MISSING/TRUANTING

Over the last few days there have been a number of students leaving classes without permission and truanting. This shows a complete lack of self-respect and respect for staff and will be dealt with firmly by Senior management.  If you leave a class you must have permission and an out of class pass. Students found in corridors without a clear reason will be sent to Senior Management.  If you have a time out card and use it to leave a class you must report to the correct place and staff member at all times.

Dear Parents and Carers

Two S1 pupils from Beeslack and Penicuik High, Hannah and Emily, visited Newbattle Community High School recently to speak to S6 pupils, Craig and Erin, about the world-class learning environment and its Digital Centre of Excellence. It has been captured  on film to give you more information about plans for education in the Penicuik and surrounding areas. Proposals include a replacement for Beeslack built along the A701 corridor with a Centre of Excellence in STEM subjects and a potential refurbishment of Penicuik High.
