Year 9 Rugby
Strong performances from Kyle, Scott, Reuben and Kameron enabled them to score 10 tries in total. However, tiredness crept in and allowed Q3 Academy to also score 10, with the game finishing in a draw. They are hoping to change this result when the fixture is replayed.
Year 8 had an enjoyable and informative morning at the Whittington Barracks. They tried on WW1 uniforms, held rifles and other weapons, the day has undoubtedly helped the students understand their learning of WW1.
National Volleyball Championships
Our volleyball under 16s team came 3rd in the national competition and were only knocked out in the semi-final by the team who went on to win. The team have been asked to go to a national training camp in the summer.

Low Hill and Scotlands got Talent
On Saturday 29th March, Moreton was well represented at the Grand Final of Low Hill and Scotlands’ Got Talent.
Abigail (Year 10) and Charlee (Year 7) sang their hearts out in the secondary category and Mr Vann gave an incredible performance of his own song in the Adult category. Year 9 dancers Sherilee, Armarni, Danielle and Kayleigh also performed in the secondary category with a heart-felt contemporary performance. Lia (Year 7) impressed the judges and became runner-up in the secondary category with a stunning ballet solo. Post 16 dancers Calamity also wowed the crowd and judges with a fierce Urban performance and became Grand Final winners in the Adult category! A very successful night for Moreton!
