Lost property

With the end of term approaching, we will be collecting all the items of lost property that have accumulated, to be reunited with their owners, but please check with the school office if you have lost an item of value, we quite often get handed keys, jewellery and wallets.

REACH Scotland (Autism)

A great resource for pupils transferring to secondary school.
Support for pupils from ENQUIRE. Enquire’s website for young people has had a huge makeover thanks to the help of 75 young people and now has a new brand name – REACH. The core message is that no-one is out of reach, and that the right support can make all the difference to pupils who are struggling at school. The site includes lots of advice from young people themselves. ENQUIRE had input from a number of young people with Autism during the development of the site and there is autism specific information featured (and plans to include more in the future).

Science Skills

Senior Chemistry pupils have been learning about the ‘Thermite Reaction’ between aluminium and iron oxide.  This reaction creates aluminium oxide and iron (and a lot of heat energy!) This process is used to weld railway tracks together.

PROUD NESS

A number of pupils have expressed an interest to attend the Inverness PROUD NESS being held during the summer break. Fraser Morrison our Youth Development Officer will be running a mini bus to the event and escorting pupils during the event and then transporting them back to Grantown. The bus would aim to leave the school by 11.15am and return by 6.30pm

If any pupil is interested in attending this event then please collect a permission letter from Guidance and return by Thursday 20 June.

Should have gone to Specsavers!!

All Higher science pupils will be attending a workshop run by Specsavers looking at careers in optometry. Pupils should report to the hall period 3 on Wednesday the 12th of June.

Pupil list

If your name is not on the list but you would still wish to be involved please see Mr Abenheimer.

School Leavers

If you are leaving the School, you need this important information. Essentially, you will need to transfer all your documents to another Google Account as the school account provided by Highland Council closes within a few months of leaving. That means all information on these school accounts is deleted!

Handy advice on how to do this can be found here.

Before your account is removed, it is imperative that you change your email address on any accounts or websites which you have used your email address for. i.e. a few pupils didn’t follow the advice last year and couldn’t access their UCAS account (which they’d used their school email account for) to accept University placements. They could only login to UCAS with the email account stated which had been deleted when they went to login!

Post Results Service

We’ve updated the “Coursework, Revision & Exams” of the “Information” section of the school website with a Post Results service letter for 2019.

This is what people sometimes call Appeals or a Remark – though unfortunately it’s not as simple as that. Pupils awaiting their exam results on 6 August should familiarise themselves with this sooner rather than later,

The priority at this stage is for any pupils with a “Conditional” University or College placement to contact Mr Ross ASAP.
