed backround and when you put it all together it looks just like a camel is moving accross a desert .. You can’t even tell that i was moving it ! 🙂

Kelsie’s favourite thing at the visit was English. In English she done poems and the poem she done was called the Marrog. We had to read it and then try and draw it and see if anyone had a picture that looked similar. She really liked her teacher, her name was Miss Aitkens !
