PTA is organising a blazer recycling initiative

Williamwood High School PTA is organising a blazer recycling initiative. We are inviting parents to donate good quality blazers, which their children have outgrown and/or no longer need. We plan to offer these blazers to other parents at a reduced price. All profits made will go to the PTA to support projects that will directly benefit pupils of Williamwood.

How do I donate a blazer?  <further details>

School uniform – maintaining high standards

The standard of uniform worn by our pupils continues to be excellent.  Your support in maintaining this standard has been first class and I thank you for it.

I have arranged for Man’s World to come to the school from 3.00pm until 8.00pm on Wednesday 19 June.

At this event, you will be able to purchase a full range of uniform items. From experience, I know that many parents find this a convenient way to buy uniform for their children.

In June 2011, East Renfrewshire Council issued all parents with a copy……. <click further details>

PTA Golf website blog – May 2013

Congratulations to Scott (S2),  Williamwood PTA’s Golf Open champion for 2013 . Scott won the 9-hole competition, which was hosted by Cathcart Castle Golf Club on Wednesday 1st May, with an impressive score of 40 (six over par). Ronan Johnston (S3) also achieved a score of 40, but finished as the runner-up due to Scott having a lower score over the final two holes.

The annual tournament has been organised and subsidised by the PTA since 2009. We would like to thank all staff at Cathcart Castle Golf Club for making our pupils feel so welcome and for giving them such a great golfing experience.

Parking restrictions – ERC introduces new enforcement arrangements

This week I shall issue all pupils with an ERC leaflet which provides information on car parking in restricted areas. The leaflet, Be A Smart Parker, explains that from 2 April 2013 community wardens/parking attendants will have civil powers to to issue penalties for static parking offences. The school has a number of parking bays which are clearly marked for the exclusive use of disabled badge holders. Drivers who are not disabled badge holders are strongly advised to avoid parking in these bays. The link below gives more information on this matter.


‘Pride of Williamwood’ Launch

The national televised Pride of Britain Awards celebrate the achievements of truly remarkable people. The winners come from all walks of life and from all age groups, but they have one thing in common, they inspire others. At Williamwood we would like to acknowledge the achievements of our pupils in a ‘Pride of Williamwood’ section on the Pupil Support website. Each month nominations will be submitted by staff, parents, pupils or the wider community. The award will not be based on academic performance; its purpose is to recognise achievement beyond the purely academic. Please visit the Pupil Support page (go first to ‘Departments’) to see our first nominees.
