LEAVERS HOODIES

Would all S6 please note- it was agreed with the senior student leaders last week that Leavers Hoodies will be worn in school toward the end of session, nearer your point of leaving school in April/May. Therefore I would respectfully request they are not worn to school/ in class as uniform. Please be advised that if they are worn you will be asked to remove them and continual refusal to cooperate with staff over this matter will be referred to SMT.
