CAREER READY – Career Ready is an exciting opportunity for (new) S5 students to gain experience in the workplace and make some professional contacts.  It is a two year programme that you graduate from and receive a certificate.  There is a 4-week employment placement at the end of the first year.  I have asked guidance teachers for names of students that could benefit from this programme.   Please could you come to a short meeting with Miss Brownhill on Thursday lunchtime at 1.30pm in F08 (Music) to find out more about the programme.  However if your name is not on the list and you think you might be interested then please do come along!

CHALLENGE WEEK – AMELIE – If you are going to see ‘Amelie, the musical’ with Miss Brownhill and Mrs Anderson on Wednesday 26th June, please come and collect a letter about the trip asap.

S5/6 – Challenge Week – Please can all new S5 and S6 pupils check your Challenge Week activities carefully with your tutor over the next few days and come to see me if there are any discrepancies – wrong activity or no activity for either / both days.

I’m available before school, at break time, at the start of lunch and most days straight after school.

Note that only Mr Hamilton can authorise changes at this late stage. Do not speak to anybody else as they won’t be able to help you.

I will be unable to make any changes for seniors after Friday 14th June. The deadline for new S2 to S4 has now passed so no more changes.

A reminder that you’ll have to touch base with your group leader to fill in a KIC permission form and arrange any payment via ParentPay asap. No KIC, no payment = no go !

  1. If you are due to be on holiday or just planning to not come in for one or both of the days, please send a letter in to the office to confirm and authorise this. Thank you
