On Thursday the 16th of February, Carluke High School hosted their annual “Burns’ Supper” to celebrate the birth of the admired Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Mrs McDonald, who organised the event said: “It is a great way to embrace Scottish culture in our school”.
Guests such as Provost Eileen Logan, Rev Ian Cunningham, Kathleen Feeney - Development Manager at Carluke Development Trust, Aileen Campbell MSP and many more attended the event to join in with the celebration.
Students and teachers honoured the poet by devouring traditional Scottish cuisine such as haggis, neeps and tatties whilst accessorising with plenty of tartan. The audience enjoyed a splendid performance from S6 violinist Sean Allan who stunned the crowd with a series of traditional Scottish music. Carluke High Band ‘Upside Axis’ also performed an array of songs by Scottish artists such as Biffy Clyro and The Corries. Mr Anderson addressed the haggis and Mr Murray gave an amazing performance of "Tam O Shanter".

As part of our Raising Attainment policy, all S1 pupils have an electronic profile on GLOW where they can record achievements across their learning as well as achievements and successes in extra-curricular activities such as hobbies, clubs etc.
The electronic profile
The electronic profile works as a way of allowing pupils to record their achievements and their progress in their learning. They can write a description of what they have learned and they can upload photographs of work they have completed. The profile will continue throughout their Broad General Education from S1 through to the end of S3. At the end of S3 they will be presented with a certificate summarising their learning and achievements which also acts as a way of preparing them for the Senior Phase in S4.
It is a useful tool for pupils to help them reflect on their progress across learning and their achievements in and out of school.
How you can be involved
You can view the profile and encourage and support your child to regularly update it. During the focus month being launched on Monday 20th February, we would be grateful for your support as we promote its use across the school. You may wish to encourage your child to record their highlights of S1, what their achievements have been to date and reflect on their hopes and plans for S2.
