The detailed proposal being consulted on is to re-zone the Mid Forest area of South Cumbernauld which is adjacent to Abronhill, from the Greenfaulds High School catchment area to the Cumbernauld Academy catchment area (see maps on the attached document for more details of the area concerned). This will ensure that pupils who reside in the Mid Forest area are zoned for the same secondary school as all other pupils who reside within the proposed Abronhill Primary School catchment area.

Greenfaulds High School Art and Design Department
2017 is the year of History, Heritage and Archaeology and the Art and Design Department at GHS have been successful with a heritage lottery fund bid for Stories, Stones and Bones sharing heritage funding. The amount of the bid is £10,000.
The Art & Design project is called ‘A Sense of Place: The Roman Presence in Cumbernauld’ and the key local heritage sites are Bar Hill Roman Fort and the Antonine Wall. The Art & Design department are looking forward to taking pupils on trips to see the Roman fort and Antonine Wall, as well as Roman artefacts in collections at the Hunterian Museum and the National Museum of Scotland. A main part of the project will involve S1-S3 pupils creating a series of large mosaics with the Scottish artist Alan Potter (for display at GHS). Pupils will also be working with Scottish artist Kate Leiper to create illustrations for an illustrated brochure about the heritage sites and the Roman presence in Cumbernauld. The grant will also provide materials for Roman-themed printmaking, illustration and pottery activities for hundreds of S1-S6 pupils at GHS, and staff and pupils at GHS are also looking forward to creating some artworks with pupils at Redburn School. Everyone is excited about showcasing the project at the local Cumbernauld Museum and in special exhibitions at GHS throughout the next year, engaging the local community with their heritage.
See the GHS pupils create a range of mosaics in the video below.

As you are aware the entrance to the new Greenfaulds High School is situated off the A73. We appreciate that pedestrian access to the school is limited but hope this will dramatically improve with the completion of the second phase scheduled for August.
Whilst it is convenient for some parents to pick up and drop off pupils in the vicinity of Scott Drive there has been a number of safety concerns raised due to the high volume of pupils and traffic in this area.
We would encourage and appreciate if parents could use the A73 access as the segregated bus bays and drop off points provide a safe and controlled environment particularly at the start and end of the day.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
An Open Evening for pupils currently in P7 (and their families) will be held in Greenfaulds High School at 7.00pm on the evening of Thursday 17th November.
This is an informal event and there is no need to inform the school in advance that you are coming. Pupils and their parents will “follow a timetable” which will allow you to see around the school and meet teachers and pupils. You will find out about the curriculum and about the many other activities on offer to pupils.
Car parking will be available but the school is likely to be very busy on the evening so you are advised to come early.
I look forward to seeing you on the 17th November but please do not hesitate to contact me in advance if you have specific queries or requirements.
Eileen McLoughlin, DHT S1
As you are aware the entrance to the new Greenfaulds High School is situated off the A73. We appreciate that pedestrian access to the school is limited until the second phase of the sporting facilities are complete and that some parents may be choosing to drop their children off in the vicinity of Scott Drive.
We would encourage and appreciate if parents could use the A73 access as the segregated bus bays and pupil drop off points provide a safe and controlled environment for dropping off and picking up pupils particularly at the start and end of the school day.
We would ask if parents do use Scott Drive and the surrounding vicinity if they could please be considerate of local residents and not block driveways or access points to streets
Thanks you in advance for your cooperation.
