In addition all S6 pupils will be involved in a full year group photograph.

There will be an opportunity for parents of new S1 pupils to request a family photograph with their siblings. Please fill in the tear off slip found in the parental letter at the bottom of the page and return it to the school office if you wish a family photograph.

The company providing the service this year is ColorFoto, they provide a fully integrated online system to order the photographs. The school would ask that parents order the photographs online, pupils are issued with these details on the day of the photo shoot. If this is not possible please contact the school office.

There is no obligation to buy but we do require all pupils to be photographed for school records. Pupils are expected to be in full school uniform for photographs and we would appreciate your continued support in this matter.
