    Dear Parents/Carers

    As we fast approach the end of another busy term, can I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year holiday. Thanks to all of you who attended our recent fashion show and I hope that many of you can also join us for our Christmas Concert on Tuesday 16th December at 7pm ( tickets from school office). We also have our S1/2 Christmas party on Monday 15th December at 7pm and hope that your child can attend. 

     

    School closes at 2.30pm on Friday 19th December and buses have been arranged for this time.  A soup and sandwich lunch will also be available to pupils at lunchtime. 

     

    Our newsletter is almost complete and I intend publishing this online early next week, I hope that you will enjoy seeing some of the fabulous achievements of our young people in this Christmas issue. 

     

    Having witnessed an issue recently, can I ask parents/ carers NOT to speed in and around the school car park at any time of day.  The dark mornings and evenings add further to the risk of injury and I have requested my campus officer to monitor this closely. 

     

    I have also sent home letters to S1/2 parents regarding a forthcoming survey that will be completed in school in the new year, I would ask that you give this your full attention. 

     

    Once again, my sincere thanks for your continued support of the young people of Loudoun Academy and I look forward to continuing to work with you as we return to 2015.
