The S4/S5/S6 prelims are in full swing and parents will receive reports during February, together with recommendations for final presentation levels. Supported Study continues and it is vital that pupils take full advantage of this extra support, which is available at lunchtimes and after school.
Our S3 Parents’ Meeting will be on Thursday 2nd January, from 4.15 – 6.45 p.m. and we hope that this event will be well supported. It is an excellent opportunity for parents and teachers to discuss progress and agree priorities for the remainder of S3. S3 pupils should be making individual appointments with their class teachers.
Congratulations to ‘Born and Raised’ who achieved third place at the ‘Rockfest Battle of the Bands’ event, at Motherwell Concert Hall. Well done to Ross Quinn (guitar & vocals), Rachel Griffin (keyboard & vocals), Archie Grant (keyboard), Courtney Campbell (drum kit) & Cameron Comrie (bass).
To help support a local initiative, our pupils are collecting clothes and shoes that are suitable for use by the Serbian Red Cross, for distribution to refugees passing through Serbia, Northern Greece and Iraq. The ‘Kilsyth Supporting Refugees’ group will uplift the items from us at the end of this month. Pupils are asked to bring items to school, between Friday the 20th and Friday 27th January, and hand them in at the Reception, at the start of the school day. We hope that this collection is well supported.
The mid-term holiday will be on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th February and there will also be an in-service day on Wednesday 15th February. The school will therefore be closed to pupils on these three days.
The Parent Council will meet on Thursday 2nd February, at 7.00 p.m., in the school.
