On Friday our staff and pupils attended an Easter Service at St John’s Church in Hamilton Town Centre held by Rev Joanne Hood. The service focussed on words, the words that we say often, and the words that we fail to say as often as we should. Our pupils were asked to share words that they felt weren’t said often enough and some of the best messages are shown below.
As you will no doubt be aware, the school is implementing the new National examinations for the first time this session. We are also conducting our options interviews for next session and planning our S5-6 curriculum. This will involve new Higher courses and an innovative approach to wider achievement. We are at a very important moment in the implementation of the senior phase of Curriculum for Excellence.
