Interhouse – Uniform Points!

This week we will introduce our first uniform competition between our tutor groups. Tutor teachers will add up the number of pupils wearing uniform which will be collated to award 1st-4th place for individual groups and then 1st – 4th for House groups.  Pupils should aim to wear a white shirt, school tie, plain black jersey or cardigan, black trousers/skirt with black or brown shoes/trainers.  We appreciate your support with this – may the best house win!


Scotmid masks – If pupils are visiting the local Scotmid store, can they please wear their face mask the whole time they are in store.  Masks should not be lowered whilst in store and should cover the mouth and nose at all times.

New House Logos

Work has been taking place to redesign our House Logos.  This work started in 2020 at the request of the Pupil Council.  You will see below our old and new logos.  You will notice that the new logos are based on buildings in our local area – Drumtochty Castle, Thornton Castle, Mill of Conveth & Johnston Tower.
