We are delighted to announce that Saint Ninian’s High School will host a summer sports camp for primary pupils.
There will be two sports camps which will run on the following dates – 26th to 30th July and 2nd to 6th August.
These camps are a fantastic opportunity to develop a whole host of different sporting and interpersonal skills in an enjoyable environment. This is also a great induction for the young people of Saint Ninian’s feeder schools to experience the PE department.
Please click here to read a poster with further details and pricing.
Payment for camps should be completed using ParentPay on or before Wednesday 23rd June.
On ParentPay you will have the option to pay for either a full week (P1-3 is £30 / P4-7 is £70) or for individual days (P1-3 is £8 and P4-7 is £15). Please make sure the payment is made before you complete the form below. The payment items are set up in such a way that will allow you to make multiple payments (i.e. you may book your child in for 2 days and then you can still go back in to pay for another day later). Please note – you cannot pay for multiple children in the one booking (you need to go into each child’s name/ account on ParentPay).
Please also find below a link to a Microsoft Form which must be completed on or before Wednesday 23rd June to confirm your place at these camps.

As we come into more wintry weather conditions, I would like to outline the arrangements we have put into place should the weather conditions become extreme.
Should there be a snowfall our janitors will clear a path from the main car park to the front door of each of the buildings and the stairs leading from the main building up to the junior department will also be cleared.
The path to the rear of the school leading up to Glenwood Nursery will not be cleared by the school’s janitorial staff.
During periods of severe adverse weather the Council will endeavour to do everything in its power to ensure that schools remain open. However, should our school require to be closed, as much notice as possible will be given to parents. This may take the form of an email, memo in the school bag, and a notice on the home page of the school website.
East Renfrewshire Council’s official website will also contain up to date information regarding the impact of the adverse weather conditions on Council services including schools.
Should the school require to be closed during the course of a school day; no child will be allowed to make their way home unsupervised. Parents, having been contacted by text, will be expected to make arrangements for pupils to be collected from the school. If you have recently changed any of your contact details, please inform the school.
Pupils who normally travel by school bus will be escorted to buses by school staff provided that this service is still operational, otherwise the children will remain in school until collected by an adult.

In light of the Early Years Expansion programme the development at Glenwood Family Centre has now begun in Eastwood Park. As a consequence the parking in and around Woodfarm Road, Glenwood Family Centre and OLM has become significantly reduced. Severely reducing parking at the allotments has necessitated that all parents should avoid Woodfarm Road at OLM and Glenwood Family Centre to reduce the amount of congestion in this area at the start of term. Works will be ongoing until the summer of next. year.
Please note that the pedestrian access between Woodfarm Road and Eastwood Park has been maintained for us.
We suggest you Park and stride.
Please see the map attached.
We have a four week trial of an online programme to support pupils when learning multiplication tables. All pupils from P2 to P7 will receive their login details next week. Please encourage your child to use this daily at home.
