RETURN OF PRACTICAL WORK IN ART & DESIGN FROM SQA

As the deadline for notifying the SQA of which pupils’ Art Folios are to be returned is fast approaching (Wednesday 26 September) could the named pupils please bring in their £5 or £10 if they wish their folio/s returned by the SQA as soon as possible. If they do not wish their work returned, could they also please advise the Art Department, so we know not to chase them for any payment.

Many thanks.
