Farewell and Thank You to Mrs Lowe
We will be very sorry to say goodbye to Mrs Lowe as she leaves on Monday.  Mrs Lowe has been the Guidance teacher/Pupil Support Leader for Tiree house for many years and has been there for pupils to guide them through the highs and lows of life at Gracemount.  Mrs Lowe works long and hard to get the best for all pupils and will be greatly missed.  She has built strong links with many of our families over the years and I am sure you will all join me in thanking her and wishing her well in the future.

Ms Livingston has been appointed as Acting Pupil Support Leader and will take over from Mrs Lowe to work with pupils in Tiree house.  I am delighted to welcome her to the pupil Support Team.

Great Start to the Term
The significant majority of pupils have made a very positive start to the term. Our standard of dress is very high and late coming is significantly reduced. I’ve been very impressed with behaviour in classes and across the whole school and our challenge is to ensure that our high expectations, which lead to us maintaining our high standards are maintained.

Well done everyone!
Mr Hunter

PE Kit
All pupils are reminded that they require a full change of kit for PE, Dance and Football Academy.  This means a change of top, bottoms and appropriate shoes.

No pupil should, at any time, be arriving at school in their PE kit.  This includes morning and after break/lunch. 
Mr Gregor

Careers Academy
S5 – all S5 pupils who are still keen to apply for Career Ready should return their application forms to Mr Gregor ASAP.

S6 – your next master class “Get Ready for your Future Career”, will take place next Friday from 1:30 – 3pm, in the Library.
Mr Gregor


Information for Instrumental Pupils
All lesson times are displayed on the music noticeboard so please make sure you take a note of them and record it in your music diary.  If you need a new diary then please see Ms Kerr.  Remember you must show your diary to your class teacher and have it signed before attending your lesson.

Any questions then see Ms Kerr.
