Kilsyth Academy News – 30/09/16

The Parent Council is hosting a Parent Workshop entitled ‘Is Your Child Safe On-Line?’. It will take place on Thursday 6th October, at 7.00 p.m. and will be led by a member of Police Scotland. We are hoping for a large turnout of parents to hear about this very important issue. During the evening, there will be a short AGM of the Parent Forum. This will also be the next meeting of the Parent Council.

S4 Tracking Reports have been issued, together with invitations to the S4 Parents’ Evening, on Tuesday 11th October, from 4.15 – 6.45 p.m. (not 4th October, as stated last week). This will be an opportunity for teachers and parents to discuss targets for the year ahead and jointly support pupils to achieve their potential.

Once again, we were successful in securing places on the Lessons from Auschwitz programme, organised by the Holocaust Education Trust. Last week, Karis Abercrombie and Iona Brownlie, accompanied by Mrs Dunn, spent a day in Poland, visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau, in preparation for taking forward a project, within the school. Everyone found the trip to be a very moving experience.

S1 pupils attended a theatre production and workshop, led by the Kickstart Theatre Group, aimed at reinforcing a Smoking Prevention culture, among young people.

Congratulations to six new prefects, who were appointed recently – Adam Boyd, Rhona Boyle, Evan McKillop, Allan McRae, Alanna Paton and Rebecca Stevenson.

Three of our S3 pupils, Alec Gentleman, Carly McLaughlin and Amy Wilson, represented Kilsyth Academy at the first day of this year’s Dragons’ Lair competition, which focuses on Enterprise activities. We wish them every success with their ambitious ideas.

Thanks to our two pipers, Kieran McCann and Luke Shearer, for participating in the opening of the new Greenfaulds High School, in Cumbernauld.

The school will close for the October week, on Friday 14th October, at 2.55 p.m., and will re-open on Monday 24th October, at 8.55 a.m. Friday 14th will also be a non-uniform day, to raise money for the pupils’ chosen charities.
