Glasgow University Top- Up Program

Over the last couple of weeks, 20 pupils from S6 have formed a cluster group with pupils from St John Ogilvie HS to work with tutors from Glasgow University on the Widening Participation Top- Up Program. This will allow them to complete an academic study program over 5 sessions and a campus day early next year. Pupils have been working hard during these sessions and are looking forward to completing this program next year.

Debating Success

In the ESU Senior Public Speaking Competition at the High School of Glasgow, Rebecca Grainger dusted down her Morrison Cup-winning speech from June and produced another great performance to reach the 2nd round ahead of pupils from Wellington School, Bearsden Academy and HSOG. A big thank you to Mrs Mackenzie for her help with preparation and planning.

Meanwhile over at Uddingston Grammar, S4 pupils Laura Ford and Faith Downie were the youngest competitiors and had to speak twice (when one team pulled out) but produced an impressive set of performances to storm into the 2nd round of the prestigious Donald Dewar Debating Competition.

Home Economics Payments

Dear parent / guardian

The Home Economics department are starting to roll out the cashless e-payment system – ParentPay.  This will start with the S2 year group.

Home Economics contributions (S2)

  • All S2 pupils will make a variety of dishes (called “Hospitality”) and fabric technology (design and make a cushion) from August 2019 to May 2020 as part of the Broad General Education curriculum.
  • We will provide all the necessary ingredients, materials, equipment and resources for all lessons.
  • ÂŁ15 per pupil will ensure all of the necessary ingredients and materials are procured.
  • Pupils will still be required to bring a container (reduce plastic pollution) and the teacher will advise depending on the dish produced.

Payment can be paid up or in one instalment however we would require the ÂŁ15 to be paid by the 4th of November.

A detailed ParentPay user guide can be downloaded from the ParentPay website.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you need assistance.
