Woodfarm High continues to promote a rights respecting ethos by supporting Mary’s Meals charity and participating in the Backpack Project. The project aims to fill backpacks with basic educational materials to send to children receiving Mary’s Meals. Most of the children who benefit have suffered war, poverty, famine, or natural disaster. You can support the charity by forwarding the items pictured to the Social Studies faculty.

Former pupils of Woodfarm High School in Robslee Road are soon to be celebrating their O Level and Higher Results from over 30 years ago in a school reunion being organised next month at the Busby Hotel, 18th Sept 2015.
The pupils most of whom have all got back together again through social network Facebook, are currently close to the 100 mark attending what is hoped to be a fantastic evening of nostalgia and catching up with what career paths each pupil took after leaving in the summer of 1982.
The idea took off as the majority of ex pupils reached the 50 year old turning point in their lives and it was clear to see that a good number of ex pupils had registered with firstly Friends Reunited and then lately Facebook over the last couple of years.
Having taken 12 months to secure 92 attendees through the social media forum the pupils have already been talking on line and reminiscing about their time spent at the successful East Renfrewshire School and exchanging stories about how their lives have developed.
Some pupils having chosen to stay in their native Glasgow surroundings took up careers in accountancy, journalism and financial institutions whilst a good number moved away to locations as far afield as South Africa, Australia and New Zealand to name but a few places far away from Woodfarm . A good number of those ex pats will be in attendance on the night.
In 1982 it was unclear what way those pupils directions and career paths would turn but what is sure on the 18th September 2015 a good number of them will be reuniting and talking about the good old days whilst enjoying a Champagne Reception, Buffet and good old fashioned School Disco.
For former pupils of the years 1982 – 3 who have not managed to be contacted yet, please get in touch with Graham Somerville at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the Facebook Page and details of how you can attend this momentous evening.
A look at why Woodfarm High School in East Renfrewshire, near Glasgow, is so successful.
Woodfarm High School continues to outperform comparator schools and maintain its position among the top schools in the country. This film highlights some of the differences that make it so successful in delivering the best all round education for its pupils.
As we commence a busy session for our pupils in senior school, there will be a real focus for many of our S6, and perhaps some of our S5 pupils, on UCAS applications. Given the current challenges being faced by students applying for university, parents of pupils intending using the UCAS process this session are invited to come along to the school on Wednesday 26th August for an information session on applying to university. This event will commence at 7 pm. Further information to follow in the letter issued to all S6 pupils.
In June 2015 our new S2 participated in a sponsored orienteering event at Rouken Glen Park. It was a lovely afternoon and there was no shortage of enthusiasm as 16 teams set out to find clues which would allow them to complete a task. Over £850 was raised to assist our World Challenge Group who will be going to India next year to do voluntary work. Well done everyone!
