S1+ S2 YOUTH DROP IN
Fridays 12.35pm-2.00pm @ Penicuik High School in Community Room 1. Come along and meet up with friends, have a chat with our friendly youth workers, make new friends, find out what’s available for you. Pupils are to meet a member of LLE staff at the main foyer (next to the school office) at 12.35pm.
All pupils are responsible for getting to school on time as lateness undermines good quality learning and teaching. Pupils who are late are reminded that they must attend a breaktime detention in the Assembly Hall. Failure to attend breaktime detention is being monitored and will result in further sanctions being imposed.
The next Sports Council meeting will be on Thursday 18 January 2018 at lunchtime in the PE classroom.
Active Schools Coordinator
The named pupils should come to the office today at breaktime.
NB Other pupils will be advised in this newsletter when their card arrives. Thanks.
MALAWI PARTNERSHIP – LOGO DESIGN COMPETITION
A reminder that the logo design competition for our partnership with Namadzi Secondary School in Malawi is open to all pupils in the school. We would like you to come up with a design based on the old Scots idea of the “Common Weal” – a term that denotes friendship and compassion with others. Your logo should be recognisably “Scottish”, but you can use any material to design it. Our partners in Malawi are currently doing the same and we hope to combine the winning designs from the two schools to make a single image. Please hand any designs to Mrs Andrew (Room 12) or Mr Murphy (Music) by Wednesday 20 December.
URGENT – VACCINATION FORMS
The named pupils have still to return their vaccination forms to the school office. Please do so tomorrow or first thing next week. Thank you.
