Weekly Update 02.06.2022

Dear Parents Carers,

Short but Sweet this week- Just like me!

The Queens Platinum Jubilee

I remember meeting the Queen in 1977 outside Kelvingrove Museum on the eve of her Silver Jubilee. I cant believe it is now the Platinum Jubilee and she has not been in contact with me. All the best Ma’am.

Just a reminder that school and nursery will be closed on Friday 3 June 2022 for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

We hope you have a lovely long weekend.

Dunbar Grammar School Open Morning – Saturday 11th June

After 2 years of COVID mitigations,  we are desperate to open our doors back up to parents and carers and offer an opportunity for the whole DGS community to reconnect.

We are therefore delighted to be able to host an Open Morning on Saturday 11th June from 10am – 12pm.  This will offer the opportunity for parents and carers to visit the school and have a student led tour around the building. The leadership team will also be on hand to answer questions and have a chat.
