A Word from Miss Cook, Head Teacher

21 September 2018

It was lovely to see everyone return from the holiday weekend looking refreshed.  Pupils are engaging well in their learning and those I have spoken with report making good progress across their subjects.  I would like to congratulate our new S1 cohort who have settled well at the school and seem to be enjoying the vast array of subjects they attend. 

Staff News

We look forward to welcoming Mr Richard Watson in Technologies on Monday. 

We are in the process of interviewing for vacancies in English, Maths, Physics and Geography (0.6FTE).

We say a fond farewell to Lauren Jeffrey (Geography) and Bev Skirrow (Business Manager) next week.

Good luck to Dr Lyons who is running two marathons this weekend (yes, two)! 

School Uniform

Knox Academy has a proud tradition of wearing its school uniform with pride and a reputation for our pupils looking smart.  Please could I ask parents to continue to support this as we head towards the autumn/winter months to ensure that alternatives to our uniform do not creep in (ripped jeans etc.).  For security reasons woolly hats and hoodies (the actual hood) should be removed before entering the building. I would like to thank parents for their support with this.

S6 Dalguise Trip

The S6 head off today for their weekend trip to Dalguise.  This involves them taking part in numerous team building activities and, I am sure, getting very wet.  This provides the S6 with an opportunity to build team skills as well as have plenty fun they will remember for the rest of their lives.  A huge thank you to all the staff accompanying them.

Eco Committee and Green Team

The Eco-Committee & Green Team have launched an eco-logo competition this week and are keen to receive as many entries as possible.  The overall winner will also get a prize as well as their winning logo being used.  More details are available from Ms Laudi.

Home Support Group

Parents/Carers of dyslexic students are invited to attend the first home support group meeting for dyslexic students on Tuesday 25th September at 6pm in the Library.  Dr Lyons will be leading these sessions.
