    Dear Parents/Carers 

     

     

    Can I thank you for continuing to maintain excellent attendance levels of your children during this particularly cold spell.  A huge thank you also for the excellent attendance at the prelim examinations during this time, which come to a close over the next few days. 

     

    Next week is a particularly busy week as we launch our Holocaust Memorial Assemblies, taken by Amy Wallace and Rosalea Beattie in S6, who recently visited Auschwitz and will be reporting back to all pupils on the experience.  Amy and Rosalea will also be taking part in the East Ayrshire Holocaust Memorial Day service in London Rd on the 27th January. 

    Thursday 29th Jan is the first of our welcome evenings for our new p7 parents at 6pm, followed by our Parent Council meeting at 7.15pm.  I would wish to advise that all new members to Parent council are very welcome indeed.

     

    We will shortly be launching some parent and community engagement events to assist us with the whole-school "Getting It Right For Every Child" self-evaluation and also our forthcoming S1-3 curriculum review.  I will post further details on this site and also send group texts and tweets to advise of these events.  I really hope that parents, community leaders and employers will join us to help in evaluating our current supports and practice and influence our future thinking. 

    I am also presently organising an "Internet Safety" event for parents which I expect to announce in February. 

     

    Our School Of Rugby formal announcement has now taken place and we are now in talks with the SRU regarding how we best develop the sport and pupils within this new scheme.  I look forward to giving further details at the p7 evening next week. 

    In the meantime, can I thank you and your pupils for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you in the near future at our future events and consultations.
