June 2011 Newsletter

Dear Parent/Guardian

June has been another busy month for everyone at the school with a wide range of activities.

  1. Choral Shield
    The Choral Shield will again take place at the SECC Armadillo at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 21 June and Wednesday 22 June.
    Tickets are on sale and are available for collection now. Rehearsals are going very well and the show promises to be outstanding. Please come along and support the casts of all three House groups.

  2. Prizegiving
    Our Annual Prizegiving ceremony will take place on Thursday 23 June at 7.00pm in St Mary’s Church..

  3. Sponsored Walk
    Many thanks to all the pupils who took part in the Sponsored Walk on Friday 3 June. The pupils’ conduct was perfect throughout and they were good ambassadors for the school. All sponsor money should now be handed in to the relevant teacher. Funds raised will go to support the Dalziel High School War Memorial Trust. Many thanks to the parents who helped out and also to the staff who organised the event.

  4. Staffing
    Mrs Donna McCann has been appointed Principal Teacher of Pupil Support for Barclay House. Miss Yvonne Murray has been appointed as a new teacher in the Hearing Impaired Department and we have appointed two new Depute Head Teachers, Jennifer Di Mambro and Jaclyn Lennon. We wish them all every success in their new posts.

  5. New S1 Intake
    Our S1 pupils for next year have now spent two days in the school becoming familiar with the school before starting in August. Hopefully the pupils now have an idea of what to expect in August and have made a few new friends.

  6. School Survey
    Our School Survey is now complete and the results are available on our website www.dalzielhigh.org.uk

  7. Science Fayre
    The Science Fayre was a great success with the pupils having a lot of fun while learning.

  8. Uniform
    Can I once again thank all parents for your continued support for the school and in particular for your support of our dress code. We will be making a particular effort next session to ensure that our high standards are maintained.
