S3 Interim reports were issued today, Thursday 26th September 2019.
As we did for the last report, we again ask that pupils lead a discussion regarding their progress with their parent / carer and complete their online survey at home, using the link and QR code attached to the letter on the report. Pupils are asked to input information regarding their engagement (based on their report), participation (based on the activities that they take part in) and wellbeing linked with the Wellbeing Indicators (SHANARRI).
This should be completed by Tuesday 1st October. Details can be found on the front of the report.
We thank you for your continued support.

Depute Head teacher
Thank you to all the pupils and parents who came along to the EGX London Trip Information Evening held on Tuesday 24th September. Mr Smith has provided his slides.
EGX London 2019 Information Evening
The S2 Parents’ Evening will take place on Thursday 30th May. Pupils should have received and appointment time and follow up sheet from their interviewing teacher. Please ensure the follow up sheet is returned on Tuesday to allow the interviewing teacher time to gather all the information required to answer your queries. In addition to this, the interviewing teacher will engage in professional discussion with class teachers to ensure a full and comprehensive report is provided regarding your son/daughter’s progress. If you have any further queries following the interview, the interviewing teacher will take note of this and a member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible.
Your son/daughter should bring their PSHE booklet to the interview. During the interview they will have the opportunity to lead a discussion about their progress: academic, co-curricular and with regards to their wellbeing.
I will be at the main entrance of the school throughout the evening and look forward to seeing you all.
Mrs J Wilson
Acting Depute Head Teacher
On behalf of St Ninian’s High School and The YPI Foundation, I would like to congratulate all of our 2nd year pupils for their hard work and enthusiasm during this project. The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community. Each team was responsible for directing a £3000 YPI Grant to a local charity through a unique programme of team work, research and competition. YPI Scotland is all about creativity and passion, leaving the four walls of the classroom behind, and supporting the issues you care most about.
Our pupils took on this challenge with an excellent attitude and their dedication was evident throughout this task since it began in September 2018. 10 groups made it to the final held in February 2019. The winning group was awarded £3000 from The YPI Foundation for their charity. In addition to this, the school donated £100 to each of the remaining 9 finalists. We are very proud of the achievements of all of our pupils and thank them for all that they have done.
Congratulations to our winning team from 2a5 and their charity The Village Storytelling Centre
A reminder to all S2 pupils that they should have completed their S2 tracking survey.
For this most recent report, we have asked pupils to lead a discussion regarding their reports with their parent / carer and complete their online survey at home using the link and QR code on the letter attached to the school report. This letter has also been emailed to parents. Following completion of the survey your son / daughter will meet with their Pastoral Support Teacher to discuss their current levels of progress and what target should be set for the next reporting period. Pupils should speak to their pastoral support teacher if they have any problems accessing the survey. Pupils should have completed this by Tuesday 29th January. Thank you to all those who have completed the survey. Anyone who hasn’t must do so before Thursday 31st January where they will meet with their Pastoral support teacher in PSHE.
The next pupil Forum will be held on Tuesday 18th December, period 2 in Maths room 1.
Some of our S2 pupils have been working very hard alongside S6 pupils to develop and make a video about the 5 Ways to Wellbeing. The project has been led by the pupils and required them to use their creativity and acting skills. It will be a promotional film highlighting the excellent work that takes place in the school to promote Health and Wellbeing and will be used in PSHE and at assemblies in the near future.
Well done to all the S2 pupils who have achieved a Saltire Award for their hard work through volunteering. We are very proud of you and encourage you to keep up the excellent work!
