At interviews held in the school this week we have made an appointment to the Modern Languages Department – Ms K. Gibbons, and an appointment to the Music and ASN post Mrs C. Buchanan. We will welcome these new members of staff to our school community in the near future.
Head Teacher Surgery
Last Tuesday saw the start of the Head Teacher Surgery. Two set of parents attended and this opportunity enabled them to ask a few questions around how things work in school. Please note the change of time – 4.30 – 6.30pm weekly.
The Parent Council met on Tuesday past at 6.30pm. The focus of this meeting was an update from myself around, SQA Results, Staffing, Our Improvement Planning Process and discussions around the Pupil Equity Fund.
Due to a number of factors we have had to change the planned date for school photographs to Wednesday 13th September 2017.
Golden Ticket for Dynamic Earth
Mrs Chalmers from our Social Subjects Team made an application, on behalf of our school for a Golden Ticket for Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. Her application has been considered – and she WON!!!
This will allow us free entry for a year to pupils on school trips to Dynamic Earth. This should allow lots of pupils at Bannockburn High to be able to visit and take part in lots of workshops. More details will follow. Thanks to Mrs Chalmers for giving our school community this wonderful opportunity.
