Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

Congratulations to Andrew McFarlane 5L1 on winning Silver in the Pole Vault competition at the Scottish Competition last weekend.  He jumped 4.35m in the 19+ category so very well done.  This week we wish him luck as he takes part in the U20 combined event and the week after he is taking part in the Scottish Schools competition. We wish him well in these competitions and all whilst in the middle of prelims.

 

Health Announcement

Head Lice are a common problem in school aged children.  They can’t be prevented, but regular checking ensures early detection and treatment if necessary.  Parents and carers should check their children’s head once a week during their washing.  You need your usual shampoo, conditioner, and a detection comb – ask your local pharmacist to recommend a suitable one.  Remember that you are looking for living moving lice, the only evidence that your child is infected.

If you find a living louse, ask your local pharmacist, school nurse, health visitor of GP for advice regarding treatment.

Woodwind Group visit Kinmylies

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

On Friday the 15th of December the Charleston Academy Woodwind Group, led by Woodwind Instructor Mrs Aalders and accompanied by Mr Fairfield, braved the icy conditions to visit Kinmylies Primary School.  While there the group performed various pieces of Christmas music including a selection of music from The Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky and The Snowman by Howard Blake.  This was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to visit the wider community and encourage the younger primary pupils in the pursuit of music with a festive feel.
