Key messages from this week

October Break: A reminder that next week is our October break and that all Midlothian schools will remain closed on Monday 24 October as a replacement for Monday 19 September 2022. The staff only In-service day will now take place on Tuesday 25 October and students should return to school on Wednesday 26 October.   

Calendar:  On our first week back key events include Active Girls Day for our Senior Phase on Wednesday. Our P7/S1 Transition begins with our first in-person P7 Information Evening since 2019 on Wednesday.  Finally,  a selection of students will undertake PISA assessments on Thursday as part of the international study that compares the learning of students across a range of countries.  

Bonnyrigg & District Community Council:  The first meeting of this new group,  following the merging of two local community councils, was held this week.  The school, as a central part of the community,  will look to engage with the newly elected Office Bearers to plan and implement work to support our community.   We look forward to this opportunity.

Parent Council:  Thank you to all who were able to attend our meeting on Monday.   Sara Adam was confirmed as the new sole Chair of the Parent Council.   John French has stepped down as co-Chair after 12 years service.  Thank you to John for all his work.  There are still some roles available on the Parent Council for anyone able to support.  This includes Treasurer,  200 Club and also an opportunity to share the Chair role with Sara.  Please contact Sara via email, lasswade_hs@midlothian.gov.uk if you are able to help.

S2 Parents’ Evening:  Our first Video Parents’ Evening was held on Tuesday of this week.  We are keen to hear from those parents/carers who ‘attended’ via a short survey.  This allows us to learn for future evenings.  Please click here to submit your feedback.

Senior Phase Assessment Calendar:  Information relating to our Assessment Calendar is now live on our website and will be of interest to parents/carers of our S4/5/6 students.  To access information please click here
