World Book Day tokens (available from English teachers or the librarian if students haven’t yet received one) may be used to get a £1 discount off any book costing £2.99 or more. If the school takes in a certain amount, we receive free books for the school library. We have a leaflet available for students to take home, giving an online link to the catalogue of books available. Any parents or carers who would like to see or buy books, are welcome to come to the library between 4pm and 5pm on Tuesday 21st to do so.

Seasons for Growth is an peer support educational programme which aims to promote the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people coping with significant loss and change in their lives, usually as a result of death, separation or divorce. Marie Prior, Enhanced Support Officer, will be offering this programme to a group of S1 and S2 students after the Easter holidays. However programmes for other year groups can be organised if there is enough demand. If you think that your child could benefit from this programme please encourage them to speak to their guidance teacher or Marie or contact us directly.
