Another busy week and, thankfully, the weather has improved. This has meant that the sporting fixtures have been able to start with a rugby match at Dunbar.
As part of our support for study programme, all S3 pupils took part in a 'Live'n Learn' seminar, this proved to be very lively (judging by the cheering from the hall). Feedback has been positive and this is encouraging as we have further sessions planned for other year groups.
This week I have visited all the S2 and S3 classes. The theme this week has been conduct and behaviour and I'm pleased to report that staff were positive about the pupils and the majority of pupils had, and were using, the homework planners. However, some pupils had lost/forgotten/misplaced their school ties and parental help in locating these items that have mysteriously disappeared would be very welcome.
The Parent School Partnership (Parent Council) met on Wednesday evening and I would encourage parents to access the Parent Forum section of the website for more information.
We have the S1 'Settling in Evening' on Tuesday 15th September at 6pm in the school hall and I look forward to providing an update for parents on how their youngsters are doing at Knox Academy.
