Looking for ideas to re-design our courtyard into a green space. If you’re a local landscaper, business or in the community and you’d be interested in helping us develop this space or you have ideas as to how this space could be designed, please contact the school #communityhelp #pleaforgreenfingers

Our S6 Jasmine Group have raised a fantastic £5100 this year. Half of this money will go to Archie’s Children’s Hospital in Aberdeen and the other half to our school fund.

Thanks you to everyone who has supported their events. The young people in Jasmine have learned wide ranging invaluable skills from the event organisation, budgeting, time management, networking, involved in such projects. A great opportunity to build skills that they will use in the future. Well done to you all 👏👏👏

Today our Mentors in Violence Prevention were given their new badges after a successful year peer educating our younger pupils on issues such as bullying and body shaming. The badge will help pupils identify their mentors so that they can approach them for any advice on issues that may arise.

The Mentors in Violence Prevention Programme (MVP) is an approach to gender violence and bullying prevention that was designed to train students to speak out against rape, dating violence, sexual harassment, bullying and all forms of violent and abusive behaviour, MVP focuses on an innovative 'bystander' approach that empowers each student to take an active role in promoting a positive school climate. Within the MVP Programme young people are identified not as victims or perpetrators but as empowered bystanders able to support and even challenge abusive and bullying peers. Young people are provided with a range of safe options which can prevent situations from escalating.

We look forward to training many more mentors and increasing the number of pupils that we reach during next academic year.
