P          Fairtrade Club         

The Fairtrade Club meets every Tuesday lunchtime in Mr Sharp`s Art room, B112 at 1:30 and runs a tuck shop selling Fairtrade goods to pupils in the street during Wednesday interval and to the teachers during Wednesday lunchtimes. All profits go to charity and all S1-S6 are welcome to get involved buying, selling and organising the mobile tuck shop. Come and help make the world a fairer place through enterprise and it`s also good for your C.V.

P          Skill Scotland           

Any pupil who was given a consent letter for the Skills Scotland Event at the SECC in November and has not returned it, please do so by next week. If you have misplaced this letter, please see me. I have other pupils who are asking to go so your place maybe given away if you do not get the consent form in.

P          Summer School                   

Every summer 100 successful S5 Scottish pupils attend a week-long residential summer school at Strathclyde University. The programme for the week is made up of a mix of lectures, labs and workshops on a space theme and it is delivered by academics and researchers from the Faculty, as well as visiting NASA representatives.

Following the week, 10 of the students are chosen for a once in a lifetime visit to NASA’s Johnson Space Centre in Houston, Texas.

The application process opens in the next few weeks but a variety of information can be found at:


If any pupil is interested in this, please see Miss Young.

P          EMA – S5/6

EMA application forms can be collected from Miss Lee or downloaded from the South Lanarkshire Council website. On the Council website, click on ‘Education and Learning’, then ‘Secondary School Information’, then ‘Education Maintenance Allowance’.  If you need any help with this, please see Miss Lee.

It is your responsibility to complete and send the application form.

When you receive an award letter with your EMA number on it, bring this to Miss Lee who will then issue a copy of the Learning Agreement to be signed by your teachers and Parent/Guardian.  You should then return the completed Learning Agreement to Miss Lee and the school office will then process your EMA.

Only when you have completed all of the above will the payment process begin.  Please see Miss Lee if you have any questions about EMA.
