On Sunday 11th November 2018 six of our senior pupils were accompanied by Miss Shevlin and Miss Mavor to the National Centenary Service Commemorating the First Armistice at Glasgow Cathedral.

Our pupils were selected to meet with politicians who also attended the Remembrance event. They met influential politicians such as Nicola Sturgeon, Fiona Hyslop, Annabelle Goldie, and the Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh. Our pupils also met Princess Anne and her husband Timothy Laurence and they showcased their knowledge about what they had learned about WW1 in National 5 History.

They were delighted to meet First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who also attended the Remembrance event. The girls told her about the WW1 Remembrance Event we hosted in the Front Hall on Friday 9th November. Both the girls and Nicola discussed why it was so important to learn about the Great War and the impact it has had on our society today.
