2 All Classes: Eco Tip of the Month: Water

Some people think that because we live in rainy Scotland that we don’t need to worry about water wastage. We don’t just use water for drinking. We wash in it, clean with it, and use it to produce everything from clothing to food. Crop production – including feed for livestock and biofuels – is putting a great strain on fresh water supplies. Individually, we use approximately 150 litres of water a day and it takes lots of energy to clean our water for use. Please try to turn off the tap when cleaning teeth, only boil what you need and take shorter showers. Thank you, from Currieco.

On Wednesday; 1 May Canon Medical Research Europe, based in Leith, is holding a site visit for S1 to S3 students, to get a taster of what a career in software development could look like. You can get an insight into the work they do, experience hands on, practical demonstrations, hear from current staff about their roles and pathways into their career. If you are interested see Mr Schmidt, in Business Education, ASAP as places are limited.

6 S3 and S4 – Edinburgh Schools’ Adventure Race – Friday 14th June

Do you fancy racing against other Edinburgh schools to try to win the Edinburgh Schools’ Adventure Race?  You will aim to complete adventurous challenges located at specific points across the city; these include biking, climbing, team-building, orienteering, water-sports… There will be questions to answer, and you have the option to climb Edinburgh’s Seven Hills. Tactical route-planning, problem-solving and communication will be essential to success!

We need four students currently in S3 or S4 to represent Currie on Friday 14th June, from 8:30 am to 3:45 pm. Can we beat last year’s winners, Boroughmuir?

If you’re up for the challenge, see Mrs Godfree to put your name down for the Currie Team!
