The day was co-ordinated and organised by Mr McCallan and the rest of the maths department.

Talking about things that are difficult to talk about
As you are probably aware, this week has been a difficult time for many people due to the terror attack in Manchester after the Ariana Grande concert. The senseless act of violence carried out, taking innocent lives and causing pain and grief for many more.
It is hard enough as adults to make sense of why this would happen. In school this week we have done some work with our pupils around the event and wider issues associated with it.
