Lost Property – There are blazers, PE kits, jackets, headphones and many other items in lost property in the Print Room. Please come along before the Christmas holiday to check if you think anything may be yours. Any items left after this date will be recycled!
Bring a Coin Advent Challenge- As part of our fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust we are asking all pupils, where possible, to bring in a coin a day for Advent- a reverse advent calendar! Any coin from 1p will be gratefully received and contribute to the work of this excellent charity. Malleny House Team & some helpers will be on each of the doors from 8.15 as you enter the school.

S4 Prelim Exams: – Can all S4 pupils who are taking exams next week please ensure they know their seat number before they enter the Drama Studio.This information will be available in the concourse, outside the canteen and at the reception area at the base of the stairs to Music the day before each exam.

What a Disaster 2 (The Sequel – Actions Have Consequences) ! – Due to certain S2 boys (again, you know who you are!) targeting certain other pupils by throwing sweets around the room I have had to take the regrettable step of postponing the Disaster Film Club for two weeks this time (you were warned of this last time). It will now resume on the 14th of December. If anything similar happens again, then this club’s future might be in jeopardy and not run for an extended period of time. Again I realise that the minority have spoiled it for the majority here but this is completely unacceptable. I should not have to ‘police’ my room during my lunch break! Staff members give up their valuable time to facilitate clubs like these at no cost to you. Please treat them with respect and consideration.
Naples, Italy trip: ParentPay is now up and running for deposits to be made.
