The first of our three charity presentations took place this week. A cheque for £750 was presented to the pupils’ chosen local charity, Strathcarron Hospice. We were delighted to welcome Jim Brown from Strathcarron, to receive the cheque and Jim also shared a video of the hospice’s work, with pupils in S3 and S4.
The campaign for the Kilsyth Academy Mock Election is now well underway and we look forward to hearing the outcome of the voting, early next week.
There was a good turnout of pupils at the various Easter School tutorials, held between 4th and 7th April. We hope that this will have helped pupils with their preparation for the forthcoming examinations.
Letters and personal timetables have been issued to pupils who will be sitting SQA examinations, during May and June. Study Leave, for S4, S5 and S6 pupils sitting SQA examinations, will be from 3rd May until 3rd June (both dates inclusive). Pupils who have no examinations will not have Study Leave and will be expected to attend school, during this time.
The Parent Council will meet on Thursday 28th April, at 7.00 p.m., in the school. Congratulations to Matt Bendoris, the new Chair of our Parent Council. New members are always welcome.
