The Penicuik Town Hall regeneration Project wants to engage with a group of young people from Penicuik High School next week in order to set up a steering group of Young people from the Penicuik area.  This would involve you giving input into the future of the Town Hall and how it may benefit young people in the town.  I am calling for up to 8 students from S1-S6 who would like to be involved initially next week in an hour long engagement session. If you are interested in Architecture or related fields then this would be a good opportunity for you.  If you are interested please meet Mr Biddick this morning straight after Registration in the Head Teacher’s office.  Thanks.

Mr Biddick



Most courses are now underway as part of the College’s June transition programme and pupils should continue to attend on Tues/Thu of this week; June 11 and 13.

College pupils should be encouraged to check the noticeboard outside the guidance base regularly for information about their courses and a reminder of college contacts for each campus if required.

Unfortunately there were a few teething problems last week where a number of pupils decided to make up their own rules about when to leave school to attend college or that is was acceptable to attend school without uniform.  This is not acceptable and the pupils involved will be spoken to and warned.  A reminder that the arrangements for attending college were made clear in your introduction letter and a signed parental permission form was returned to support attendance.  Failure to comply with the arrangements put in place to support your college placement may lead to disciplinary action being taken, parents/carers contacted and your college placement being withdrawn.  The opportunity to attend college is a fantastic one and should not be jeapordised by poor organisation.  However, if you do experience any unforeseen issues with sustaining your college placement, please come and discuss these with me so we can work to resolve them.

On behalf of the guidance team, I hope all of the pupils involved will enjoy and benefit from the college experience.

All students are reminded that whether you are in school or out in Penicuik, you are representing your school and should show respect for the community and for property.  There should be no littering in the streets, please put your litter in bins provided or in your bag.

Thank you.
