Update on Gaelic Students

Just to update you on Whitehills Gaelic School and Forfar Academy students that competed in the 90th Mod at Aberfeldy at the new Breadalbane School and community campus on the 16th June.  A great day was had with both schools picking up multiple wins in all the categories such as poetry, song, plays, art, conversation and even bible recitation! Little Angels!

We are about to see a change in the teaching personnel for the next school year and plans are afoot to show off the attributes of billingual education with up and coming events to get more pupils and families interested in joining the school. Plans are in the pipeline to offer Gaelic as a language choice for the 1st year Forfar Academy pupils with a Gaelic choir also being talked about. Will keep you all posted

Tapadh Leat.

Parentzone Survey

Parentzone –Tell us what you think about the Parentzone website.

 Parentzone is a website dedicated to providing you as a parent or carer, with the most up to date information about your child’s education.

It provides practical advice and ideas of how you can be involved in your child’s learning as well as essential information on features of Curriculum for Excellence.

If you are a parent of a child aged 3 – 18 we would be grateful if you would complete our short survey to help us ensure that Parentzone reflects the needs of all parents and carers.

The survey should take about 5 – 10 minutes to complete and all responses are confidential.

The survey will close on 30 August 2013
