Event leaves pupils with decisions to make!

Pupils in the Senior Years are weighing up some tough choices – which co-curricular activities to sign up to for the new school year! 

The High School of Dundee's Co-curricular Fair

The School recently held its Co-curricular Fair which showcased the huge range of exciting activities which pupils in F1-F6 can get stuck into outside of their timetabled lessons.

The annual event usually takes place under one roof in a Freshers-fair-style format.  

However, to ensure safety for this year’s Fair, it was held online, in classrooms and in Trinity Hall with demonstrations and information on offer from staff and pupil-led clubs and societies ranging from fencing, art club, model boat building and debating, to computer games development, the Q+ club, climbing and Interact. Not to mention a whole host of sports and music opportunities.        

David Brett, Deputy Head (Co-curriculum/Head of Logistics), said, “It was great to be able to give the pupils the opportunity to get a flavour of all the activities which, thanks to the goodwill and expertise of staff, and indeed some pupils, operate across the Senior Years. 

“At any one time we have between 80 and 100 co-curricular activities running across the Junior and Senior Years, and we’ve been working very hard to keep as many of these going as possible over the past 18 months.  

“Our aim is to provide our pupils with the opportunity to follow their interests, passions and talents, and maybe discover some new ones too.”
