Parent Council met for the first time this session at the AGM on Monday night. I gave a brief overview on SQA results this year and the badge holders were introduced to the group. The next meeting is 23rd September. Minutes from meetings are published on the school website.
This week, Mrs Denny and I met with our link from “Who Cares?” We planned our drop-in sessions for the year and S1 PSE inputs. We are waiting on details of Care Day 2020, during which we will be raising awareness of care experienced young people. Parent and staff sessions will also run this year so feel free to join us and learn more about what we can do to support our young people.
Yesterday the first meeting of the Student Council took place. We got some more new members which is fantastic! We will meet every second Monday during lunch to take forward the priorities of the council. The next meeting is Monday 2nd September and any other new members are more than welcome.
Today a group of S1 pupils took part in the first Freshen Up Friday of the session. This supports the work of Team Up 2 Clean Up and looks after our local community. They cleared the lane beside the school and made some headway into Durrockstock Park. Next month we will have an S2 pick. All pupils involved today got a platinum house token worth 50 points for their house. I was delighted with their efforts and my thanks to the S6 helpers who came out to join us.
The Malawi 2020 group had the July and August 50/50 draws today at lunchtime. Anyone wanting to join the 50/50 can contact the school office and from there be passed on to the appropriate member of staff.
