The Purple Performers present at ‘Tea and Blether’ event for Dementia Awareness Week

 After a year in the making S3 Drama Group – The Purple Performers – shared their poignant movement scene to an audience at the Alzheimer’s Resource Centre in Inverness on Tuesday 30 May.

Dementia PicThere was not a dry eye in the house after the girls performed their devised story of a woman living with dementia whose memories are triggered by familiar music from her past.  Since becoming Dementia Friends last year the pupils have spent time researching, experimenting and creating different scenes and characters before deciding that the short movement piece had the most impact and created the right atmosphere.  The S3 pupils met Walter Grant (pictured with the performers), who attends the Football Memories group and contributes to the Highland Dementia Working Group, in April when he came to watch a dress rehearsal at Millburn Academy.  Talking about the project he said: “I am proud of them – they all did very well.”  Mrs Mackenzie and Gillian Councill (Dementia Advisor) run the group weekly and feel the girls’ hard work paid off on Tuesday as each pupil rose to the challenge and delivered an emotional and captivating drama.

The group’s next meeting will be on Friday 2 June when they are holding a Bake Sale at break time to raise more awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s Scotland.

Well done indeed!

Millburn Academy YPI Charities Fayre – community involvement sought

For a number of years Millburn Academy has taken part in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI), an international initiative which helps young people to develop a greater understanding of their community.  The YPI programme explores the work of local charities and the nature of philanthropy.  This year S3 English classes will be involved in the programme at the start of the 2017/18 session, effectively for part of June until early September.

The YPI programme will be delivered during English lessons where the emphasis will be on developing skills in communication, team working, research, analysis and presentation, key skills within the English curriculum.  A team from each English class will go forward to the Final which will be held in school in September with the team judged to have made the most compelling presentation being given a £3000 YPI grant which they will present to their chosen charity.

We are inviting charities into school to take part in a Charities Fayre from 12.30 – 15.30 on Mon 21st August 2017 in order to raise awareness of the charities and the valuable work that they carry out in the community.  Pupils will have the opportunity to meet with charity representatives and to make informed choices when making the decision which charity to research further.

If you are involved with a charity it may be that the charity would like send a representative to the Charities Fayre.  For further details please contact Miss Sinclair, Depute Rector on 01463 729152 or by email: kerry.sinclair@highland.gov.uk by Fri 16 June 2017.

It may be that sending a representative from the charity may not be possible, in which case, you may wish to send some information to the school and we will be delighted to display the material on the day.Council
