My blog this week is shorter than usual but the 3 things noted are I hope of interest:

  1. Open evening: On Wednesday 18th September our Parent Council are combining their September meeting with an open evening at the school (6.30-8.00 pm).  Although we have sent out invitations to our junior pupils, via group call, the response to date has been very low.  We are not only going to have people in almost all our departments on hand to give you an outline of what learning is like in the department we will also have a range of other people on hand to offer you advice on careers, teenage health issues, support for learning and support for parents.  We hope to have a good turn out on Wednesday and even if you have not let us know in advance we would be happy to see you for all or part of the evening.
  2. Holiday:  Friday 20th and Monday 23rd September are holidays and the school will be closed on these dates.  Other key dates are posted elsewhere on the website.
  3. Reports:  Our calendar indicates we will be issuing the S1 reports soon.  Due to a delay in us being able to set up the system I have decided to give staff a little bit more time to do the early S1 report.  These will now be issued along with the S2 and S3 reports on 8th October.  Apologies for the delay.
