Parental Letter 25 October 2017

Dear Parent / Carer

It was lovely to welcome the pupils back today after the October break.

Last term was a busy one and it was great to see our S1 out enjoying the S1 residential at three different centres, our S4 out doing their work experience and the Duke of Edinburgh group working on their outdoor skills at Lochgoilhead centre.

I am also pleased to share that we have been awarded the Sport Scotland Silver award for physical activity. A huge congratulations to all the staff, parents, coaches and helpers that made this possible.

We have a busy term ahead of us and the staff are all looking forward to working with the pupils in the coming weeks as we enter the winter term.
