During Fairtrade Fortnight, Some of the S1 Pupils got to help sell some of the goods that were available. Money raised will be announced in due course




S2 pupils were given the opportunity to have a look at this years choices for the Grampian book awards, and will hopefully get to go in May and see who the winner was!
