S5’s are not permitted to sign out and should use the study space provided, ensuring they sign in and out also.

S6 Climate Action Committee
Since the global climate strike in last September spurred us to organise and create a group of young, like-minded people, who share a passion for environmental protection and sustainability, our Climate Action Committee has taken steps to realise change within our school and in the wider area. Not only have we made changes to our canteen, regarding the unnecessary use of plastics, but we are dedicated to ensuring and protecting our community and beyond, actively petitioning and pressuring the local council to make structural, rather than superficial change. Without the help of young people, the perspective of our generation is lost. Considering the future is in our hands, it seems only appropriate that we are in touch with the leaders of today.
To support us, we are asking as many people as possible to sign our online petition. The link is:
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.
