Mental Health and Wellbeing Sessions

This year, the school will be holding a series of mental health awareness events to help support parents and families understand the mental health issues faced by young people, and equip them with tools to build positive mental health. There are six sessions planned to run across the year, with one being held each month. The first session is on Tuesday 8th November 6.30-7.30pm in school and is an introduction to mental health awareness. The letter below provides more information. Please click to find out more!

Mental Health & Wellbeing Evenings Letter

Mental Health Support

“If you or somebody else is needing a bit of emotional support, it can be a little scary knowing what to Google, who to turn to and what you can do to manage your emotions in a healthy way. It’s important to talk to someone about how you are feeling. This could be a family member or friend, your GP or by calling a helpline.”

YoungScot has produced a brilliant new directory of mental health support organisations for young people and adults. Take a look at their webpage by clicking the link below:

Music Department Update

Music Department update in light of Coronavirus:

The following 2 documents have been produced to support our Music Instructors, Music Teaching staff, parents and pupils move forward in these challenging times in Music.
Certain instruments cannot currently be played in school (brass and woodwind) and singing is also not allowed at this current time. For pupils to undertake activities like this, video technology must be used to help support our pupils for the foreseeable future.
For pupils whose instruments fall under the current restrictions or for pupils who sing, a letter will be sent home explaining that they must read through the above documents. Included in the letter will be a page that the Parent / Guardian must sign to say that they have read these documents. This letter should then be returned to Mr Reid (Faculty Head of Expressive Arts).
Only at this point when the letter is returned and signed, should pupils start to engage in the live streams with their Music Instructors or video sharing with instructors or teachers.
If any parent has any concerns or has any questions, can these please drop Mr Reid an email at:
