Work experience is closer than you think, coming hard on the heels of activity week.  So if you're in the middle of packing or planning for the activites week, have a thought for Monday June 1st when your child will be stepping out as a working person.  I have put out notices through the school bulletin and they are below for you to check at home:

Pupils need to phone their employer to check all is fine for June 1st.

Safety footwear - if this required, please alert me and I can order safety boots

Log books and supervisor reports - all pupils should have these to take home before the end of the week

Transport costs - bus fares will be reimbursed on production of bus tickets after the placement. ...

75 Booked and Counting!

With only 9 days to go until all the self found forms are due in we are doing not too badly at all.  I know parents and carers are working really hard with their S3 pupils to find employers and we have  wide variety of interesting and unusual placements this year.  Pupils are working hard composing perfect formal letters and application forms in class and we should be in a position to post these out soon. During these last few days please ensure you and your son/daughter are on track to hand in completed forms by 7th March (a week on Friday!)  I appreciate with  coursing, activities week and a whole host of other pressures that there's a lot to do in busy households but once the forms are all in, we can relax a bit.

As ever if you need to discuss...

Forms are now available for S3 pupils to organise their own work placements.  They can be found under "School Info", using the Work Experience tab at the bottom.  There are two sides to the forms so please click on front and back for the full form.  

The completed forms must be returned by 27th March.

Latest news. January 27th 2015

S3 pupils have been given their passwords to access the work experience database and they have been making selections in class this week.  Pupils will know their placements next week.  For all pupls who don't want a database placement self found forms will be available from Feb 2nd.  Helpful documents are available on the school website - hover over School Info, go to the bottom tab, Work Experience and you can view or print off documents given to the pupils.

As ever, if you have any questions, please contact me at school.

Pupils currently in S3 will be preparing to go on work placement from Monday 1st June until Friday 5th June next tem.  We will be launching work experience in PSE classes in January, giving pupils and their familes time to think about where they may like to work for the week. 

Please look out for letters, forms and stories appearing on the website.
