After the S1 assembly, classes 1P1, 1P2, 1P3 and 1P4 should remain in the Hall, where individual photographs will be taken.  Please could their period 1 teachers, Miss Auchnie, Mrs Brownlee an Ms Gordon go to the main hall at the start of period 1 to assist pupils, to line up in registration class groups, in alphabetical order? Once all completed, pupils should return to their period 1 classrooms.

Volunteers required for tuck shop

We are very lucky to have a group of parents who organise and run our Saturday morning tuck shop, providing drinks and snacks for visiting schools who come to play hockey and rugby.

In order to make this happen, we are looking for more volunteers. It is not a big commitment, usually one or two Saturdays throughout the season. The more volunteers we have, the fewer mornings everyone has to do.

It is a great asset to the school, and helps to strengthen the school ethos. Many visiting schools comment on how lucky we are to have such a great set-up.

If you could help out, or would like more information, please contact Eileen Ramsay on Eileenjohnramsay@aol.com
