Wider Achievement recognises the life and work skills that are gained from taking part in activities outside of the classroom. These achievements can come from learning within the school, home and wider community and can cover a wide variety of activities ranging from hobbies, volunteering to recognised award programmes.
This helps develop skills for learning, life and work and can be invaluable for our young people as they grow up.
See the St Luke’s High School Wider Achievement Catalogue for clubs and opportunities for our young people.
Health and Wellbeing Family Update 7 – June 2020
Looking after our health and wellbeing as best we can is really important for us all in these uncertain times. Here you will find more health and wellbeing activities that your child can do on their own or you may want to do them together as a family.
Health and Wellbeing Family Update 6
We hope you are spending time with the people close to you – they might live in the same house as you or maybe you are staying connected in other ways. This sixth update gives more advice to families about how to stay healthy during lockdown – mentally and physically.
Following the Prime Minister’s and First Minister’s broadcasts on Monday night, it is very clear that it is even more essential that we minimise the numbers of pupils and staff coming into schools to help reduce the social contact across the country in an attempt to slow down the spread of COVID-19.
Our procedures for supporting Key Workers began on Monday 23rd March. However with the very small numbers involved, both in St Luke’s High school and across the authority, it has now been decided by the local authority to close all secondary schools with effect from Tuesday 24th March at 3pm.
The arrangements to support Key Workers will still be in place but any St Luke’s High school pupils will from Wednesday be accommodated in Carlibar Primary as the Hub School for all pupils meeting the criteria.
We will follow strictly the guidelines that this offer is only open when both parents fall into the categories identified by the Scottish Government and only during periods when they are both at work.
Only the pupils identified as meeting the criteria should attend school and even in that case, only as a last resort.
Many of you have already made alternative arrangements and we appreciate your support with this. If this is not possible, and you do meet the criteria and still require to send your child, please contact the school directly on SchoolMail@st-lukes.e-renfrew.sch.uk so we can plan to have staff present at Carlibar to cover from Wednesday .
If anyone’s requirements change over the next week until the Easter holidays begin, please contact the school directly on school email.
Staff continue to provide learning resources via Google Classroom and faculty websites on a daily basis. Any pupils who have forgotten their password should alert us through school mail and this can be reset for them. We would like to thank you for your ongoing support and messages throughout this very difficult time.
