S6 Head Team Update
This week was the second week of the ‘See Me’ training. The committee enjoyed their training, grasping a greater understanding of their role around supporting mental wellbeing. Once everyone has completed their training will be given a badge so pupils will be able to point them out in the school. They have one more training session left, with plans to next week go into the senior classes and introduce themselves and talk about what they plan to do.
Our Seniors continue to study hard in preparation for our first assessment window that will be held in December.
We have lots of exciting plans for after the October holidays and looking forward to putting these into action.
Have a great weekend.
Congratulations to Mr Stirling’s stars of the month! ⭐️👏 Throughout September these pupils have really displayed the values of KHS and gone above and beyond in their maths lessons.
S1 pupils have enjoyed using Manga High in maths to consolidate their learning through interactive activities and games. A few gold medals were earned along the way!🏅 This is a great online resource that our Parent Council very kindly agreed to support financially.
