Student Newsletter 6 June 2018


What do you do with those bits of loose change you have left when you get home from school?  Or those few coins you find in the pocket of a jacket you’ve not worn for ages? Make a commitment to stash away all 1p, 2p and 5p coins in a savings tin/bottle/piggy bank – anything suitable – just don’t spend it! Start by doing this the first time for just a few weeks.  Then extend it to a few months. You’ll be amazed how quickly this will add up into a tidy sum – could be spends for a holiday or money towards the cost of presents next Christmas!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday lunchtime.  We have a number of things to finalise for the expedition so I need you all there as early as possible.

Mr Merson



We are looking for two new Penicuik HS Young Ambassadors for Sport.  The role of Young Ambassador is to promote sport, and motivate and inspire other young people to get involved in sport in schools, clubs and local communities.  If you are in S3 and are interested please collect an application form from the PE department.  If you would like more information, please speak to the current YA’s – Anna Fergusson or Hannah Moffat, who will be able to give  you more information.  Completed application forms should be returned to the PE department and we will interview all interested pupils.
