Easter School 2017

It gives us great satisfaction to be able to communicate the arrangements for this session’s Easter School (S4-S6).

Unfortunately there is no longer any funding granted for this initiative and due to this, some aspects of Easter School will be slightly different to previous years. With this in mind, certain adjustments have had to be considered to ensure that we can continue to offer Easter School.

The members of our teaching staff who have very kindly offered this additional support for young people S4 – 6 during the first week of their holidays are doing so on a completely voluntary basis. I would like to take this opportunity to express how grateful I am to have such a dedicated team of staff working in our school and I am sure you appreciate their commitment every bit as much as I do.

Easter School Options Forms can be downloaded below and are to be completed and handed in to the school office no later that Monday 27th March, 3.45pm.
