Yesterday was a successful day for the staff in the football match against the S6 team with a comfortable 5-1 victory. Mr Gilholm slotted a penalty away, Mr Wands scored a screamer into the top corner from the edge of the box and Mr Crawford completed a perfect hat-trick. The S6's got a late consolation goal before the referee blew the final whistle. Thanks to all staff and pupils for taking part and to those who came down to support the game.

Have you considered signing up to the MySQA Service?  This allows you the opportunity to receive examination results by SMS or email on the day rather than waiting for the post.  You can also confirm that your personal details are up-to-date including your address.

The SQA website (includes past papers and marking instructions) and Understanding Standards website are also useful resources for examination preparation.

All S4-6 pupils should have received a letter about exam leave from their Registration Teachers last week. Please see them if you don't have a copy.

Pupils were also issued a leaflet about MySQA. By signing up to this pupils will receive their results by text or email by 8am on 8th August.

Please could Registration teachers encourage as many pupils as possible to sign up to this!

Many thanks

The fire drill yesterday was a success with everyone being out of the building in under 4 minutes.
Could all pupils remember to leave the building quickly and quietly (not chatting and sauntering along), and be aware of where their nearest fire exit is?
Thank you.

After school, staff will take on the S6 pupils out the back of the school in an epic football match. Everyone is welcome to come along and watch the game (as long as you are supporting the teachers)!!


Thanks Mr MacDonald
