Please check out today’s bulletin here.  Thank you.

School Uniform – I have been very impressed with the school uniform this term.  As winter approaches pupils are reminded to wear warm black or blue jumpers or cardigans so that when they are asked to remove outdoor clothing in classes they are prepared.  Hoodies are not part of the school uniform and therefore will be treated as outdoor clothing.

Senior pupils are reminded that they are not permitted to park in either the High School Car Park or Oakbank Primary Car Park, there may be parking available across at the Community Centre on Viewlands Road.

The Kinfauns House Team is organising a Shoebox Appeal for the first week in November.  This helps people in disadvantaged countries who will otherwise not receive anything for Christmas.  Some lack even the most basic of life’s essentials.  We’d appreciate if people could provide empty boxes OR a shoebox filled with appropriate gifts/supplies – please go here to check the kind of thing we are looking for:  https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/213375_0185a5151b3c417fbd9c0a3c2f968458.pdf (or go to the Blythswood Shoebox appeal website).  Money donations are also accepted, which is used to purchase items to fill more shoeboxes.
