Auditions for the Edinburgh Schools’ Production of ‘ A Midsummer Night’s Dream’
Over 30 pupils from S1-S3 auditioned and he thought they were all outstanding. We received this message from the director:
” I was genuinely impressed with the standard of all of you and dearly wish there were enough roles to cast you all. Everyone who auditioned is part of a special bunch within your school.”
Congratulations to the following 7 pupils who were selected, after much deliberation, as the cast for ‘ The Royal High School’ section of the play.
We are looking forward to seeing them in the two performances at ‘ The Kings’ Theatre at the end of June.
“On Wednesday evening the Royal High School debating society had a full night with three teams in action in two different locations. Two teams competed successfully in the procurator fiscal competition against two of Mary Erskine’s finest despite coming first and second in the competition only one of the Royal High teams could progress. However all four girls that competed did so for the first time they are: Jura Lewis (first place), Emma Shopland ( first place), Katie Kirstuck (second place) and Rae Ashcroft (second place).
The S4 team of Emma Walker and Angus Walker-Stewart unfortunately did not progress in the ESU second round Mace competition losing out to some extremely experienced competition from Portobello and Craigmount high school but none the less made sure that the Royal High School was very well represented!”
See Me Launch
In PSE this week we are going to be launching the ‘See Me’ campaign to all year groups. ‘See Me’ is Scotland’s national programme to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination. 120 staff/pupils in the school will be given ‘See Me’ pin badges this week which they will be asked to wear in school and in the community to raise awareness of mental health and also to show support in the campaign to end mental health stigma and discrimination.
To keep the campaign ‘live’ the badges will be passed on amongst staff/ pupils every fortnight to help spread the message of the campaign across our whole school community.
The ‘See Me’ campaign sits within UNCRC Article 2 – You have the right to protection against discrimination. More information on the ‘See Me’ campaign can be found at https://www.seemescotland.org/about-see-me/
