As an incentive to encourage pupils to attend Friday Study School in the run up to the SQA exams, we offered a tablet as a prize to any pupils turning up to more than 75% of sessions. All pupils making this were entered into a draw and Sonto Khumalo in S5 was the lucky winner drawn out to win the Amazon Fire tablet.
Well done Sonto!

The payment schedule shows the dates that EMA payments should reach pupils’ bank accounts and which weeks are covered by those payments. The full schedule can be downloaded by clicking here.
- Pupils will not start to receive payments until their application has been processed and they have received an acceptance letter from South Lanarkshire Council. (Application forms are available in the school office)
- All S5/6 pupils should have completed a learning contract the induction days in May/June, which also acts as their EMA learning agreement.
