P P7 Visit days
We hope that our new S1 pupils enjoyed their visit to LHS. Thank you to all pupils who helped with the activities over the two days.
P St Andrew’s First Aid
We have received a letter from St. Andrew’s First Aid thanking you for your kind donation last term, when £306.48 was raised for the organisation. Thank you also to Jamie Gourlay, S6, who organised for the St Andrew’s First Aid team to come into the school and lead training on life-saving skills for S1 students and for organising the non-uniform day. The funds raised on the day also helped us to upkeep the resuscitation training equipment in the school for use with future groups.
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’. We would then hope to be able 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 are washed before they are donated so that we can arrange the exchange quickly.
P School Lockers
All school lockers should be emptied and padlocks removed by Friday, 8th June. Any padlocks that have been borrowed from the school should be returned, with their keys attached, to Miss Lee. Any padlocks that remain on lockers after this date will be removed and the contents destroyed.
P SQA Exams
The SQA Exams finish this afternoon (1st June) for Lesmahagow High School pupils. All new S5/6 students return to school on Monday, 4th June, when our new timetable begins.
P Job Vacancies
We have been advised of two fantastic job opportunities for school leavers in the local area:
- Trainee Accounts Assistant: ICW Accountancy Ltd in Lanark have a full time Trainee Accounts Assistant vacancy for a school leaver, 8.30 am – 5 pm, Monday to Friday. Full training will be given. If you are interested in this opportunity, please ask Miss Lee or your Pupil Support teacher for further information.
- Farming Apprenticeship: Mr Ballantyne, who has a dairy farm at Auchenheath, has an apprenticeship opportunity for a school leaver who is interested in farming. If you are interested in this opportunity, please ask Miss Lee or your Pupil Support teacher for further information.
P New Timetable
The new timetable will begin on Monday, 4th June 2018. New S5 and S6 students, who return to school after completing their exams, should report to the Street area at 8.45 am on Monday, 4th June, where new timetables will be issued.
P Young Musician of the Year
The Young Musician of the Year Concert takes place on Tuesday, 5th June, at 7 pm in the Street area. Thank you to all pupils who are participating in this event. Tickets costing £4 (concessions £2) are available from the School Office and Music Department.
P Duke of Edinburgh – Bronze Group
The rescheduled Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition to Auchengillan will now take place on Monday and Tuesday, 18th and 19th June. Participants should collect EV5s and letters from Miss Lee.
P Glasgow Science Centre
S1-S3: If anyone has still to return permission slips for the Glasgow Science Centre trip, please return it to Mrs Rae by Monday or your place will be allocated to someone else.
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.
