Easter Weekend Reminders

A reminder that the school will close this Thursday at 2.30 pm for the Easter Weekend and will reopen on Tuesday at the normal time.

Thursday will also be the S6 Leavers’ Day. S6 pupils should come into school at 10.40 am and will leave at 2.15 pm following the usual ‘special activities’ arranged for them!

See the separate posts about Study Leave, Revision Masterclasses and SQA exams.

S3 Exams

As in previous years, we are running an exam diet for pupils in S3, this year from Tues 23rd April until Fri 10th May. We introduced this some years ago as part of our attainment-raising strategies and we believe it has contributed to the subsequent improvement in attainment.

It allows pupils (and parents) an opportunity to see whether they are on track with the learning in each subject area and also gives an early experience of the type of exam situation they will face in the prelims and the final SQA exams in S4.

Some exams will be held in the Games Hall to give a better taste of the ‘SQA experience’ but most will be held in classrooms during one of their subject periods.

SQA TARGETED REVISION ‘MASTERCLASSES’

The SQA Study Leave runs from Wed 24th April until Tues 28th May. S4 pupils sitting a significant number of National 5 courses and all S5/6 pupils may study at home with their parent’s permission. (Note – Other S4 pupils will have a special programme of activities and will be allowed to study at home on the day before an exam with their parent’s permission).

During this period we have arranged an additional ‘Masterclass’ for each subject at which subject teacher(s) will be available to offer targeted study in preparation for each exam.

Pupils are encouraged to make use of these.

Pupils coming into school during the Study Leave period must be in full school uniform, whether for these sessions or to see a teacher.

Easter School

The Easter School programme has been proposed, consulted on and finalised with all S4, 5 & 6 pupils over the past few weeks and pupils have now signed up for the sessions that are of most use to them.

Once again staff are offering sessions covering most subject areas over the Tuesday – Thursday mornings of each week (and Friday in Week 2).

There is a £6.75 cost per morning which will cover 2  1.5 hour sessions and this should have been paid through Parentpay by now. Anyone wishing to join a session now should let the School Office know.

While we would not recommend any pupil to work throughout the holiday without taking a break, these sessions will offer the opportunity for some targetted support work in a structured setting so take advantage of the opportunity they give.
