A roller coaster day at M&D’s

Written by Joe H

Our day at M & Ds was fantastic.

We left at 10am with Miss Langland’s and Miss Langridge and we drove to Glasgow. Aaron, Ryan, Andrew and Lewis came to M & Ds with us.


When we got there, it looked enormous. There were lots of rides and other things. The first thing I went on was the cannonball this is a big rollercoaster. Me and Ryan was first on. When I climbed into the car I felt a bit nervous. It started really slowly and that was ok but then the car started to climb and I really felt a bit scared. When we got to the top, the car tipped and flew right down into a massive dip. It felt amazing and I could not believe the speed of it. It was a brilliant ride and I loved it.

There were so many other things at M & Ds it was the best day I can remember.

A BOOtiful night at the Falkland Halloween party

The boys recently had a ‘ spooktacular’ time at the annual Halloween party.

Atholl House was decorated throughout and the boys were all in costume to mark the occasion. They spent the first part of the evening listening to ghost stories and eating treats, before playing some fun filled games, such as dooking for apples and treacle scones on a string.

Some of the boys also took part in a pumpkin carving competition throughout evening activities which were then put forward to our judging panel.  The winning pumpkins were carved by Lucas W and Dylan M who received their prizes at morning assembly.

Pupils help brighten up homes with colourful palace flowers

Pupils from Falkland House School joined volunteers at Falkland Palace garden to create a stunning floral display.

Boys from the school helped nurture a 40-metre-long border which has provided a colourful range of cut flowers.

Falkland House School and the National Trust for Scotland worked with Angela Smith from the Royal Horticultural Society, who gave advice on what makes a beautiful bouquet.

Sonia Ferras-Mana, who is the heard gardener at Falkland Palace said : ” I’m delighted to see our old and unused kitchen garden getting back into its former production.”

” Cut flowers have been very important for the palace through its history.”

“Our visitors are enjoying the colour brought into this border and the local community are pleased to take as part of our garden to their home as the cut flowers are on sale to support our gardens.”

” This initiative would not have been possible without the support from our volunteers and Falkland House School.”
