P Christmas Fair
Our Christmas Fair will take place on Saturday, 24th November. If you would like to help with the planning, organisation or on the day, please let Miss Lee know. Stalls will also be available to hire to guests for a donation of £10 to the School Fund. Thank you to everyone for donating tombola and raffle prizes and for all your help with the organisation of the event. Tickets are on sale or can be purchased on the day: £2.50 for adults, and £1 for school aged children and concessions. We look forward to seeing you there!
P Blazer Exchange
We would love to receive donations of any unwanted items of school uniform, particularly school blazers, so that we can provide a ‘blazer exchange’. When we have sufficient stock, we hope to offer students the opportunity to exchange their blazer for a new size. If we don’t have your size available, a token would be given meantime. Please note: It would be helpful if blazers were washed before they are donated so that we can arrange the exchange quickly.
P EMA – S5/6
EMA application forms can be collected from the School Office 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 Mr Gray or your Pupil Support Teacher.
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 Mr Gray if you have any questions about EMA.
