During May 2016, Head Teachers in Moray are engaging in discussions with staff, pupils and parent councils regarding the consideration of a move to a 33-period week from session 2017/2018.  Opportunity will be given to consider either moving to the 33 period week or retaining the status quo i.e. a 30 period week for secondary schools. Views will be sought and reported back to the Director of Education and Social Care who will make the final decision on retaining the status quo or implementing a 33 period week from session 2017/18.  All KGS parents are invited to attend the Parent Council meeting on Tuesday, 10th May 2016 at 7pm where you will be able to ask any questions or share your thoughts on this proposal.  The following letter – The Moray Council 33 period week letter – was issued via pupil post this week.
