All Pupils – Face Mask Disposal – Please when disposing of single-use face masks, make sure to cut or pull the elastic straps off. This ensures that when they end up in the environment, it does not tangle around animals. Having a re-usable mask (as long as it is washed regularly) is ultimately the safest and best option for our environment. However, if using single-use masks, you should collect multiple used masks (with straps cut off) in a plastic bag, seal or tie it and dispose.
Mr Fraser

All Current S4 & S5 Pupils – Are you currently in either S4 or S5? Are you interested in becoming a Buddy and helping out within the school? It would involve giving up either a break or part of your lunch once a week to help support other pupils. You will receive training around ADHD, ASD and Child Protection, amongst other things. This is a very rewarding role and one we are sure you will enjoy. If you are interested, you can get the link to the application form on your House/PSE Google classrooms or from Mrs Park in The Link.
