CO-CURRICULAR BOOKLET September 2013


“The curriculum is so much necessary raw material but warmth is the vital element for the growing soul of the child.” Carl Gustav Jung Morrison‟s Academy is a busy place both in and out of the classroom. Visitors often comment on the fact that relationships between pupils and staff are excellent. We believe that the multitude of after-school activities that we offer is a vital ingredient in fostering this atmosphere of mutual respect. Pupils are encouraged to try out new activities and find one or two that they enjoy: from art to athletics, from chess to climbing, from debating to the Duke of Edinburgh Award and from kayaking to karate – there is something for every pupil at Morrison‟s. We are very proud of the large numbers of pupils who take advantage of the opportunities we offer them in the areas of music, drama and sport as well as the smaller numbers of pupils who attend equally valuable clubs such as Debating and Chess. Valuable life skills such as working as part of a team, problem-solving and socialising are learned in a way no textbook could ever put across and life-long friendships are formed by pupils (sometimes in different year groups) through shared interests. We hope you will be impressed by what we have to offer and we hope that you will encourage your child to come along and get involved. The fun that is to be had from a co-curricular activity is likely to be remembered long after the facts painstakingly memorised for an exam have been forgotten! “For the great majority, their most profound learning experience takes place outside the classroom.” John Abbott

New members are always welcome and will soon learn to structure a speech and to identify the flaws in the arguments made by the other side. The competition training meeting puts its energies into training pupils for inter-school competitions. The pupils will be experienced debaters who are engaging in developing skills for unseen motions. This involves learning standard arguments, developing rebuttal techniques and improving the debatersâ€&#x; knowledge of current affairs. In the days leading up to a competition, pupils will be expected to train at lunchtime and after school. This represents a very considerable commitment to the society. The dates and timings of these other lunchtime and after-school meetings will be arranged with the speakers.

Karate Club (Tora Kai) Thursday 17:00-18.00

Gym

P1-S6 Parents & Staff

Ms H Bennett Mr Clifford

Shokatan Karate is by far the biggest single karate style in the world today. It can be practised safely by anyone regardless of age or fitness level. The practice of shokatan promotes total body fitness and also physical and moral strength. Above all it is a system of self-defence without equal. Tora-kai is a large organisation with clubs in many schools throughout Scotland. Towards the end of each term, in addition to the weekly training sessions, there will be a course and grading examination with the National coach. The Karate Club (which is affiliated to the Perth Tora-Kai Club) is open to all pupils, staff and parents. The club is organised by professional instructors and costs apply. Please contact Ms Hilary Bennett for further information or come along to the class. Kayaking Club Thursday 15:35-16:45

Pool

S1-S6

Mr Anderson

The Kayaking Club aims to introduce as many pupils as possible to the sport. During the early part of the academic year, while the weather is generally good, our more experienced paddlers are taken to Loch Earn or similar water to test their skills in the great outdoors. Each session we invite a new group of pupils to join the club. They are trained in the school swimming pool, learning the basic strokes and safety procedures. All will grow in confidence and attain greater control; some may learn to roll the boat. In the summer term, the pupils will be given the opportunity to put their skills into practice on real water, normally Loch Earn. During the year there may be opportunities to kayak a stretch of the River Tay. The only limitations to membership are the practical considerations of equipment and the size of the swimming pool.

Mountaineering and MTB Club Friday

All pupils

Mr Howell

This activity is open to pupils, staff and parents. This club aims to provide the following:  An introduction to mountaineering (basic – advanced).  Opportunities to gain national accreditation via the NICAS scheme.  NICAS club and advanced coaching on Friday nights, after 6pm.  Rock climbing using indoor walls, local crags and mountain crags.  Winter skills on at least two Sundays.  Mountain biking in the local area and Seven Stanes dependent upon demand (usually summer term). All activities are run and closely-supervised by qualified and experienced instructors/staff. Most Friday evenings from 16:00-19:00. Please check the Mountaineering noticeboard outside the PE office. Please note involvement in some activities will be age/size dependent. On Sundays during the summer and early autumn term hill walks and mountain biking outings are offered on an ad-hoc basis to pupils from Transitional to S6. The walks and rides offer the opportunity to explore the local mountains and valleys in a relaxed but informative way, providing pupils with an introduction to map reading and route-finding. They are an excellent introduction to the hills for pupils undertaking Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, as well as a good way to keep fit and healthy.

Mr McMillan Mrs Fraser

The Business Studies Department, together with advisers from industry, runs the Young Enterprise (Scotland) Scheme in school, whereby members of S6 form themselves into a company in order to sell products or services and hopefully make a profit and learn a life-skill or two; indeed some may even find their niches in life! “Achievers” are encouraged to learn from their mistakes and as the company develops, teachers and advisors should find themselves being used less and less by the company board which includes all the company members, together with six elected directors, namely the Managing Director (with a depute), the Company Secretary (with a depute) and the Finance Director (with a depute).

Under the supervision of Mrs Mowat, the Librarian, pupils can study or do homework, and use books or a PC for research purposes. A black and white printer is available if required. Of course pupils may also read books or newspapers in the library. We are gradually developing our stock of contemporary young adult fiction and non-fiction, and pupils can borrow these for a period of 3 weeks initially. Mrs Mowat always welcomes any suggestions for reading materials, and is happy to recommend books to anyone looking for a good read. For those who are keen readers, it is hoped that a Morrison‟s „book group‟ may be set up which will meet a couple of times each term. There is a Biennial Ski trip. (Mr Weston) An extensive range of inter-house activities runs throughout the session, details of which can be found on the termly calendar and on house notice-boards. If pupils are interested in participating, further details can be obtained from house officials.
