See you all there.
S4-6 – One week Science Summer Schools running during the summer holidays for S4-S6 pupils at Edinburgh Zoo or the Highland Wildlife Park. The application deadline is next Friday, 15th March 2019 for summer 2019. Places are free. Copy flyer available from Mrs Martin.

Room 3-12 will continue to be available at lunchtimes and after schools for Cyber Club students.
S1 Pupils – A cricket club has been set up at Errol Primary School on Thursday’s from 6pm – 8pm and it starts this week. This club is free and is for S1 pupils that live in the Carse of Gowrie and who currently attend Perth High School. This club has been set up in partnership with Active Schools and the Eastern Perth Youth Alliance. I hope to see as many S1’s there as possible as it is a great opportunity to play sport and to chat to the Youth Worker to help them assess the needs of your area.
S2-S5 Pupils – Sports Coaching Qualifications – Entry level sports coaching/leadership/officiating courses will take place during the Easter holidays. These include dance, swimming, sports leadership, netball, athletics, hockey leaders, tennis and hockey youth umpire award. See Miss Cook or Mr McDougall in PE for an application form. As the qualifications are heavily subsidised through Active Schools pupils are required to undertake 20 hours of volunteering in a school or community club setting. Course information and dates is also displayed on the window of the new games hall facility.
All pupils – Saltire Awards – A reminder that pupils who are doing any volunteering through school such as DofE, buddying or helping with a sports club are eligible for a Saltire Award. Please pick up a registration form and booklet from Miss Cook in PE or
Mrs Osbaldstone in the school office. It is anticipated that we will be submitting all Saltire Award requests to the volunteer centre in Perth at the end of March so please get your forms in asap to avoid missing out.
Cross Country – The Perth and Kinross Cross Country Championships 2019 will take place at Scone Racecourse on Tuesday 19th of March 2019. Anyone interested in competing should see Mr Sutherland (PE) asap, either in the New Games Hall or in 3.10 during Support.
We would like to remind pupils that Tuesday and Thursdays lunchtimes in the Library are for homework or reading ONLY. Increasing numbers of pupils seem unable to respect this, or to respect the relaxed but quiet atmosphere we strive for over the remainder of the week. If pupils cannot behave appropriately, we will have no choice but to restrict access.
