There was a real festive feel around the school last week as pupils from all year groups enjoyed the annual Christmas disco. Members of the sixth year transformed the dining room and house block into a bright and colourful venue, with decorations draped to produce a wonderful atmosphere. Everyone had a great night as they danced to popular Christmas classics. Thursday was also the day of the annual Christmas lunch in the dining rooms. The catering staff served a wonderful traditional turkey or steak pie lunch in the Xmas Meal Deal Special. Thanks to catering manager, Danny Muir and his staff for providing the delicious festive feast.

Craigneuk started off in a strong position defending well in the opening minutes before Pele? went to header the ball out of the park but instead put it towards goal and McMilan had to make a acrobatic save to avoid losing an early goal. A through ball from the midfield to McKnight was hit to hard for him to get on the end of. A save from McMilan fell to Moon who tried to pass the ball back to the grounded McMilan who could only knock it onto the bar. A long shot from Glasgow Uni hit the bar and fell to Murray who played the ball to Moon to knock the ball to safety.
