Please find enclosed a copy of the timetable for Easter school. As you can see this covers a range of subjects at every level. It is open to all pupils in S4, 5 and 6 over all 4 days. We have organised Easter school for a number of years and the feedback has always been very positive. This year we have extended the number of days to allow pupils to study more subjects. Easter school is part of our drive to raise attainment. Teachers are currently signing pupils up for their classes so that we have an idea of the numbers of pupils planning to be in each session. Please encourage your son/daughter/ward to sign up for classes with individual teachers. Pupils attending Easter school should be aware of the following:-
Each day is split into 3 classes – 9.15 am to 11.00 am, 11.15 am to 1.00 pm and 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm. Interval will be 11.00 am to 11.15 am with lunch between 1.00 pm and 1.30 pm.
Pupils will be expected to stay in subjects for complete classes – they don’t have to stay for the whole day but have to commit to a full class.
Pupils do not need to wear school dress but should wear appropriate clothes for study.
Tea/coffee/juice will be available in the canteen.
The library will be available for quiet study although some sessions are timetabled in the library computer areas.
Pupils must sign in and out of school at the main entrance.
Please encourage your son/daughter/ward to attend as much as possible and if you have any questions about this letter please contact me at the school.
