Apple Teachers

Congratulations to the KHS PE Department, the first complete faculty to become Apple Teachers – well done!!


As a school, we have had to make the decision to terminate our contract and stop using KHS School App as from the end of March.  There was a yearly cost involved and now that the Local Authority are using Groupcall Xpressions across all schools we have been asked to make the switch.

Groupcall Xpressions

See poster below with more information.  We strongly encourage ALL parents to download this app to their phone or tablet so we can communicate with you better.

Organised and good with numbers, then the KHS Parent Council needs you!! 

The post of Treasurer for our Parent Council needs to be filled and we are looking for a volunteer to take this on for the 2020/21 session.  Our current treasurer Jane has done a fabulous job and is happy to work with a willing parent to show them the ropes.  If you are interested please email the school (kelsohs@scotborders.gov.uk).


The immunisation session for Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio will held on the first day back after the holiday.  If you have not already done so, please completed and send the form in with your youngster on Thursday 20th February.  Please note pupils without completed forms may not be immunised, we are not able to take consent over the phone on the day.
