A Word from Mrs Ingham, Head Teacher

21 April 2017

Welcome back to the Summer Term! Pupils seem to have enjoyed their Easter Holidays – even the seniors, who had to balance having a break with cracking on with their revision.

The Easter Revision classes were well attended and I hope that they gave pupils a bit of a boost and impetus to ensure that they are in a good position to sit their exams in a couple of weeks’ time. Thanks must go to the staff that put on the classes.

At the end of March, I was delighted to hear that we have been awarded the “Cycle Friendly Secondary School Award” from Cycling Scotland. This is down to the hard work of Scott Marnoch and a team of staff and pupils, to raise the profile of cycling in the school through extra-curricular and curricular activities. I would like to thank Scott and the team for all their hard work.

Congratulations go to Andrew Syme, Ben Ritchie, Dylan Glass, Ross Campbell, and Kirk Washington Mackay on being selected to play for East Lothian Falcons U15’s vs Borders U15’s on Wednesday night. The pupils were split across two teams – one that won and one that lost. However, I think it was a valuable experience for all and I am delighted that they have represented the school, their families and their town so well.

I am delighted to say that we have had a great response from S5 to the Kickstart programme that I intimated to you last term. Our response rate, at the moment, is the highest of all schools in East and Mid Lothian. Applications need to be in by the end of today.

Just a reminder that we are holding a meeting at 6.30pm on Wednesday...
