As St Andrew’s Day approaches, some of our S1 classes would like to share a quiz that they have prepared in French to guess a Famous Scot. You can find their quiz questions (and answers!) here:
Test yourself and see how many you get right…bonne chance!
Please find details of the upcoming prelim diet here. While every effort has been made to ensure that pupils do not have concordant exams, there will be a few exceptions to this. Pupils who have two exams at the same time should see Mrs Moore to make the necessary rearrangements. Some subjects have prelims at other times of the year, due to their particular requirements, and teachers have made these times and dates clear to pupils.

We want to get it right for every child and young person
The East Lothian Council Community Planning Children’s Strategic Partnership (including health and the voluntary sector) wants as many people as possible to take part in the consultation on its draft plan for services for and about children, young people and families in East Lothian. The plan sets out proposals for improving outcomes for children and young people’s health and wellbeing in East Lothian over the next three years.

SALSUS (the Scottish Schools Adolescent Lifestyle and Substance Use Survey) has been running since 1982 with the purpose of collating valuable information on young people’s lifestyle choices, in particular providing data on levels of smoking, drinking and drug use.
The Scottish Government has commissioned Ipsos MORI to undertake the 2015 wave of SALSUS.
To ensure that the results are as representative as possible, Ipsos MORI have randomly selected over 500 S2 and S4 classes from schools across Scotland to participate. At NBHS, the classes which have been selected are 2C1, 2L and 4L.
A letter with further information for parents, including the opportunity to opt out from the survey and an information sheet for the pupils involved will be handed out at registration tomorrow. If you wish for your child to opt out from the survey, please return the slip to the office by Tuesday 17th November at the latest.
