    Once again Hawick High News have not failed to disappoint, and took part in the BBC School News Report. However, this year we teamed up with an S2 English class who have brought new flavour to our usual report. Check it out!
    Geography World Wise Quiz Victory
    The High school has plenty cause for celebration, as on February 1st 2012, two teams of geographers aged from S2-4, all journeyed to Paisley, Glasgow, in order to represent Hawick high school in the fun, but fierce West coast of Scotland heat of the geographical World Wise Quiz, in which Hawick B team returned home victorious. A journey which has already shaped the landscape of unique pride for HHS, shaped as these pupils made all the right turns in securing the title of the West coast of Scotland WWQ Champions.
    Entering the heat blind, (hosted by Glennifer High School), and almost one hundred miles form Hawick, team A, (composed of Keiran Murphy (S2), Siannah Shuttleworth (S3), and Abbey McPherson (S4), and team B, (composed of Neil Armstrong (S2), Kyle Barlow (S4), and Mhairi Herd (S4)), were deposited in a situation a little out of their comfort zone, but with unparalleled geographical knowledge, and frankly, the luck of the devil, team B slaughtered all other attending teams, including Cumbernauld, Lockerbie, Clydebank, and Gleniffer high School itself.
    Within all six rounds of the quiz, team B in particular were carried comfortably along by the current of their knowledge in meandering their way through the Rivers Round, the wind was blowing favourably for them throughout the Weather Round, they expertly navigated their way through the OS Map work Round, found they were at home in the Scottish Islands Round, demonstrated admirable distinction in the Odd One Out Round, and within the News 2011 and 2012 Round, ironically also found a place in history.
    Like a glacier, Hawick B team stood together strongly, and were almost intimidating to other teams in the sheer quality of their compacted knowledge, however, showed no signs of moving down slope under the colossal weight of their accomplishment- which is evidently nowhere near the end of it’s journey.
    As Hawick B team unexpectedly secured themselves in a position of 2nd place, which achieved them entry to the heat’s final, they found their memory, strategy, common sense, general knowledge, and general luck for that matter, was brutally quizzed in the revealed rounds of Movie recollection, Jet Streams, India, and Satellite Cities. Although on fire throughout these rounds, the glacier Hawick B team turned out to be showed no signs of melting.
    Let’s hope that HHS’s young geographers, Neil, Kyle, and Mhairi locate additional cause for celebration at the WWQ Scottish final which will take place on March 26th; the venue this time round being Mclaren High School, which they were invited to compete in upon achieving this title.
    All who attended wish to thank Mr Fleming, who was responsible for training the HHS participants, and without which the high school would not have been represented.

    Science Week 2010
    Pupils from all of Hawicks Primary Schools came up to Hawick
    High School as part of this years Science week.
    Whilst they were here they got to take part in many experiments
    From each of the High Schools Science Departments.
    In Biology they were able to take a look at some real life
    Animals including snakes, rats and even a dog!
    The Physics Department had a very loud experiment going on,
    Primary School Pupils where able to play with the departments
    Sound wave machines and they certainly made plenty of sound!
    The High Schools 3rd years also had a visit from a Liver expert
    who taught all the 3rd years about the bad affects smoking has
    on the Human Body.

    Pump Track comes to Hawick High School
    This month we were delighted to host a Pumptrack in the
    school playground. Pupils from the High School and
    Burnfoot primary, enjoyed honing their cycling skills by
    attempting to get around the bumpy track as may times as
    possible without peddling.
    Ben from the High School Cycling Club managed to complete
    an impressive eighty eight laps and Cameron, also from the
    club, managed fifty two. Most pupils, however, were counting
    their laps in single figures!

    Ben and Cameron explained to us that the trick is to
    push down, or pump, on the handlebars as you are on
    the down slope then to pull up on the up slope. "It's a
    bit like going on a swing," we were told. "You soon
    buld up momentum."
