On the 15th of January the NHS Scotland Team will be in school to deliver the HPV vaccine to all S1 girls and boys along with the S2 girls booster immunisation. High uptake of the HPV vaccine has reduced levels of cancer-causing HPV in young women in Scotland by 90%. From academic year 2019/20, the HPV vaccine will be offered to S1 boys as well. Consent packs containing a letter, leaflet and consent form will be distributed to pupils and their parents/carers in advance of the first HPV immunisation session. Consent will only be asked for once, and this will cover all required doses of the vaccine.

ART AND DESIGN DEPARTMENT
Twenty S1 pupils really enjoyed a special illustration talk and workshop on the theme of ‘How to draw a Dragon’ with Scottish illustrator and artist Kate Leiper on the 29th October. Kate showed the pupils lots of examples of her published work and gave them tips for illustrating children’s book characters. Pupils spent time creating their own dragon character and said that they found the event fun, interesting and inspirational. This event was part-sponsored by the Scottish Book Trust with their live literature funding. Check out the event on twitter @GHSArtdept
