October 2016 Newsletter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

  1. School Show
    This year audiences have been entertained and enthralled by successful performances of our School Show, “The Wiz”. The show involved pupils from S2-S4 and is performed over four nights. Well done to all involved on stage and behind the scenes - we are exceptionally proud of you.

  2. Parent Council
    We are very fortunate to have a very active Parent Council involving parents and staff meeting around seven times per year to discuss a whole range of school issues. There are normally seven or eight parents involved who have been elected onto the group. There are currently some vacancies for parents to join this group and I am inviting parents to put their name forward for the Parent Council.

  3. Remembrance Service
    Our annual Remembrance Service will be held in the school on Sunday 13 November at 2.00 pm in the Assembly Hall not Sunday 6 November, as was previously advertised.

  4. Extra Curricular Activities
    There are a great variety of extra-curricular activities available for all pupils in the school. Click Here for more details.

  5. Celebrating Success
    Congratulations go to three of our pupils, Megan Graham, Dion Ingram and Molly Shearer, who recently gained their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Expedition Awards. Well done to them all on their marvellous achievement.
