We have had a busy few months and would like to share our latest achievements and news with you.
Tracking Reports were issued yesterday to our pupils in S4. To discuss your S4 child’s progress with teaching staff please come along to the S4 Parent’s Evening tonight from 5-7pm!
Our Senior Awards Ceremony last night was a wonderful occasion of celebration and recognition of the achievements of our young people. Parents and pupils filled the hall and there was a lovely atmosphere of excitement and delight at the success of sons, daughters, students. Once again our musical talent performed to the highest standard, from soul band classics to moving extracts from Les Miserable. Our pupils and former pupils received their awards with a real sense of satisfaction at the level of their accomplishments and humility at being so recognised by their school. Presentations from pupils on experiences such as volunteering in Lourdes with the St. Margaret Scotland Youth Group, participating in the Transplant Games and developing confidence through involvement with Career Academy were both moving and inspirational.
As keynote speaker Father John had the opportunity to once again provide inspiration to parents and staff, as well as to the senior students in Lourdes. In addition it was a fitting occasion for him to say a final farewell to the community he has served so well and has loved so much these last eight years. Our invited guests indicated that they had really enjoyed the ceremony and were very impressed by our young people.
The success of the event was in no small way due to the meticulous and thoughtful levels of preparation and presentation.
Thanks to the many Principal Teachers / Faculty Heads and staff who came along to participate in such a wonderful celebration of the successes of our young people. It is very much appreciated by parents and pupils to see staff joining in this celebration
I would like to thank all the staff who worked so hard throughout the year to support young people in their learning so that they were able to achieve such high levels of success.
