All S3 students who are helping Miss Laudi with the P7 Literacy Event on Tuesday 30 April should be aware of the following:

  • The event runs from 1pm to 2:45pm.
  • S3 volunteers will be participating in the event over their lunch break, which means that they'll have to take their lunch during period 4. S3 volunteers should register with their period 4 teacher and then come to Mrs. Cochrane's class in French to have their lunch. Since this is during class time, students will be unable to leave the school building to buy their lunch elsewhere, so students should bring in their own packed lunch that day.
  • S3 volunteers will be taken to the PE hall around 12:50pm to meet their P7 groups.
  • S3 volunteers will miss period 5 but they will attend part of period 6.

If you have any questions, please see Miss Laudi.

We are exploring the opportunity of running an Expedition in 2021. Outlook Expedition are a well established company that provide overseas educational expeditions, adventure travel and volunteering projects for schools.

If you click on the link below you will be taken to a survey where you can see three possible destinations and get an idea about what activities might be involved should your young person choose to participate. If there is sufficient interest in an expedition then we would look to hold an information evening at the end of May into early June

For further information you can contact myself at the school, Dr Vicky Lyon.

Do you have any spare clothes hangers at home that you'd be happy to get rid of? If so, please bring them to Miss Laudi or Miss McBride. We're setting up a uniform collection point to support families in our community and hangers would be very useful! Also, if anyone has a portable clothes rack they'd be willing to donate to the school, that would be great too! It's much more sustainable to re-use what's already out there than to buy brand new!
