All over

For those of you who I didn't see today, I hope you feel OK about the Geography exams. Highers seemed especially pleased. I thought it was a good paper for us as well. S grades -oh dear the least I say about the General paper, the better. Haven't had a chance to examine all the Credit yet. No doubt some bits will have caused a problem but I'm sure you all coped. All exams are nearly over and the new timetables start soon. See you back on the 8th June folks! Good luck to all S5 and S6 pupils leaving this summer. Pop in and visit at a later date. As you know I am always busy but still keen to see you nontheless.

I know I have posted this before but I think considering the post below it is relevant to put this in again. Love the fact that the educators are almost as good as chimpanzees! No comment please from you Carrick lot I may throw a banana at you!

HIV rates of spread in the world

Thanks to Richard Allaway for this video. This is a great piece of revision for Higher and Int 2 Development and Health. Brilliant reminder of how useful Gapminder is when you look carefully.

Weathering Introduction

Swine Flu

Thanks to Alan Parkinson over at Living Geography for highlighting this one. Interesting for Int 2 Development and Health and even Higher (loosely).

Carrick is Quaking up!

Can't say more at the moment but Carrick will be involved in a great project recording earthquakes from around the world soon. We hope this will be a really exciting thing for pupils and will involve Geography and Science together. Have a good holiday weekend everyone.
