Dear parents and carers of all P7 pupil starting with us in August,
We hope your children enjoyed ‘meeting’ some of the HGS staff and completing the tasks they had prepared for them last month. This information, along with the P7 Primary Handbook can be found under the P7 Transition Tab on our website.
When your children visit this week (Monday 15th June – Friday 19th June), they will have an assembly in the Octagon where they will meet Mrs Goring, Miss Brien, Mr Franklin (Support for Learning ), Pupil Support staff and other support staff. They will get a tour of the school and a chance to ask questions about starting in S1.
Class lists were issued on Friday 12th June through Primary Google Classroom/e-mail/letter.
Please note there will be some temporary changes to this when the pupils come to school in August, to comply with the Government conditions of social distancing in classrooms.
We have eight classes and each one is linked to a PT Pupil Support who will support your children throughout their time at HGS and especially settling into S1.
1A1 Mrs Buchanan
1A2 Mrs Buchanan
1B1 Mrs Sanderson
1L1 Miss Morton
1H1 Miss McKenzie
1H2 Mrs Arrenberg
1S1 Mrs Costello
1T1 Mr Dyett
All year groups wear school uniform and this includes a HGS blazer. Please see P7 Handbook for details. Uniform can be ordered online from our school supplier Scotcrest (www.scotcrestschools.co.uk) and further details are on their website. If you encounter difficulties ordering online, please contact Mrs Goring and Miss Brien via the school office.
Our Parent Council are looking for new members and this is a great way to be involved at HGS. They are actively involved in school life and also link with our Pupil Council. Please see the post from the Parent Council on our website and under the P7 Transition Tab.
Full details of our return to school plans and arrangements will be made available as soon as they are finalised.
Mrs Goring and Miss Brien
