We will be hosting two members of teaching staff from Namadzi Community Day Secondary in Malawi from Monday to Friday next week. The staff are coming to Penicuik to begin our new whole school partnership and will be coming round the school visiting classes. Our new partnership will strengthen our links with Malawi and extend all the international work we have done through the Erasmus + programme. It will be great to show our visitors all the fantastic things we do at Penicuik High School and I am sure you will make them feel very welcome.

The library is now open. All library books have been renewed, your new return date is 16/06/2017. Whilst we were closed for the exams we put nearly 200 new books into the library, so now would be a good time to come and choose your summer read.
