The National Improvement Framework for Scottish education is an ambitious strategy to help all children to achieve their full potential as successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors. The Framework sets out how evidence is gathered to inform action, making sure that we are all focused on improving standards for our children, and in our schools.
Thank you to Cassie, one of our Isobel Mair School graduates who visited the Thursday ISS@IMS group this afternoon.
Cassie chatted to the students about how she has completed supported colleges courses and is now on a fulltime beauty course.
She discussed what it’s like to be at college and the great support she got from staff and friends.
She offered beauty treatments to the girls and they were all delighted with their manicures.
Isobel Mair School is taking part in Waste week, where pupils & staff will be encouraged to think about recycling & re-using materials in different ways and then design something for the “Upcycling Competition 2017” organised by classes Lewis and Sanda.
All the entries will be displayed at the whole school assembly on Friday 3rd February and the winning entries will be on display at the Parents Evening on Monday 6th February.
The winners will also be entered into a national Waste Week Competition which is taking place in March! Further details about the national competition can be found below http://jointhepod.org/waste-week-2017
Today we welcomed Carol Gillespie, HMDT National Support Worker, Scotland as we marked Holocaust memorial Day.
This year Carol arranged for our visitor Saskia Tepe to share her story to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
Saskia has written a book about her mother’s remarkable story as she survived the holocaust and shared a question and answer session with some of our senior pupils before lighting the Holocaust Memorial Candle.
