Rememberance Day

Pupils across Moffat Academy, Nursery, Primary and Secondary were encouraged to decorate a stone to mark Remembrance Day 2020. Our installation this year was a large stone poppy, placed outside the school. 

We will remember them.

Christmas Virtual Concert 2020

On December 17th, Mrs Crossan arranged a Christmas Virtual Concert event with a mixture of in-school performances and musical pieces sent in from home. Thank you to all contributors showcasing their fantastic talents and Mrs Crossan for arranging the event.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

For Anti-Bullying week we celebrated the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and created new boards in the school. Seniors held discussions to come up with what we do in the school already to support the UNCRC.

Odd Sock Day 

For Anti-Bullying Week, we invited all pupils and staff to wear odd socks to school on Friday the 20th of November to encourage us to embrace and celebrate differences between us.

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Children's educations should help them fully develop their personalities, talents and abilities. It should teach them to understand their own rights, and to respect other people's rights, cultures and differences. It should help them to live peacefully and protect the environment.
