Kilsyth Academy News – 19/02/16

Question TimeS5 and S6 pupils participated in an excellent Question Time event last week, featuring politicians from all the main political parties – Jamie Greene (Scottish Conservatives), Ross Greer (Scottish Greens), Mark Griffin MSP (Scottish Labour), Katy Gordon (Scottish Liberal Democrats) and Jamie Hepburn MSP (Scottish National Party). The panel was ably chaired by Mrs Carol McPherson, Education Support Officer at North Lanarkshire Council. Pupils chose a number of topical issues to ask questions about, in advance, and were also happy to pose questions from the audience. Our thanks to everyone who gave of their time to support the event – it is greatly appreciated by the school and the young people achieved greater political understanding from the event. Thanks too to Blair Anderson (S6) and his team, for organising the event, as part of the SQA Leadership Award. Well done!

Our second group of S3 pupils enjoyed a great week of challenge and adventure at the Outward Bound Centre, at Loch Eil. The group participated in a wide variety of activities, alongside pupils from other North Lanarkshire schools. Many thanks to Mr Urquhart for accompanying the group.

On Monday 29th February, there will be an Information Evening for parents of pupils in S2. This will centre on choices of subjects for S3 and implications for National Qualifications in S4. The meeting will be in the school assembly hall, starting at 7.00 p.m.

The Parent Council will meet on Thursday 3rd March, at 7.00 p.m., in the school and new members are most welcome.
