    Dear Parents/Carers

    The next few days will be of huge importance to our senior phase pupils awaiting their SQA results, can I once again, wish them all every success.  The senior management team will be present in school on Tuesday 5th August, should any pupils or parents require advice or support .  Pupils return to school at 8.50 on Monday 18th August and staff return on Friday 15th August.  Can I also remind all parents of the new start and finish times which appear on this website.  We will be publishing an August newsletter early in term to showcase more pupil achievements and news as we enter the new term and as always, please keep us advised of your child’s successes.  A school twitter feed will commence early in term and many thanks to all parents who have provided us with email addresses to speed up our communications systems with parents and reduce outgoing paper communications.  I look forward to working with you all again in the new academic year and hope that you have had a wonderful Summer break.   Please do not hesitate to get in touch, should you have any queries in advance of the new term.
