For those of you who would like to support us through sponsorship, please find a link below to our JustGiving page.
A massive congratulations to our Young Enterprise Team Revamped on their amazing wins yesterday. To watch our fantastic students compete with their peers from Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and East Renfrewshire and achieve such success was a very proud moment. One judge commented that in 22 years of being involved in Young Enterprise he had never seen such a good product. Outstanding achievement for all involved. Well done Mrs Smith and Mrs Nelson and to Miss Maciver, Mr Magee and Mr Thorburn for all your hard work in supporting the team.
Just a reminder that the school will be open this Saturday and next from 10am to 12.30pm to allow any young person an area to study.
I am delighted to inform you of the finalised details for the Manchester City trip. The details for the trip are as follows:
Pupils should bring the following for the day:
Snacks and water/drinks for the day
Money to pay for lunch/food and if they wish to visit the club shop for souvenirs.
Please note any mobile devices brought on the trip are solely the pupil’s responsibility.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch through the school.
