Weekly Update 19/01/18

S4 - S6 Prelim Exams

A reminder that general study leave will run from Monday 22nd January until Friday 2nd February 2018 and during this period pupils need attend school only to sit their examinations.  Individual arrangements may be made for those pupils who have very few / no exams.  Pupils may come in to school to study, but should be wearing school uniform and always sign in at the School Office.

Senior Course Choices for 2018/19

Any pupil moving on into S4 - S6 has the option to select a course from Borders College to add to their timetable.  These choices will be made in March 2018, however you can start to plan ahead now.  Read the booklet via the below link to find out more or speak to Miss Roden in the Pastoral Department for more info:

Maths Newsletter - January 2018

Please see newsletter attached below.

Road Crossing @ Angraflat

Please can I remind all our young people that they must use the traffic light crossing that is provided when leaving the school grounds.  It has been noted, from members of our community, that it is mostly our senior pupils are not using the designated crossing and instead manoeuvre through the parked cars in the pick-up areas.  This is a real concern, due to the time of the night, it is very busy and there are a lot of cars out with parking bays.  Visibility for anyone is very poor.

Resilient Schools

In the case of bad weather and Resilient Schools being invoked, KHS will be open for S1 to S3 pupils only.  Transport will not run on a Resilient School day therefore bus pupils should not be brought in by parents as staffing is based on pupils who can walk to school only.

Biking to/from School

A reminder now we are into the dark mornings and evenings that children stay safe when biking to and from school.  Please ensure bikes have front and back lights and pupils are wearing appropriate protective wear and can be seen by motorists.

Keep Kelso / KHS Tidy!

Pupils are reminded to respect both their school and their community and ensure that they use rubbish bins provided around school and the town to dispose of any litter.  If anyone has any suggestions on how we can promote this to stop littering please contact KHS at [email protected].
