East Lothian S6 Challenge 2008 – PLHS triumph again!

The annual East Lothian Outdoor Education S6 challenge was held on 28th November at Yellowcraigs. Following the tremendous success of the Preston Lodge teams in the 2007 challenge the pressure was on the current sixth year to rise to the challenge.

Rise to the challenge they did and for the second consecutive year the Preston Lodge team brought home the Silver Salver Trophy as winners of the 2008 event.

Well done to all that took part and to the Preston Lodge teams for competing so well.

The S4 pupils will begin their diet of Prelim Examinations on the 12th November. Pupils will sit examinations in most but not all subjects at this time.

Many of our S4 Intermediate courses will not have Prelim examinations until February. A copy of the timetable can be downloaded here.

All pupils should confirm with subject teachers which examinations they are to sit, and take a careful note of the times of these exams.

Industrial Action: Wed 24th Sept – School OPEN

We have received notification that members of Unison, GMB and T & G Unite will undertake industrial action against the proposed Local Government pay offer. This action is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 24th Sept 2008.

It is likely that non-teaching members of staff may undertake strike action. While this dispute does not involve teaching staff, the industrial action may impact on the service we deliver to pupils.

Pupils should attend school as normal on Wednesday, please be aware that lunches are unlikely to be provided except for those who are entitled to free meals. Pupils should bring a packed lunch which can be consumed in the Dining Hall.

Contingency plans have been put in place to ensure that pupils are able to access the school as usual. Please ensure that your children are sent to school on Wednesday 24th September.
