STEM Club

STEM Club is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths club. We are doing the First Lego League for Hydro Dynamics pupils can join any time but there is a competition and if we win the competition we go onto another competition and if we win that competition we get the chance to go to America. We have already made the lego pieces and set up the mat and today we planned  what our robot is going to look like so it can do as it is told. As an example for one of the missions we have to do. So the example that I’m going to tell you is the rain cloud what you have to do is you have to get your robot to push a lever and make at least one rain fall.

Badminton

On the 5th of October AFTER SCHOOL is the p6/7 badminton competition at Dunblane high school if your child IS doing this they should have already given in a form of permission. If your child is competing in this compition what will be happening is your child will be against various people depending on how much wins they get. If your child gets into the quarter finals they just need to get to the semis. If your child gets into the semi finals if they win your child will get into the finals if they DONT win they will face the other loser challenging for the place of third. If your child gets into the finals your child will be playing for the place of second or first.
