P          Mary’s Meals – Backpack Project

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated backpacks and other school items to our collection for Mary’s Meals – your generosity is greatly appreciated.  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 anyone else still needs to hand in a pre-loved backpack, please do so by the end of this week (13th September 2019). A representative from Mary’s Meals will collect your donations to support the work of the charity.  This also encourages recycling!

P          School Lockers

If you would like a school locker, firstly identify the number of the locker you would like to use.  Give your name and preferred locker number to the school office, who will check availability.  The school office can lend you a padlock for your locker or you can bring your own.

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.
