Staff from Johnstone High attended the launch of the new ‘Our Town’ initiative. Our Town has been launched by the Hearld and Evening Times newspapers and will give local people a service that will keep them updated of evenys and news within the Johnstone area.  Johnstone is the only town currently involved in the initiative and as a school we will create our own ‘channel’.  Parents will be given details of how they can register and it will allow instant alerts to your smart phone, tablet or desktop of events within the school such as parents evenings, newsletter and other events.

We will be using the service within the next few weeks to look out for details of how to register – assuming you haven’t already!
