I am writing to express my thanks for your support during lent as we attempted to raise a great deal of money for Lentern Charities. I don’t know the full total as yet, but I do know that The Penny Wars raised £650 in one week and our focus on Autism Awareness raised over £1000 last week. Pupils have been donating monies to the “Wee Boxes” all during Lent. As well as this, we have had a sponsored 24 hour Fast and a number of other fund raising activities. I will inform you of the total amount raised after Easter.
As you know, Easter is early this year and we finish up on Thursday at 3.15pm for the long weekend, incorporating Good Friday as well as Easter Monday. All pupils return to school on Tuesday 29th March. Pupils should be in attendance until Friday 1st April. The school will close at 2.30pm on that day. Pupils should not leave earlier than 2.30pm.
Our Easter School for pupils sitting exams begins on Monday 4th April for 2 days. The school re-opens for all on Monday 18th April 2016.
If you are the parent/carer of a pupil sitting exams, could you please ensure that their time is spent profitably studying, particularly during the two week holiday. The results of pupils who put in a great deal of effort will certainly be improved upon. We have a very good track record in the Nationals, Highers and Advanced Highers and I am sure that pupils this year will perform very well indeed. I wish them every success in the exams ahead.
Dates of school closures:
- Closes Thursday 24th March at 3.15pm
- Reopens Tuesday 29th March at 8:50am
- Closes Friday 1st April at 2:30pm
- Re-opens Monday 18th April at 8:50am
SQA exams begin Thursday 5th May.
I hope you have a very enjoyable weekend with your family.
