Employment Opportunity – Summer Leavers

Good afternoon,

Know any 18 year olds with a passion for TV and the media? How about young people who could excel at Finance or Marketing careers but need the best pathway to support and inspire them, while earning money for their work?

Channel 4 are bringing their Apprenticeship Pop Up event to Glasgow on 6th July. Students can learn how their skills could be developed through an NVQ Level 3 apprenticeship, and get top insider tips on how to stand out in their applications.

Channel 4 are particularly keen to ensure students from diverse backgrounds join, and will proactively work with students’ needs to support accessibility.

Please can you:

· Share this flyer with your 18+ pupils 

· Encourage those interested/who would benefit to sign up before the 28 May deadline. The application form is found at http://bit.ly/C4PopUpApp  

We know students are focused on exams, but we hope this opportunity inspires them to push for the next step.

Latest Update on Funeral Arrangements for Owen MacDonald

All pupils who have been allocated a place on the school transport to attend the funeral tomorrow will receive a text on Wednesday 10 May to confirm this. Only the pupils who receive a text to confirm a space on school transport will be allowed to travel.

School transport will return pupils to the school after the funeral service at which point pupils need to make their own travel arrangements to get home or we have a late bus to Bishopton and Langbank at 4.45pm

All other pupils must make their own travel arrangements

The family have invited any pupils that wish to attend, to go to the Whipputy Scourie function room at Bridgewater for tea/coffee and sandwiches after the service

Funeral Arrangements for Owen MacDonald

The funeral will take place on Thursday 11 May at 3pm at Woodside crematorium, Paisley.


In order to support those pupils who wish to attend, the school will provide transport for any S5 pupils and close friends of Beth in S3. Those wishing to attend should provide their names to the school office before the end of the school day on Tuesday 9 May. To travel with the school, pupils will also require to submit a parental consent form. Pupils over the age of 16 will be able to complete this form themselves when they provide their names to the office. All forms should be submitted by the close of the school day on Tuesday 9 May.
Unfortunately only those pupils who have submitted their names and consent forms will be able to travel with the school. Confirmation will be sent to pupils who have been allocated a place on school transport with details of travel by the end of Wednesday 10 May.


The family have said that any Park Mains High School pupils wishing to attend are welcome however because of the numbers expected, the school is only able to provide limited transport. All other pupils wishing to attend are invited to make their own travel arrangements to the service. The family’s wish is that everyone is welcome to wear what they like.

Regards

Michael Dewar 

Headteacher

Update to parents and pupils following the death of S5 pupil Owen Macdonald

 

 

 

Many of you will now be aware of the tragic news of the death of Owen MacDonald, an S5 pupil at Park Mains High School. The thoughts of the whole school community are with his family and friends at this very sad time.

As the majority of senior pupils are now on study leave for exams, a special assembly has been arranged for S5 pupils and any of Owen’s close friends in the school on Wednesday 3 May at 3.15pm. Ongoing support is available for all pupils and those who wish to access support should contact their Guidance teachers in the first instance.
Pupils will be expected to make their own travel arrangements to the school and transport home will be provided if required.
