Revision and Mocks
Year 11 are busy preparing for their Mocks starting the week of 26th of November. All students have received their timetables and parents have been emailed these along with a revision session timetable. It is great to see so many students everyday after school in S1 and working with subject staff across school. We have also attached the vocabulary guide below and students have been given a hard copy today. If there are any questions or concerns from parents and students please do not hesitate to get in touch. Wishing everyone the best of luck!
Please also feel free to follow me on Twitter for more updates and photos on @MrsBerrill.

End of Term
I can't believe how quickly we have come to the end of Term 1, our last first term for Year 11. Everyone has made such a strong start to the year and is working so hard! Rest up over the half term as Mocks will be at the end of next term! I look forward to seeing parents and students at the parent consultation evening on the 1st of November 430-730.
Have a wonderful half term break!

Weekly Round Up!
It has been a busy week at DGS! The Year 11 Prom has been booked for Milton Hill House for the 11th of July and tickets are available on parent pay for £30. The prom committee started fundraising at the House Opening Ceremony and raised £200!
It was a beautiful day for the House Opening Ceremony and I enjoyed my time as HOY 11 and Head of Bussell House! Well done for everyone's amazing house spirit! Go Bussell!
We welcomed the RAF by helicopter for the Female Inspire Programme and the House Captain team was on hand to take part.
Then we celebrated World Mental Health Day as the Community Prefects teamed up with the School Health Nurse to encourage students to make pledges to look after their own and others mental health because if you have a brain, you have mental health!

Miss Nichols sent me this picture of her 11 class (11X) when they conducted a range of pink pen activities to support their development from their mock. Here is an example of a model answer, which the girls underlined to show the 'best' geography phrases, which they then used to write perfect 6/6 answers.
Well done, keep up the great work!
