Raising Attainment – Open Evening
Thursday 23rd February 2017
7.15pm – 8.45pm
All S4/S5/S6 pupils were issued with a letter regarding our Raising Attainment Open Evening before the February holiday. The details of the evening are below and we would like to encourage as many parents/carers as possible to come along.
We are very proud of the achievements and high standards of attainment of our pupils throughout school and in their SQA examinations. However we strive to continue to raise standards of attainment every year, challenging our pupils to achieve their full potential. The 2017 SQA exam diet starts in 10 weeks and the countdown is now on! In order to help you support your son/daughter in preparing for the forthcoming exams we would like to invite you to attend an information evening at Auchinleck Academy on Thursday 23rd February. The focus for the evening will be on raising attainment in the SQA exams. The evening will consist of a number of sessions where staff will provide information and practical advice on themes such as: organisation skills, practical revision techniques and managing exam related anxieties.
I would very much appreciate it if you can let the school know if you are able to attend by contacting the main office on 01290 420617.
If there are any additional themes that you feel you would like more information/support on, please let us know and we will try to accommodate your request either at this event or a future opportunity.

Auchinleck Academy has been shortlisted for the Tesco Bags of Help Initiative. Our Project involves creating a working, learning and active area around the school and will also support the Green Gym project that has been running for the last year.
Bags of Help offers Community Groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. the public will now vote in store from 1st December to 31st December on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 award.
We would really appreciate the support of all those within our whole school and local community. All you need to do is get down to Tesco and vote for our project. The stores are as follows: Auchinleck, Kilmarnock, Kilmarnock Extra and Galston.
