Hamilton Grammar this week proved that they have some ‘Mathemagicians’ in their school. Third year pupils Robbie Bremner & Fraser King and 4th year pupils Alasdair Holmes & Ian Page produced a top then finish in the National Final of the ‘Enterprising Mathematics’ competition which took place at the Science Centre on Tuesday 15th November. 64 Schools took part from all of Scotland and the team from Hamilton Grammar produced the highest placed finish from a team from Lanarkshire.
This year we are celebrating Day of the Dead – Día de Muertos!
Throughout the day staff across the school will be delivering Day of the Dead themed activities, pupils will be invited to dress up in theme with prizes for the best costumes and proceeds being donated to local charities.
The canteen has arranged for a special, one off menu which is advertised around the school and anyone purchasing items from the canteen on the day will be entered into a free prize raffle.
Photos will be available after the event on November 2nd.

Over recent months some of our pupils have been participating in both the ‘South Lanarkshire Schools Swimming Championships’ and the ‘Scottish Schools Swimming Championships’. A total of 11 pupils attended the regional meet at Larkhall Leisure Centre and returned with an incredible haul with over fifteen medals, including six golds. From these impressive results a number of our pupils met the qualifying times for the National Championships in Tollcross, Glasgow. Abbie Mitchell, Sophie Newburry, Jenna Gilmore and Ewan McMurray put in some creditable performances against some of the countries toughest opposition. Ewan and Jenna also managed to achieve some top ten finishes at this well attended event.
A huge congratulations to all athletes who try and juggle the demands of school life and studying with a rigorously hard training schedule. These young people can be up at 5am some mornings and have completed a session before some of us even leave our bed. These results are also not possible without the hard work of their parents and local clubs who provide the support needed to compete at such a high level.
