The College’s management team and the Highlands and Islands Students’ Association Inverness met today to discuss our response to the sharp rise in cases of the Omicron variant and the First Minister’s indication yesterday that more restrictions may be unavoidable.
It is clear we must take additional steps to try and reduce transmission of this virus.
As a result, we have taken the decision to temporarily move most of our teaching to remote delivery when our campuses re-open after the festive break.
This means senior phase programmes scheduled on Friday 7th January and Friday 14th January will be delivered remotely to pupils.
We would ask pupils to look at their student email, as course teams will be in touch directly with pupils on Thursday 6th January with details regarding how to access remote classes.
These measures are temporary to give us time to respond to any further Scottish Government guidance over the break. It is very much our intention that normal, planned delivery will resume w/c Monday 17th January.
Pupils will not be required to attend school on their college day and will be able to access their college work from home.
Please contact the Guidance department if you have any further questions.
Thank you to everyone who donated gifts and money to Grantown Grammar’s efforts to support MFR’s Mission Christmas appeal. Today the gifts were successfully delivered and packaged by our pupils ready for collection tomorrow from the Grantown Co-op on the High Street and the £192 raised on Friday was also handed over to their appeal. THANK YOU!!
Thank you to Marina from Mikeysline who spent time with our S3 pupils today.
Our pupils learned about Mikeysline who are a Mental Health Charity who support young people in the Highlands struggling with their mental health.
We are passionate about suicide prevention and raising wider awareness about mental health issues. Mikeysline focus on breaking down the stigma, which often surrounds mental health and suicide. This stigma in turn can prevent people from feeling that they can talk openly about how they are feeling and seeking support when they need it.
Those pupils applying through UCAS for a University course are reminded that your Personal Statement should be completed by the start of the October holidays to allow the guidance staff plenty of time to complete the necessary references and paperwork for the December deadline.
If for whatever reason you are not able to complete it by this time, or you are unsure about your application at all, please speak to your guidance teacher so we can make other arrangements.
