We had a very busy build up the end of term with Activities Week running for the last full week There were activities in school, day trips heading out every day and also residential trips both in the UK and abroad. Overall all activities went very well and I was delighted that many of the staff who were out of school reported to me that our pupils’ behaviour had been commented on most favourably when on the various activities. I am always proud when our pupils are such positive ambassadors for our school.
The end of term marked the end of my spell as Acting Head Teacher. As I have intimated previously, it has been a real pleasure and privilege to have been Acting Head for the last two years. When Mr Dewar returns in August I will revert to my substantive post as Depute Head Teacher in charge of Pupil Support and I will also have responsibility for our new S1 pupils.
In closing I would like to thank the school community for its support during my acting term and I look forward to continuing to work with you in my DHT post. I hope all pupils and their families have an enjoyable and restful break.
