Business and Languages Festival 2016
On Friday, Mrs Barty accompanied 7 pupils to the 2016 Business and Languages Festival at Dundee University. Pupils were given a local business and asked to develop a digital advertisement in a given language – French. This was then presented to all attendees along with university and council staff. Unfortunately, we were not winners this year but our young people were an absolute credit to the school. Their effort, attitude, teamwork and behaviour were exemplary. Well done to Abbie Bruce, Kayla Robson, Taylor Forbes, Julia Dziegielewska, Laura Johnston, Tia Wilson and Rachael Adam.
Prize Givings 2016
Arrangements for both Prize givings are well in hand. The Junior Prize Giving takes place on Thursday 30th June at 7.00pm in our school hall and all staff are warmly invited to attend. Could staff who are coming to the Junior Prize Giving please let Mr Mulholland know for support and catering purposes.
As everyone knows the senior Prize Giving takes place on Friday 1stJuly beginning at 10.00am and details of that day including timings between 8.50am and 10.00am will be provided early next week. The senior Prize Giving is an excellent way to finish the session and I would like to thank Mr Mulholland and the Prize Giving Committee for all of their on-going work. A list of all prize winners for both events will be placed on the pupil notice boards (and emailed to Principal Teachers early next week).
A letter inviting parents to one or both Prize Giving events has been sent home with pupils. This letter also contains information about SQA results for pupils in the senior phase and advice about school uniform. A copy of this letter has also been emailed to staff for information.
Prize Giving rehearsals will take place next week with details to follow.

Chief Invigilator Mr Stephen Matthews
Mr Stephen Matthews has made the decision to retire as our chief invigilator. He has held this post for more than 32 years and as intimated above has worked well with our pupils and all staff. We thanked him on Friday for all his hard work and commitment over the past 32 years and presented him with a small token of our appreciation. We hope he has a long and relaxing retirement.
We would just like to say a massive thank you to all the staff and students who helped to make the Sports Days a great success. They would not have been possible without your support. The overall champions will be recognised at prize giving.
U15s Girls Football
Congratulations to both the Morgan A and Morgan B Under-15 girls’ teams, who took part last week in the Dundee U15 finals at a sunny DISC.
Morgan B performed well and achieved Bronze medals in the Plate final. Thanks especially to Kacey Ledger who had come along to spectate and ended up donning a strip, and playing in her school shoes, to complete the team. Thanks also to Louise Hay who volunteered to play in goal all evening, despite being one of our best outfield players.
Morgan A won an exciting semi-final against Harris 4-3, with some superb goals from Ellie Farquhar 3C2. They then went on to be narrowly defeated by Monifieth in the Cup final, earning second place in all of Dundee (or first, if you consider Monifieth as Angus) and earning silver medals.
Well done to all of the girls involved. Once again the girls conducted themselves impeccably and showed a great team spirit. Thanks to all those who came to support and enjoyed a sunny evening sunbathing and spectating on the hill. Thanks again to Mrs Haddow for coaching the girls throughout this session and organising games for them.
U14s Boys Football
Last Thursday was a great night for Morgan Academy as the U14s won their Dundee Schools League title! The league playoff took place at Whitton Park last night in front of a large crowd and they were there to witness a wonderful game of football. For those lucky enough to have been at Dens for the Cup final between Morgan and Grove, this topped even that! Morgan went in 2-0 down at half-time but some inspirational words from Brandon, Andrew, Mr Griffin and Mr Haddow lifted the boys to a dramatic 4-3 win with a last minute goal from Jack Whyte who injured himself in the process. The crowd went wild at the final whistle with a pitch invasion (although the behaviour was much better than at the Scottish Cup final in May…)
All the other schools and spectators were quick to sing our praises as the boys put on a magnificent display to win the league, something they very much deserve after a great year.
On behalf of Mr Griffin and Mr Haddow and the school in general we would like to thank Brandon McLeod and Andrew Creegan for their efforts in managing this side for two years. The hard work and commitment they have shown has been outstanding and I am sure that as a staff we can’t think of two more worthy winners than Brandon and Andrew. We would hope that other seniors watching this victory may want to help with teams next session emulating this victory.
Once again, well done to the players, they were a credit to this school and thoroughly deserved their prize. This is the FIRST EVER U14s title for the school in its entire history!
Make sure if you see any of the following players in the school throughout this that you give them a big well done – Adam Cameron, Jamie Cameron, Matthew Archibald, Evan Adam, Kai Guild, Arron Guild, Aidan Simpson, Kane Hynes, Robbie Johnson, Ryan smith, Jack Whyte, David MacDonald, Peter Burke and Derryn Thomson.
