The Transportation Department of East Lothian Council during recent checks of school transport contracts have noticed an increase in the amount of pedestrians using the school transport drop off/pick point/turning circle as a short cut and walking through the transport. There has also been an increase in parents bringing their own private cars into the area and weaving through the vehicles and pupils.
Could parents and non school transport users, please stay away from these areas 15 minutes before the bell and 15 minutes after to reduce the risk of a possible fatal accident. Thanks for your assistance.
All students in S4 and S5 should have received a letter about the coaching programme on offer. If they wish to participate in the programme they should return the yellow slip to their registration teacher or the school office by Tuesday 26 November.
We are looking for donations of raffle prizes for both the Stand Up to Cancer charity event next Tuesday and the Christmas concert on 16th and 17th December. This is a great opportunity for the school and local communities to help raise money for great causes both locally and nationally. If you can help please hand in any donations to me or the school office or email me at the following address.
Many thanks in anticipation of your support.

The annual Heriot Watt University Design Smash took place on Friday 15th November and was attended by a team from the Higher Geography class. David Singer, Kyle Sandilands, Mathew Douglas and Ryan Baillie were challenged with redesigning Leith Walk. As we were last years winners we had a lot to live up to and the team did an excellent job. However they were narrowly beaten by Wallace High School, Stirling. Congratulations to the boys for an excellent display of team work and application of geographical knowledge.
A reminder that the final school deadline for submission of UCAS applications is Friday 6 December. Students must have completed all sections of their applications and produced a final personal statement by this stage.
