Hawick High School’s head team for 2015/16 have been officially announced.
Head Boy Frazer Towers, Head Girl Katie Templeman, Deputy Head Boy Tom Elliot-Walker and Deputy Head Girl Cassie Murdoch were given a welcome at the school’s prizegiving ceremony.
Meanwhile, the school’s Zambia exchange students have arrived in the African country after a 33-hour journey. The pupils are in Ndola, where they have spent their first few days visiting schools. The group have described on their Facebook page how they had a very emotional visit to The Mackenzie shanty town where they found up to 80 pupils in a class. The Hawick students have also been visiting the local market and the school rugby team.
Another group of pupils have travelled to the Belgium town of Ypres for the Hawick High Battlefields Tour.
