    Dear Parents/Carers

    A warm welcome back to all pupils following the October break and I hope that you all had a great October holiday.  We have had a busy first week back and this will continue as we progress through the packed Autumn term.  Pupils have attended an engagement with the Scotland Rugby Team, participated in the Scottish Schools Swimming Gala and we have also had huge success at the EAC Cross Country Championships.  Pupils in S1 had a visit from a rally driver talking them through how navigation is a key element of the sport, connected to their Geography studies.  We have a group attending the Skills development Scotland Careers Fair in Glasgow tomorrow and also a group attending the Army Careers fair in Prestwick later this week.  A new cohort of pupils have recently qualified as Pool Lifeguards and our heartfelt congratulations on such an excellent achievement.  All of these achievements can also be found on our Twitter Feed @LoudounAcademy.  Our Campus Officer, PC Kennedy, and the  other Campus Officers in EAC schools have organised the “ No Knives Better Lives” football tournament which takes place here on Weds 29th October – Good Luck Team Loudoun!

     

    We also have our S5/6 Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 4th November at 4.30 and our Parent Council meeting on Thu 6th November at 7.15.  Our mentoring programme for S4 also launches next week and we look forward to  continued success in supporting our pupils through the new exams. 

    Our Standards and Qualities report is also available from the school office upon request and I hope that you will find this highly informative. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any issues or queries.

     

    Kind Regards
