Message for S1 Parents/Carers

To all parents / carers,

All S1 pupils must remain on the school grounds during lunch and Interval.  This is to ensure all data checks are complete and friendship groups are well established.  There are plenty of picnic tables for pack and school lunches.  This arrangement will be reviewed at the September weekend.
