P7 Three day visit Tuesday 16 – Thursday 17 June 2015
Next week we will welcome the P7 pupils who will be joining us as S1 in August.  They are all very excited about coming to High school and I would ask everyone to make them welcome. 

Please help them to find their way around school and remember that to them the school can feel a big and scary place. 

Please make sure you move around the school in an orderly fashion keep to the left in corridors and use the correct staircase.  You all have the opportunity to be positive role models to these younger pupils and I hope I can count on your help.
Thank you!
Ms Sinclair


Lunch Cards
A large number of pupils are forgetting to bring their lunch cards on a regular basis. Whilst the office staff do not want you to go hungry they do not have the time or resources to keep supplying you with your number.  With large queues of pupils at break and lunchtime persistent offenders may have to be turned away by office staff so please remember to bring your card!!
