 ATTENDANCE AT EDINBURGH COLLEGE COURSES ON TUESDAY 17 SEPTEMBER 2019

Tuesday is a holiday for school pupils in Midlothian.  Edinburgh College have been informed of all of the Midlothian school holiday dates and as such, Midlothian pupils are not expected to attend College next Tuesday 17 September.  However, as the Edinburgh schools do not have this holiday, we believe that the SCP and FA courses are still running on Tuesday. There will be no school buses or taxis arranged on this date but if College pupils still wish to attend their course on Tuesday they can do so but will have to make their own way to and from their campus.  Bus tickets can be provided as usual for those who normally get a public bus to and from their course but these would need to be collected by this Friday!

Any questions or concerns, please see me!
