Trip to Glasgow Velodrome

A reminder that the school has managed to secure discounted tickets to the Revolution Series velodrome cycling in Glasgow on Saturday 8 October. Although the line-up for 2016 event hasn’t been confirmed, in previous years the highest standard of competitors have taken part in Glasgow including Jason Kenny, Laura Trott, Calum Skinner, Geraint Thomas, Lizzie Armitstead, Theo Bos and Sarah Storey who between them would be weighed down by their Olympic and World Championship medals.
Please let Mr Ross know by Friday 26 August if you want to go to this exciting event.
We can’t quite confirm the price at this point but are estimating that the cost of transport and ticket will be around £35 per person. The event is on the first Saturday of the October holidays so please check if you are available.

Headteacher’s Surgery

Today is the first ‘Headteacher’s Surgery’.  Mrs McGonigal will be available from 5pm to 6pm if anyone wants to drop in for a chat.

The ‘Headteacher’s Surgery’ will take place every Thursday from 5pm to 6pm and is an opportunity to pop into school for an informal visit.  Mrs McGonigal is very keen to have an ‘open door’ approach and would be delighted to have callers and hear their comments and suggestions.

Welcome back

Mrs McGonigal, Headteacher, wishes a warm welcome back to all her staff and pupils and gives a special greeting to her new students.  She hopes you had a relaxing, restful summer.  All pupils have been issued with a planner for the new school year, which contains lots of useful information.  Take a minute to have a look through it.  Every week there’s a space for a parent’s or carer’s signature.  Bus passes were issued yesterday.  Any problems, contact the school office – 872649.

School Garden – Harvest time

The GGS ‘green fingered’ team are reaping the benefits of all their hard work in the school garden.  Having let nature do it’s stuff over the summer holidays, we proudly harvested some of our potatoes, beetroot and peas yesterday.

Exam Results

Good luck to all of our pupils who receive their results tomorrow (Tuesday 9th August) morning.  Mr Ross and Mrs McGonigal will be in the school during the day if you want to discuss or celebrate anything.  Hopefully, it won’t be needed but a reminder that information on Post Results Service can be found here.
