    Dear Parents/Carers

    It has been a busy few weeks since the September weekend as we make our way towards the forthcoming October holiday.  Can parents also please note that we have an Inservice Day on Monday 20th October.  The pupils and staff have been involved in some outstanding events of late.  Last week Loudoun Academy came second in the East Ayrshire Enterprising Maths Competition and we now progress to the national finals at the Glasgow Science Centre in November.  Four pupils passed their Silver Duke Of Edinburgh Award last week, a phenomenal achievement, well done to Catriona Hoy, Charlotte Winning, Chris Ewing and Emma Kerr.

    Our rugby team won their very tough group at the Rugby 7’s tournament at Kilmarnock Rugby Club last week, but were unfortunately beaten in the final by Belmont Academy.   We have two pupils undertaking a visit to Auschwitz this week and these pupils will be reporting back to assemblies to share their experience. Our National 5 Geographers are off on a field visit today to Glasgow to study land usage.   Thanks to all parents who attended the “New Highers” evening and I hope that you found this useful, further parental engagement events will be run as the year progresses.

    I have asked the Parent Council to join form representation as we work towards UNICEF Rights Respecting School status, if any more parents are interested in joining our steering group for this, please let us know.

    Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and safe October holiday.
