P Duke of Edinburgh – S4 pupils
In preparation for expedition we need to run a few training sessions. These will need to be on a Friday afternoon as I can’t have you missing valuable time in certificate subjects. The first session will be on the 9th of February starting at 1.30pm and will run for an hour. It is important that you do your best to attend these sessions as failure to do so will result in you not attending the expedition with the school. This is because you won’t have the proper health & safety training.
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.
