Hello to all Tech pupils… a little update from the Tech Dep
All S1 and S2 pupils have now been added to a Microsoft team. From today (Monday 30/3/20) we will start to upload materials, tasks and quizzes for you to work on at home.
S3 pupils should already be part of a team and be continuing with their studies. If your teacher has not yet provided you with any directions don’t forget you can continue to practice your sketching skills or have a go at some past papers – click here
S4 to S6: We are still waiting on confirmation from the SQA on the exact details for 2019/2020 assessment. We will update you as soon as we know more. If you are planning on returning to the dept next year, you should also practice sketching or have a go at some past papers.
