Parent Pay

All pupils received a letter today regarding ParentPay. The letter has activation instructions which are unique to your child/children and should not be shared with anyone. 

ParentPay can be used to pay for school meals, trips etc. SLC have produced a video which answers some of the frequently asked questions. You can view it below, or on our Vimeo channel.

Glasgow University- Early Secondary Program

Over the last couple of months, tutors from Glasgow University have visited the school to work with our S2 and S3 pupils. They hosted sessions which revolved around subject choices and career pathways ahead of these pupils finalising their subject choices. Pupils found this helpful and were able to link various skills they develop whilst studying various different subjects. The final instalment to this program will be on 6th February, when the tutors will be working with S1 and considering their future career paths.

Highlighting Learner Pathways Around the School

Some departments have been working to highlight the wide variety of pathways available to pupils within their subject areas. In particular, Music and RMPS have created displays within their departments which promote these careers. With subject choices currently being finalised with our S3s, this is an ideal time to have a look and see where each of your favourite subjects could take you. For more information, The My World of Work Website has more information for pupils and parents….
