Key messages from this week

Calendar:  Students return to school on Tuesday 9th January 2024;  on Tuesday we’ll begin the next phase of the Course Choice process for S2 as they get ready for S3,  this will involve making subject choices and it will take a couple of weeks to see all in S2,  also on Tuesday all year groups will have a short Welcome Back Assembly;  the remainder of that week is normal classes and students and staff settling back into their learning and work

Staffing:  Today  we said a temporary farewell to Hazel Moar as she leaves us to begin her 23 month secondment as Education Support Officer at Midlothian Council. We also said farewell to Nina Galloway from our Youth Work Team.  Nina leaves us to take up a new opportunity.  

Cinderella:  Well done to our Performing Arts students and staff for Wednesday and Thursday night’s sell-out Panto, Cinderella. Our students,  your children, were phenomenal.  It was a fantastic way to end our term.

Free School Meals and Clothing Grants:  Midlothian Council have updated their website and asked us to share this with you click here.

Christmas Break: School breaks up today.  Students return to school on Tuesday 9th January 2024.  I hope you all have a fabulous festive season, thank you for your support of our school and all the best for 2024.
