S1 pupils will be attending the Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie, on Wednesday 23 November. This trip offers a great opportunity for pupils as part of Grantown Grammar School’s Mandarin culture programme. Pupils have received an information letter yesterday and are asked to return their parental consent to Mrs Mackintosh or the School office before Friday 18 November.
Unfortunately, due to staff illness, we need to postpone the Snowsports trip information evening. This will be rescheduled to Thursday 24 November, 7pm, at Grantown Grammar School. An email has been sent to parents, guardians and pupils registered for the trip.
In the interim, please can we request that all parents/guardians ensure that they have completed the full payment of £1100 to the school. Any additional costs for ski carriage, board hire etc will be confirmed at the meeting.
At present we have a number of outstanding payments still to be made. If you are unsure of your current balance please contact Mrs Broadhurst in the school office who will be able to give you a personalised statement of any remaining balance.
S4-6 pupils will be issued with SQA’s “Your National Qualifications” booklet during Tutor Time today. It is clear and supportive advice about the courses that are up and running and our pupils are progressing through. It also gives clear guidance on the dos and dont’s about producing work over the school year.
All S4-6 pupils should read this and discuss at home.
This end of term newsletter has been emailed to parents and guardians today, from Head Teacher, Claire McGonigal. We all wish you a restful and enjoyable Autumn break and look forward to seeing you back at school on Monday 24 October.
