Our Options Choices booklets are currently being updated for the new term. They’ll be made available below as they are finalised.
On Wednesday 14th December all S4-S6 pupils were issued with their individual prelim timetables. A copy of the entire timetable is available to download here. It crucial that all pupils know the subject and level that they’re being presented for. Rooming and seating information will be available in the Front Hall after school on the day before each prelim.
Supported Study is available from a number of departments in the run up to the prelims and main exams should pupils wish to attend. This information is being collated centrally and will be available as soon as possible. Pupils should check with individual staff until the list is published.
Monday afternoon saw Hamilton Grammar host another hugely successful YPI Final, part of our S5 Citizenship programme.
The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community. Each participating school, each year is responsible for directing a £3000 YPI Grant to a local charity through a unique programme of team work, research and competition. YPI Scotland is all about creativity and passion, leaving the four walls of the classroom behind, and supporting the issues young people care most about.
This year we had some high calibre presentations to consider on behalf of
- Hamilton Drop-In
- Scottish Autism
- The Have
- Ups and Downs
- Pathfinder Dogs
This year’s winning presentation was delivered by Abbie, Heather and Sarah on behalf of Hamilton Sound who provide audio news stories linked to the Hamilton Advertiser.
Thanks to Miss Lynch for running the event, and for all involved in the Citizenship inputs which prepared the whole year group to take part.
