Schools Writing Competition

 The firm of Innes & Mackay Solicitors was founded in 1874, making them one of the longest established legal firms in the Highlands. In continuation of their 140th Anniversary Celebrations they have decided to hold a writing competition which will award the winning student a voucher for £100, and the winning School a cash prize of £500.

To qualify for the competition, students will require to submit a short story of around five hundred words which must include the number ‘1874’, to link in the year they were established. The story itself can be of any genre or format that the individual student wishes.

If you wish to participate in the competition, submit your short story to your English teacher and the top 5 stories will be forwarded on to Innes and Mackay by the closing date of 15th January 2016 for their selection process. The winner will then be announced on the 29th of January 2016, with the winning story being displayed in our reception area and also on our website.

Boxing Initiative Awareness Day

Well done to Ronan, Reece and Darrell who were impressive in showing how well they can work together at the awareness day today.

The Millburn Group have made outstanding progress in the main, with excellent commitment and effort – well done to all.  They have been working on self esteem, confidence, self regulation and aspects of leadership through a non-contact boxing context.  Great programme – our thanks to PC Alan MacLennan and coach Liam Foy from the Highland Boxing Academy.

Next steps – looking for some sponsorship to continue and perhaps grow involvement – any ideas?

They competed in 4 rounds consisting of a practical round, team round, stations round and finally a relay round. Of the 58 teams which competed from across Scotland the Millburn pupils finished 3rd. Congratulations to everyone involved.


Skills For Work

Miss Robertson’s Skills for Work Engineering class have started Bike Maintenance. A bike mechanic, Peter, visited the class to give them demos and information and then let the pupils do hands on work. Velocity Bikes come to the school once a week to show and teach the class about bikes. Last week’s session was on brakes. The aim is for the class to maintain a small fleet of bikes owned by the school.


Engineering Science S3

Millburn’s Engineering Science S3 pupils are heading to the Teen Tech Awards in a few weeks’ time. Having won and been a finalist in recent years the Millburn team is hoping for success again this year.
