A Word from Mrs Ingham, Head Teacher

18 August 2017

Welcome to the new S1s, parents and staff, and welcome back to everyone else!

Staff started back on Monday 14 August, where we had our two in-service days to continue planning for this session. We welcomed the following new staff to Knox mainstream: Ms Cahoon (English), Mrs Gourlay (Maths), Dr Lyon (Support for Learning), Mrs Cochrane (HE), Ms Walker (Biology & Science), Mr Moncrieff (Physics and Science), Ms Borwick (PE). Mr McDonald (PE) has returned to us on a part-time basis, and we’re very grateful to Mr Raphael for coming back to help with cover in Computing until our new teacher arrives. The following staff joined us at Meadowpark: Ms Murphy, Mr Morrison, Mr Krawiec, Ms Ranu, Ms Will, Ms Mearns, and Ms Smith.

I will be visiting S1 and S5 classes specifically over the next couple of weeks. Matthew Morrison in S2 had been growing his hair for 15 months so that he could donate it to Little Princess Trust, who will use it to make wigs for children who have no hair due to cancer treatment or illness. It was finally long enough over the holidays, so he had his head shaved. It's the second time he's done this over the last three years. Whilst it’s after the event, he’s looking for sponsorship, so if anyone wants to donate, you can get in touch through the school. It’s a marvellous thing that Matthew has done and is just the sort of altruism that makes me...
