Are you an S4-S5 student interested in pursuing a career in medicine? If so the Medic Insight Day Event will be on Saturday 26th April at George Watson’s College, Edinburgh. Medic Insight is a unique platform run by medical students at the University of Edinburgh with the support of NHS Lothian doctors, which aims to give school pupils a real insight into a career in medicine and life as a medical student. Our day event is an interesting and highly informative event, involving a series of talks from guest speakers followed by workshops for hands-on experience. The registration form is now OPEN and can be accessed via www.medicinsight.com under the heading of “Edinburgh Day Registration”. Registration is advised as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
The Pupil Support Department welcomes Miss Kay Grant from Woodlands School in Edinburgh as a new full time support teacher to replace Mrs Lawson, who retired at the February break. Miss Grant will continue to support the classes and young people who were previously part of Mrs Lawson’s remit, as well as some of Mrs Barlow’s as she has reduced her hours at NBHS. Mrs Barlow is now in school on a Monday, Thursday and Friday and her support commitments are being changed to reflect this. Letters will be sent home to the parents/carers of the young people who are supported by Miss Grant and Mrs Barlow informing you of any changes. Please contact C Andrews, PT Pupil Support (Learning) if you have any concerns.
