Many pupils have misplaced property in the PE department since the beginning of the academic year. It can be very difficult to identify which items belongs to whom, therefore the PE department are introducing a lost property pick up day on the last Friday of every month. All the lost property will be displayed in the PE classroom and any remaining items will be given to charity.

If you have a quick minute have a look at the video below which involved a number of S3 pupils who stepped up to the plate to be apart of the SkySports Leadership Team... leading events for local primary schools. This was their FIRST event!! And they smashed it.

All pupils involved stepped out their comfort zone and challenging their confidence and social skills (what the initiative is all about). All becoming coaches or leaders/organisers. The 28 S3 pupils led the event for 140 Primary 4 pupils.

S3 pupils have a busy time ahead - work experience comes straight after activities week, so we are preparing pupils now to do their final bits and pieces before they hit the workplace!  You can help at home by going through the final checklist summary attached below and checking that all the "t"s are crossed and "i"s are dotted.  Please give me a call if you need any more information. Spare log books and supervisor report forms can be printed off from the website or picked up from the school office.

Good luck to all S3 pupils!
