Kilsyth Academy News – 24/04/15

Congratulations to Carly McLaughlin (1B) on being selected as the Chamberlain for this year’s Kilsyth Civic Week. Carly took part in an interview and performed a reading, prior to being selected from a field of candidates. We are delighted for her and wish her every success in the role.

Pupils in S4, S5 and S6, who are sitting SQA examinations, will be on Study Leave from Wednesday 29th April until Friday 29th May (inclusive). Pupils who have no examinations should continue to attend school throughout that period.

School show rehearsals are gaining momentum, as we prepare for our production of ‘Disco Inferno’, on 2nd, 3rd and 4th June. Tickets will be going on sale very soon, so please hold the date.

The Parent Council will be running a tombola at each of the Uniform Evenings, during the summer term. They would be grateful for any donations, towards prizes, and these can be handed in at the school reception desk, by 8th May.

The Parent Council will meet on Thursday 30th April, at 7.00 p.m., in the school.

The school will be closed on Monday 4th May and then Thursday 7th May will be an in-service day.

Plans for Easter School, from 13th to 16th April, have been communicated to all those who have enrolled. Tutorials are now full. Pupils in S4, S5 and S6 have received individual exam timetables, where appropriate and all pupils have received a letter outlining arrangements for Study Leave. Pupils who are not sitting examinations will not be entitled to Study Leave.

The Junior and Senior Inter-House Quizzes took place last week. In the Senior Quiz, Balmalloch and Dumbreck were 1st equal, Antonine were 3rd and Colzium was 4th. In the Junior event, 1st place went to Balmalloch, Antonine and Colzium were 2nd equal and Dumbreck took 4th place. Well done to all participants.

Congratulations to the many pupils whose achievements were recognised at our Celebration of Success Assembly, at the end of term. These successes were many and varied, highlighting the breadth of talent we have in Kilsyth Academy.

Happy Easter to all pupils, parents and friends of the school. We will re-open on Monday 20th April, at 8.55 a.m.
