Health and Wellbeing – Another Success Story!!

We are delighted to announce that following a visit by a panel of judges we have been awarded Level 3 accreditation for Health Promoting Schools.

The panel met with staff, students and the Chair of our Parent Council and were impressed by everything they saw and heard.  On the tour of the school they commented that this was not like other secondary schools they visited and could not quite believe the quality of display work around the corridors.

Thanks to the Health and Wellbeing Group (and Liz Nicoll in particular) for putting together the submission.

Lothian and Borders Police – Youth Strategy

Lothian and Borders Police are about to rewrite their Youth Strategy and
want to hear from young people about how they feel police should respond
to issues and what they would expect from police.  The session will take
place on Tuesday 5 January 2010 from 10.30am to 3pm at The Performing
Arts Centre, Stewarts Melville College, Queensferry Road, Edinburgh.

This is an exciting opportunity and the first time the police have
actively involved young people in working together to develop strategy.
What you say will influence what the police include in this strategy so
this really is your opportunity to make a difference.
