The exhibition of Class 8 projects is always highly anticipated. It is the culmination of a year's worth of focused study by pupils on an area of individual interest.

The projects are diverse. Some reflect long-standing areas of interest, others offer a chance to develop a new skill or knowledge. 

This year they ranged from studying the physics of a magnetic levitation train to creating beautiful models of the Platonic solids.

Play is an essential part of every child’s life. It is vital for the enjoyment of childhood as well as for social, emotional, intellectual and physical development. Since Scottish schools will be on holiday in August when national Play Day is held, Play Scotland suggested celebrating it on June 21st, the longest day of the year. The idea is to encourage children to get outdoors and get active.
