Eastwood High School is hosting a performing opportunity for its musicians and singers to celebrate their musical talents. S1-3 pupils will form the junior category, and the senior category will be made up of S4-6 pupils. Each student will perform one piece of music approximately 2 minutes long and invited guests will give feedback on the performances. A winner will be selected from each category at the end of the event, and a trophy presented to the most outstanding performance.

The event will take place on Thursday 15th November. Doors will open at 5:30pm and the performances will commence from 6-8pm. Tickets can be purchased on the door at £2 each.

One musician and one singer from the senior category will be selected to represent the school at the East Renfrewshire Rotary Young Musician and Young Singer evening later in the year.

Reminder – P7 Open Evening

Every year Eastwood High School hosts an Open Evening for P7 Pupils to give you the opportunity to see the school, the facilities and see some of our young people working in classes.

We would like to invite you to the event in the new school on:

Thursday 25th October 2018 in the Atrium of the Main Building.

It is important that everyone is in the Atrium by 6.45 pm sharp as Mr Maxwell, the Head Teacher, will address parents at 7.00 pm.

Thereafter, tours of the departments will commence, which follow a very tight schedule, so timing is crucial.  This year the tours will allow you to visit every department in the school.

Tea, coffee and juice will be served at some point on your tour. This will be in the café area on the ground floor.

If you wish any further details about this Open Evening, please contact the school.
