Weekly Update 18/11/16

Parking

Please can we ask parents/carers to be mindful of other road users when either dropping off or picking up our young people from the School.  There have been a number of concerns reported especially on Bowmont Street.  Another reminder, that there is parking at both the front and back of the school during a Parent Engagement Evening.

Updated Media Consents Form

All pupils were given a new media consents form this week which is to be completed and returned to the School by 2nd December 2016.  Following the introduction of new legislation SBC have had to revise this form and reissue to all pupils.  Please ask your youngster for this form, complete and hand back in as required.  A copy of the form is attached below.

Equestrian

Please see attached below a copy of the article from The Scotsman newspaper on 8th November regarding the great achievements of the Equestrian Team at the recent NSEA Championships.

Hockey

A great morning of hockey in the sunshine was had by all at Shedden Park last Saturday.  First thing the S2A team took on Firhill.  Great team effort to create lots of scoring opportunities and a thoroughly deserved 5-0 win after 50 minutes.  Next up the pupils took on the parents.  The oldies were strong and clinical, both in defence and attack and despite the best efforts of S2B and S2A teams parents won 5-0 and 2-0 respectively.  We then enjoyed bacon rolls and drinks at Woodside.  Thank you to Granny Jeans Home Bakery for providing the rolls and bacon and to Judith Younger and her helpers for arranging the food. Thank you to everyone who came along to support the hockey, it was very much appreciated.  Whether you were playing or spectating I am sure you will agree the games were great fun to play, very entertaining to watch and in the process we raised £84.72 towards S2 Perth Hockey Tour in May 2017 - well done J
