We welcomed representatives from the SRU and Glasgow Warriors to school yesterday for a special award ceremony. Our teams were so successful this year that they were positioned top in the Mitsubishi Motors & Youth Barbarian Conference. Below is a copy of the letter we received and images of the Captain receiving the award and the teams celebrating. We are so proud of our School of Rugby here at Marr and well done to all players, coaches, staff and pupils who supported our teams. #DrivingTheGame @Scotlandteam @MitsubishiUK

As well as excellent powerpoint presentations to the class, students have been creative in selecting new and interesting ways to present their knowledge. Here is a selection of work on the Battle, including: a trench cake, a model trench, a 3D lego poster, cupcake battle, a poem from the trenches, and poppy cakes complete with fact flags.

We are also delighted to secure the support of local expert Bob Reid, who is with us every Friday at Marr and is providing fantastic hints and tips to develop our young people’s skills.

Celebrating Scottish Book Week
Last week was Book Week Scotland and some of our S2 pupils joined in the celebrations. The theme this year was 'nourish' and our librarian, Miss Owens, asked pupils to share information about a book that means a lot to them, a book that has nourished them over time. Below you can read a selection of their responses, you might even get an idea for a present for Christmas! They then had some fun re-creating book titles with a food theme. Continue reading for a giggle at some of these.
