P          SCHOLAR Passwords

SCHOLAR passwords and usernames have been issued to S4-S6 students who are studying subjects supported by SCHOLAR. SCHOLAR is an on-line resource, developed by Heriot-Watt University, which provides study guides, activities, practice assessments and live tutorials for a range of subjects.  Resources are currently available to support the following subjects:

Research has shown that using SCHOLAR as part of your revision can increase students’ attainment by a full grade. 

Please see your Tutor teacher if you still need to collect your username and password.  If you have any questions about SCHOLAR, please see Miss Lee.

P          Mary’s Meals – Backpack Project

Thank you to everyone who has already donated a pre-loved backpack to our collection for Mary’s Meals.  The Mary’s Meals Backpack Project aims to give children who receive Mary’s Meals in Malawi the basic tools for learning.  Children are given a backpack full of stationery to help them to get the most out of school.  If you got a new school bag this summer and your old school bag could be used by someone else, please hand your old school bag or backpack into the school office by the end of August 2019. A representative from Mary’s Meals will collect these to support the work of the charity.  This also encourages recycling!

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 Robertson 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 Mr Robertson who will then issue a copy of the Learning Agreement to be signed by your teachers and Parent/Carer.  You should then return the completed Learning Agreement to Mr Robertson 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 Robertson if you have any questions about EMA.
