Young People's Sport Panel

As you may have noted in last weeks Campbeltown Courier, applications for the Young People's Sport Panel are now open. The sport panel was formed through a partnership between sportscotland and Young Scot, and aims to influence and shape the future of sport in Scotland and raise the profile of sport.

Applications are open for young people between the ages of 14 and 25, and close on the 7th of February. Further information can be found here:

This is a wonderful opportunity which is open to older students within school and to former pupils, both still at home and those further afield. If you want a more personal viewpoint from a local perspective, check out the following link to Kintyre Forum(;t=16529) or if you require contact details for further advice, please see Mrs L Millar.

Homework Survey

We are currently reviewing the school's homework policy and in order to get the views of as many pupils and parents as possible on the effectiveness of our current homework procedures we are conducting a survey which has been put together under the leadership of Miss McLaughlin with the help of the Students' Council. 

We would be very grateful if you would support us by taking some time to complete the survey by clicking the following link:

The deadline for responses is Friday 31st January.   After that we will publish the results and begin to reformulate our policy on homework.

Renewable Energy Survey

All S5/6 pupils are asked to complete this short survey. Time will be available in tutor groups and it would also be appreciated if you complete it in your own time instead.

Technology IDT Prizewinners

judges and winning team

Congratulations everyone! You are all winners in a way and it is also a pity you couldn't all be there when the products were judged as there were so many excellent comments made about your work. Your maturity when chatting to the judges was noted and they also were impressed with the enthusiasm you showed when discussing your products.
