August 2017

I hope that everyone in our school community has enjoyed a restful holiday, for me it has been really encouraging to see everyone back in fine fettle ready for the challenges of the new term. There has been extensive upgrading work over the summer in the wing of the school containing the social area, Business, Computing, Home Economics, Art and Modern Languages. This work has included new heating, a windows upgrade (actual windows not Microsoft), rewiring and completely new wifi. We hope these improvements will deliver a modern and comfortable learning environment.

Once again we have returned to school in August to the best ever exam results in most measures including some outstanding individual performances that have been rightly recognised across local and national media. I would like to thank our young people and their parents / carers for the enormous hard work required for such success.

We are very excited to welcome a raft of new staff to our school, with our roll rising recruitment has been a challenge, however we are now fully staffed and prepared for the new academic year. We have welcomed a huge S1 and currently have a waiting list in S3.

In August and September, we will be welcoming parents at the following events;

  • LHSA (parent / teacher fund raising group)  7.15pm       30 August
  • Parent Council                                                            7.00pm        4 September
  • Senior Phase Information Evening                     6.00pm      12 September
  • Primary Parents’ Information Evening             6.30pm     27 September
