COVID-19 and KHS
We have added a new section to our website with information on changes made at KHS due to COVID-19. We will keep adding more to this section as and when we receive any necessary information/documents.
To provide clarification on parent communication please find attached a copy of our guidelines.
A reminder that ONLY S6 pupils are authorised to be studying at home. S5 pupils must be in school for study periods.
If any S6 pupils are studying at home in the morning you MUST contact the school either by phone, Xpressions app or email. This is needed to comply with fire regulations and also for the Track and Trace system.
We are aware that there have been issues within school using the ipads, however we have reassured that CGI have been working on this across SBC all week and should see improve improvements next week. Please can we ask that every young people remembers to bring their ipads to school every day, fully charged.

School of Rugby
As we move forward in our return to school we can announce that the School of Rugby Programme will run again for 2020/2021 in partnership with Kelso RFC and Scottish Rugby.
The programme provides the opportunity for any learners to sign up to participate in learning through Rugby with our Development Officer, Murray Hastie. The programme is diverse and has a focus on skills, strength and conditioning, nutrition and general wellbeing. Learners will be extracted from 1 period of PE per week as part of this and this provides the opportunity to work in small groups. This year we are extending the programme from S1-S4.
If existing players wish to sign back up or you are new to the school and wish to express interest, parents/carers should complete the form asap via the link below. Once signed up further information will follow.
Young Leader Award
A big congratulations to the S1s who completed the P7 Young Leader Award last school year. They have developed an array of skills to become fantastic leaders delivering fun games to the lower primary ages. They will now go on to become an integral part of the S1 inter-house competitions, which will see them enhance their communication and organisation skills even more to help their house earn points. The Active Schools Co-ordinator Lorna is really looking forward to see how they progress throughout this academic year.
