The S4 option evening will be on Wednesday 19th March. Below is the letter that was issued to pupils regarding the event:
As indicated on our recent Parents’ Evening Newsletter, we will hold a S4 Parents Options Information Evening on Wednesday 19th March from 6.30pm – 8.00pm.
Your son / daughter will be invited to attend an interview in school, with a member of the Options Team on Tuesday 25th March. He/she will complete an Option Choice form, choosing subjects to study at an appropriate level in S5. This evening will provide you with valuable information to help you and your son/daughter make informed choices.
The Information Evening will be organised in three stages:
· An initial presentation of the option form and study leave request form, and the expectations placed on pupils as they enter S5. This presentation will take place in the assembly hall and will last around 30 minutes.
· Thereafter, you will have the opportunity to attend workshops offered by the different subject departments, to ask specific questions and speak to teachers and pupils about course choice.
· In the library, we will have a series of stalls to provide students with information to support their course choices. This will include a careers clinic, study leave advice and work experience support.
I hope you are able to attend the Information Evening. However, if you have any queries regarding the evening or the course choice programme, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mr G McDowall (Depute Head Teacher)
