The next HT briefing will be on Friday 19th March. Following the briefing on 5th March please find information about the e-Sgoil offer for March which should be used to supplement home learning. It is important to note that many of our Faculties have agreed to continue to set work for pupils when they are not in school. The volume of work set will be less than has been set to date to take into account the time pupils are in school.

The next Head Teacher update will be posted on Friday 5th February. This week a letter from Mr Drennan has been issued about Mental Health Week. Please #Participate and enjoy the activities.

It has been really good to engage directly with year groups in online assemblies this week. Next week we will hold assemblies for S5/6 (Wed) and S4 (Fri) year groups only. These assemblies will focus on SQA matters.
