Careers Convention S1 – S6

We would like to invite you to this year’s Careers Convention which we organise alongside Balerno High School each year.

The event will take place on Monday 28 January 2019 in the concourse of Balerno High School from 6 – 8pm.

The convention is part of the comprehensive careers programme of help and support offered in school.  The aim of the evening is to provide guidance and information about the range of opportunities in the world of work, in training and in Further and Higher Education.  There will be a wide range of representatives present who will give advice and guidance in their field of expertise.  Representatives from a number of colleges and universities will also be present to give details of courses available.

We extend a warm welcome to you and hope you will join us for this event.

Doreen MacKinnon

Head Teacher

S2 Personalisation and Choice Information Evening

The above Information Evening for parents and carers of S2 pupils is being held on

Wednesday 30th January at 7.00pm

All S2 will soon be making choices about the subjects they will study in S3 as they can exercise some personalisation and choice in S3 to ensure that they have a good foundation from which they can progress into the Senior Phase in S4.

The Information Evening will provide you with the information required to support and guide your child through the personalisation and choice process. The purpose of the Information Evening is to:
 Explain the rationale behind the personalisation and choice process.
 Provide details of the courses on offer, the personalisation and choice process and the support available to you and your child.
 To answer any questions you may have about this process or Curriculum for Excellence in general.

I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 30th January.

Yours sincerely

Doreen MacKinnon
