We have been working with pupils, parents and staff reviewing our approaches to recognition of achievement and the House profiles. Information on how to vote is at the bottom of this article...
From these discussions it has been agreed to move forward with a House tie, which will immediately link the pupil with their House and will form part of our school uniform from session 2020/2021.
All pupils should vote for either Option A (thick band) or Option B (thin band).
The Achievement ties will be awarded for a significant piece of work, winning awards, representing teams over the seasons and also for ‘diligence in their school work over the year’.
The Achievement ties use a gold band combined with the relevant House colour.
BGE ties will have a single gold band, while Senior ties will have a double/thicker gold band.
For this vote choose either A1/A2 or B.
- Pupils will be asked to express their opinion in Registration Class votes.
- Parents/Carers are encouraged to respond to the Twitter Polls (House Tie Poll | Achievement Tie Poll) to show their preferences.
- Staff and community partner votes also welcome!
The House ties use Lammerlaw as an example, while the Achievement ties use Traprain as the example.
