Canoe pool sessions.


Want to learn to paddle a kayak?                                                           
Looking for an activity for your Duke of Edinburgh award?

Why not try kayaking in the comfort of Prestonpans swimming pool.

Beginners lessons are offered in blocks of 5 (1 a week) and take place on a Friday afternoon (12:15 – 1:15)

Cost – Only £10 for the 5 lessons (£2 each!)

We have 3 blocks of lessons available between now and the summer holidays and places are now filling up fast due to the heavily subsidised cost.

See Mr Kiernan, Mr Frost or Mr Kidd for a letter ASAP!

All money and consent forms, please return to Mr Kiernan.

EMA forms

EMA forms were issued in October to all pupils who are 16 between 1 October and 28 February and eligible from January.  The forms are to be returned by 28 February 2010 if payment is to be backdated to the start of term.  Could all students that this is applicable to, please ensure that they return their forms promptly.

Out-of-school-hours Learning Booklet

All pupils should have received a copy of the out-of-school-hours booklet via their Register Teacher.  A copy is also available via the school website.  Students should see the named teacher for further information.  Make the most of the opportunities to develop a new skill, raise your attainment, make new friends and have fun!   See Mrs Scott for further information.

Duke of Edinburgh – News.


A great response from the current S3 in getting involved. Anyone still interested or with money outstanding should get this handed in by Monday afternoon (28th September).

We will be having a meeting at lunchtime on Wednesday 7th October in Mr Kidd’s room. Hopefully the logbooks will be with us. To help us allocate you a staff mentor, please think about getting a group together of you and your friends (up to a maximumof 7 pupils). We will do our utmost to accommodate you in friendship groups.


Two small groups are out on practice expedition next week (1st – 3rd October) with a few finally being assessed after being snowed off in the Spring last year! Please ensure you get a staff permission sheet from Mr Kiernan and approach your teachers for ‘appropriate discussions’.

Likewise, any other pupils interested should get logbook fee into a member of the team before Monday 28th September. A short meeting will be held in Mr Kiernan’s room after your return from work experience. Watch this space.


A lot of pupils have expressed an interest in participating but there have been few uptakes on this. A short meeting will be held in Mr Kidd’s room at break-time on Tuesday 29th September to finalise the participants list.

Pre-vocational courses

All students involved in college courses are reminded that they should leave class at 12pm, get lunch and be ready to leave on the bus at 12.30pm today.
