Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you have had a lovely week. We have been busy preparing for activities for our junior pupils next week and then the new timetable starts for all pupils on Tuesday 7th June.
A quick reminder that school is closed for pupils on Thursday 2nd or Friday 3rd June due to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and is also closed on Monday 6th June as all schools have an in service day.
Today’s update has 5 notices:
We hope you all have a relaxing weekend,
Miss Claire Meakin
Our new timetable will begin on Tuesday 7 June. We will be running a series of assemblies to update pupils on college and other arrangements. We are hoping to keep any subject changes to a minimum as the timetable settles, but we recognised that after pupils receive their results, changes may be required and further details on how this will work will follow shortly.
S5/6 Learner Agreement
All S5 and S6 pupils will be required to sign a learner's agreement at the start of the new session, and I will be asking parents to sign this as well. The learner's agreement will be given to S5/6 pupils as a hard copy on the first day of the new term. The agreement will be a two-way document with clear expectations of the attitude and work ethic we expect from S5 and S6 learners but also what pupils in S5/6 should expect from the Kirkwall Grammar School.
