SSSA Ski Race

This week, pupils have been invited to participate in the Scottish Schools Snowsports Association races for 2023.

Those pupils interested have attended a briefing from Mr Sutherland and collected the attached letter. They have been asked to return this to Mr Sutherland by Monday 6 February to be considered for a place on this trip.

Future Trip Planning

Over the next six years, Grantown Grammar are planning a number of residential school trips.  These are of varying length, cost and activity.  We have agreed a plan for school trips so far in advance of many of them, to help parents and pupils to navigate their way through the experiences on offer and budget accordingly if appropriate.  It might be, for example, that a current S2 pupil may aim to go on the S3 Residential and then the Spain/Watersports trip when they are in S6.  Over their, potentially, six years at Grantown Grammar we hope that all pupils will be able to take part in at least one residential experience. 

This letter has been emailed to all parents and guardians today. Please contact the school on 01479 872649 or if you haven’t received it or have further queries.

DTP/MenACWY Immunisation Sessions

S3 pupils have been given consent packs for the 2023 DTP/MenACWY Immunisation Sessions from the Child Health Department, NHS Highland. Some S4-S6 pupils who have not yet received both vaccinations, will have also received a consent pack this week.

The deadline for returning these was today, Friday 27 January. However, only half of the S3’s have returned these. Can you please check with your child if they still have them in their bags and return them to the office no later than Monday 30 January as the Immunisation team will be in school delivering the S1 HPV vaccinations.

If your child did not receive a named pack, we have a small amount of blank packs that you can complete on Monday from the office.
