End of Term 23/06/22

Dear Parent/Carer,

 SQA Results

Young people who are awaiting SQA results, these will be delivered on Tuesday 9th of August. On the 10th of August there will be an opportunity to meet with the school staff to discuss any Options changes that may be required in light of the results. There will be two drop-in sessions as detailed below:

  • S5 Pupils should attend between 10-12pm
  • S6 Pupils should attend between 12.30-2.30pm

Young people should attend to change subjects only. If a change of level is required (Higher to N5 for example) this will be addressed when pupils return to school on the 17th August 2022.

Priority Appeals

A Priority Appeals service will operate for those requiring the outcome of an appeal(s) for immediate progression to university, college, training, or employment. Young people who require a Priority Appeal must contact the school office, on the 9th or 10th of August, to arrange an appointment to meet Mrs Widdowson on the 10th of August.

S6 Captains

I am delighted to inform you that our S6 Captains for session 22/23 have been selected after a presentation and interview process. Our Captains for next year are Hannah Smith and Caroline Crabb, with Milo McPherson and Dillon Ritchie appointed as Vice Captains. We look forward to working with the leadership team and wish them all the best for the year ahead.

Uniform

During the summer holidays many Parents and carers will be purchasing uniform for next session. May I remind you of the uniform policy at Duncanrig Secondary School:

  • Blazer
  • Plain white school shirt
  • School tie
  • Plain black school trousers or plain black school skirt
  • Plain black jumper or cardigan (no hoodies)
  • Black school shoes/boots

If you are planning to buy new school shoes for August, may I remind you that all pupils should be wearing plain black shoes with black laces – no coloured trim, coloured logos, etc.  Plain black trainers are also acceptable, but not ones with white toe caps (e.g. Converse) or white laces. Our usual provider is Stevensons uniforms and details can be found here:

It has been a busy term and a very busy June in Duncanrig Secondary School. The cast of ‘Sunshine on Leith’ has dazzled us and our U13s football team impressed on the pitch by winning the Lanarkshire Cup.  Across our community, our young people have been involved in a number of events and activities including: Numeracy Day, Staff v Pupils Football, Sports Day, Fun Day, the Youth Philanthropy Initiative final, and the Lego League. As we reach the end of the term, I would like to thank you for your support over the past three months and wish you a restful summer break.

 

Yours faithfully,

Annette Alexander

Acting Head Teacher
