GTCS - Excellence in Professional Learning Award for Kelso High School

The Excellence in Professional Learning Award for Schools recognises the central role that leadership at all levels plays in creating and sustaining professional learning environments where teacher professionalism can flourish and bring about sustained impact on learning and learners. 

On Wednesday, a panel of Headteachers from across Scotland spent the day within KHS.  They were inspired by the work that is going on within the school and our successful links we have made within the wider community.  We will receive this award at a ceremony in Glasgow during September and will hold this award for three years.  Well done and thank you to all.

Archeological Visit to Stobs, Hawick

Two groups of pupils were taken on successive days to the former military camp at Stobs, near Hawick, with Ms Laurie and Mr Cunningham to involve themselves in an archaeological dig.  It was a huge success as they engaged in a wide variety of techniques and group work. The second group were joined by those so enthused from the first trip that they wanted to return to finish off the job!  Photos below.

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].
