All the team have worked extremely hard to learn the information which covers a diverse range of topics about Europe since winning the heats in Stirling earlier this year. They were representing Stirling Council. Thank you to Mrs McCormick for all her hard work training up the team throughout the year.

Togetherall is a digital mental health and wellbeing support service which is available online, 24/7.

The online courses and resources for self-management include evidence-based courses. These courses are designed to help people manage to variety of mental health difficulties and improve their health and wellbeing at a pace which suits them.

Strathblane Primary School has been on the current site since the mid sixties. The building is set in beautiful countryside with easy access to the natural world for environmental studies projects. Pupils enjoy spacious accommodation with classrooms, general purpose room, and hall with stage and P.E. facilities, separate dining area and a computer suite. Outdoors there are generous playing areas, both hard and grassed. The Parent Council and local businesses have been very supportive in helping to raise funds to improve the school grounds. Parents, friends and the school’s pupil leadership groups have planted trees, shrubs, bulbs and other plants to enhance the environment. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard and at least two PCs available for the curricular use.
More information is available in our handbook.
