Supported Study Timetable 2019

Please find the supported study TT for S5/6 following the Christmas holiday.

The supported study sessions are not mandatory but we strongly advise that the pupils consider going to as many of the sessions as they can.

These sessions are specifically focused on preparing the pupils for their prelims and may focus on key parts of the course or on exam technique, or both.

Have a great holiday. See you all in 2019!

A Christmas Carol

All of S1 went to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the Citizens’ Theatre last week. It was a fabulous production and was hugely enjoyed by all.

In English pupils then made postcards, a selection of which were sent to the theatre to show our appreciation.

Here are some of their comments:

‘I enjoyed Christmas Day when Scrooge was really nice to everyone. I also liked how he went to his nephew’s house for Christmas.’

‘My favourite part was when Scrooge was flying on his bed and the moon was moving side to side in the sky.’

‘I enjoyed how close we were to the play. In a normal theatre it’s hard to hear and see.’

Lost Property – going … going … gone!

We have a significant quantity of lost property and too much now to store or keep any longer. We are planning to highlight this over the next week and anything unclaimed by the end of the week will be passed on for charity / clothes bank.

The items will be put out on display in the Reprographics Room this week. Pupils can check it out  by calling at the School Office and they will be directed to it. Any parent who wishes to look for particular items  is welcome to come into school and report to the School Office.

Hopefully some lost items will be reunited with their owners but if not, at least they will go somewhere useful.
