End of Term

As the end of term approaches, just a reminder that Readathon at Annan Academy finishes tomorrow – Monday 30th March. All those who took part should hand in their sponsor card and money to their Tutor teacher by Thursday 2nd April.

As always there was a fantastic response to the Blurbie competition. Tutor Groups will be able to vote for their Top Ten this week. You can see a preview of the Final Forty by clicking on the link below.

All S1-S3 pupils at Annan Academy have been signed up for Readathon.

Each pupil will receive a sponsor card, bookmark and a letter to take home which details what Readathon is all about.

You can find more information by clicking here to go to the official Readathon website.

Pupils set their own reading target and any kind of reading counts. The emphasis is on having FUN and raising money to help other children.

A limited number of sponsor cards are available for any S4- S6 pupils who would like to take part. See Mrs C Johnston in the English Department for details.

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 40,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 15 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
