In order to help prepare your child for their prelims we have put in place a mini support package during PSE time, where pupils have had input on study skills, preparing for exams and exam motivation.  It is also vital that your child is studying at home and preparing for these exams.  If you have any questions regarding the prelim exams please contact me on 0141 582 0100 or sneil@hillheadhigh.glasgow.sch.uk

National Anti-Bullying Week

Next week is national Anti-Bullying week (12th-16th November) and there will be a number of things going on in classes and around school to raise awareness amongst pupils and staff.

The S6 senior leadership team will be delivering a presentation on ‘Respect’ and what it means to pupils at assemblies this week.

Some of the junior PSE classes will be doing activities focusing on anti bullying as well as some work in certain departments.

The S6 team will have some stalls in the foyer to display some information and to talk to pupils who want to know more. They will also be selling some merchandise to raise money for the Anti-Bullying alliance charity who do a lot of work in schools to teach staff and pupils about how to deal with bullying.

HHS Remembers – Roy Douglas Harvey

‘HHS Remembers’project invites pupils, parents and the community to remember the Great War and it’s impact on our lives.

The project will take pupils into the trenches, bring alive the memories of former pupils who have fallen, investigate influential and inspiring people and reflect upon our own values and what it means to be kind, ambitious, have integrity, resilient and respectful.

Recently, the school was contacted by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission(CWGC) regarding a former pupil, Private Roy Douglas Harvey. Private Harvey was killed on 11th August 1918 during the Battle of Amiens. The inscription on his headstone, “My task accomplished and the long day done”, has inspired former poet laureate Sir Andrew Motion for his poem Armistice, which was commissioned by CWGC. Read more about Private Douglas, and Motions poem below.
