TWISTER FEVER TAKES OVER EARLSTON HIGH SCHOOL!
On Thursday the 10th of September 96 pupils filed into one hall all for one mammoth twister-a-thon! Senior pupil house captains organised this house event to encourage the school to come together and have some fun while gaining house point after house point- even teachers got involved in the day’s festivities.
A quote from a senior pupil says, “It was amazing to see a nice equal spread of all year groups taking part and having fun together at one event. Hopefully the event will continue in future years!” Overall, the house captains have been praised for their innovative and exciting event which was met with such a successful turnout- well done to everyone involved!
WINNING HOUSE ANNOUNCED FOR 2015/16
STUDENTS GO "CHECKERS" FOR CHESS
Earlston High School Students took part in an Inter-House Chess Competition last Thursday. The students filled the hall eager to take to the board.
From all five Houses, they battled it out making moves and take overs which were far beyond their years. The feeling in the hall was electric as more and more people were eliminated and even when the final lunch bell sounded, the players were still on the edge of their seats eager to win the game.
Despite the competitive atmosphere, everyone walked away in good spirits and having made new chess "mates".
