There are still some tickets available for our annual Christmas Concert, which will take place on Thursday 11th December, at 7.15 p.m. They can be purchased from the Music department or the School Office, priced £5 for adults and £3 for concessions. This includes tea or coffee and a mince pie. We hope that a large number of people will come along to support the pupils and to enjoy an evening of Christmas entertainment.

Collections of gifts for the Kilsyth Community Food Bank are also now well underway. In particular, we have been asked to collect: Salmon, Tuna, Shloer/Fruit Juice, Chocolates, Tinned Ham, UHT Milk, Puddings, Cheese, Crackers. Butter/margarine, Toiletries. Other acceptable items, however, include: Soup, pasta sauce, tinned stew/mince/ curry, smoked sausage, Frey Bentos pies, super noodles/pot noodles, pasta ‘n’ sauce, jam. Members of the Pupil Council are happy to collect the items, in the café, every morning interval until 15th December.

Supported Study for pupils in S4 – S6, continues to operate during lunchtimes and after school. This is a great opportunity to help pupils prepare for the forthcoming prelims, which will run from 19th to 30th January. Pupils sitting National 5, Higher or Advanced Higher will also be issued with homework to be completed over the Christmas holiday. This will help them with revision for these very important examinations.
