1 All Classes – OUR VISION AND VALUES

We will focus on the third two School Values throughout the month of November. Your Year Heads, your PSL’s (Guidance teachers), all your teachers and I will expect to see you showing these values in your attitude, work and behaviour both in and out of school throughout November. I will be speaking to many of you to discuss how you are striving to embrace these values. Think carefully about how each value applies to you.

Our November values are:

·        Initiative

·        Mistakes are okay as long as you learn from them

·        Achieve your own goals through developing skills for life, learning and work

·        Show determination, resilience and ambition

·        Equality

·        Accept all aspects of social and cultural life regardless of personal beliefs and values

·        Treat others as you wish to be treated

·        Show care towards those who may need help

The Gideons visited the school yesterday.  If you would like a small New Testament bible, a large print version or a comic version – help yourself from the box just inside the Modern Languages resource cupboard on the top floor.

3 All classes – Food should not be eaten in the LRC

It is lovely to see so many pupils using the LRC at social times. Please be aware that no food is allowed in the LRC. Only water. Students breaking this rule will be asked to leave and may have the privilege of using the LRC at social times withdrawn.

5 Attention S2.

Those pupils who signed up for JASS in S1 should, by now, have fully completed each activity and written up their experiences on EJASS. Most pupils have not updated their EJASS profiles. This must be completed by Friday November 24th. Come and see Mrs Robertson or Mr Wilson asap if you are having any difficulties getting EJASS finished. Remember – you chose to do the Award, the school has paid for you to do this Award, you are expected to complete it.
