National 5 prelims are running really well with invigilators commenting on the excellent conduct and attitude of pupils in every exam. S4 pupils are taking the experience seriously, with lots of study groups happening in the social area.

I’d be grateful if you could take a look at this short survey to allow me to follow up after the holidays. From there, I will arrange some time to meet with volunteers to decide what changes, if any, we need to make to prize giving.
