Rapid Response Challenge – New S2 students

All S1 (New S2) students, over the coming week, will enjoy a variety of lessons across a number of subjects on the Rapid Response Challenge.  Students will work in groups and use their problem-solving skills to complete a number of tasks.

The project finishes on Wednesday, 19th June with a challenge day, with students working outside for most of the day. The challenge day is a dress-as-you-please day (for new S2 students only), but students should come prepared for all weathers (sun cream and an outdoor jacket).

Students are not permitted to wear football colours.

Duke of Edinburgh – Expeditions

All (New) S4 DOFE Students:

For the students and parents that missed the recent DOFE Parents’ Information Evening, please see this PowerPoint presentation for all the information relating to the upcoming DOFE Expeditions.

In Summary:

  1. Practice Expedition – Thurs & Fri, 5th & 6th September 2019
  2. Assessed Expedition – Wed & Thurs 25th & 26th September 2019

Students will be supported through both expeditions, although there will be times when they will walk in groups of 6 unaccompanied.  Students will be issued with emergency mobile numbers and walkie-talkies, which they should use in the event of an emergency.

If there are any further questions or concerns, please contact Mr Boag via the school office.

Parental Involvement and Engagement Census

Parental Involvement and Engagement Census

East Renfrewshire Council are asking parents in all of their schools to respond to a survey which will be used to help improve the service offered by schools. The message (click here) explains this in more detail and contains a link which will take you to the survey. It should take around 5 minutes to complete and I would appreciate if you are able to do this for us.

The survey will remain open until 27th June 2019 and can be accessed by clicking on the link below:
