Les Hoey MBE Christmas Party

On Sunday 2nd December a group of S6 pupils from Hamilton Grammar School attended the Les Hoey MBE Christmas party. This is continuing our partnership with the charity and the group of young people who attended are part of the group steering our fundraising. 

The volunteers had a fantastic day as Santa’s helpers enjoying playing games and dancing with the children in attendance. This was a wonderful experience and made everyone feel that they were making a difference to the children and their families. It also gave them the opportunity to see our fundraising put to good use. 

Well done to all those involved.

National Remembrance Event

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.

Les Hoey MBE Dreammaker Foundation

As part of our ongoing commitment to helping our community, Hamilton Grammar School is delighted to announce a partnership with Les Hoey MBE Dreammaker Foundation.

Over the coming years we will work closely with this local charity to raise funds and provide volunteers to fulfil the dreams of children with life-limiting conditions.

On Friday 26th October we held a launch event in the school which was attended by representatives of the charity and invited guests. This event was huge success and gave our S6 and S3 volunteers the opportunity to discuss our plans for the future.

Look out of fundraising events taking place through the year!

 

Eco Flag Success

This is the school’s 7th Green Flag award which is a first for secondary schools in South Lanarkshire Council and only one of four secondary schools in the whole of Scotland to reach this achievement.

The award would not be possible without the hard work of the Eco Club, Community Committee and our parent partners as well as the continued effort of the pupils and staff.

Well done to everyone involved!
