In-Service Day 27th May
Just a reminder that this Friday is an In-service day to all staff and a holiday to pupils. The In-service day programme was distributed last week to all staff. Monday 30th May is a holiday to all.
S3 Treat Trip
The S3 Treat Trip last week was a huge success, the weather stayed fine all day, the pupils were very well behaved and were a credit to the school. A big thank you to all the staff who helped out on the day, to the catering staff who provided the food and to the office staff for their administration work, without which, the trip could not have gone ahead. Congratulations to Cortachy on an impressive victory in the House Rounders competition and to Airlie for a narrow win in the House Ultimate Frisbee match. Better luck next time Mains.
The following S1 pupils earned a silver medal in the Dundee Schools Cricket Festival held at Forthill Sports Club.
Ali Anwaar 1AA, Uwais Asghar 1M2, Awais Ahmed 1C1, Faisal Ali 1A2, Thomas Brannan 1M2, Huzaifa Ejaz 1AA, Jawad Khurshid 1A1, Abdul Khan 1M2, Zayaan Mehmood 1A1
Our team’s behaviour and conduct was of the highest standard, a real credit to Morgan Academy.
A special mention for Thomas Brennan who did exceptionally well as our wicket keeper, Faisal Ali for some fantastic batting stokes and Huzaifa Ejaz for bowling with pace and accuracy all day.
Laura Adam and her band of merry helpers were meeting, greeting and serving members of the community on Saturday. It was our ‘Tea on the Terrace’ event which played a part of Stobfest which is the first festival to be held in and around Stobswell. There was tea/coffee and cakes available along with Morgan Academy memorabilia on sale. Although the sales were excellent there are a number of cakes available in the staffroom for people to purchase. So far we raised £96 and all proceeds will go to next session’s Rock Challenge. Particular thanks go to Laura for organising the event, supported by Fiona Low and thank you to all the pupils below for giving up their time on Saturday morning.
Robyn Leigh Airlie
On Wednesday afternoon Conor Bruce 1CC,Aron Guild 2M2,Keiton Strachan 2M2,Ali Bhatti 2M1and Artur Zmuda 2C2 all took part in a Schools rugby 10s competition in Montrose. They were linked together with other Dundee schools through the Dundee rugby programme and played exceptionally well in their group, winning all the games and playing some great rugby. They played Carnoustie High School in the final and were unlucky to lose in a very competitive game. Well done to all the Morgan boys involved.
Dundee Active Schools 2016
Last Saturday was the annual awards ceremony where we were lucky to have 4 nominees from Morgan Academy in attendance. Congratulations to Stewart Haddow who won the ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award. This was particularly satisfying for Stewart as he was up against Sarah Haddow.
Congratulations to Sarah and also to Ross Pellow 6M2 and Grant Collier 5M2 who were nominated and attended the event.
