June 2017
Our new timetable begins on Monday 5 of June 2017. It will be great to see young people returning from what we hope was a very successful exam diet.

On 14 June 2017 at 7.00 – 8.00 pm parents are invited to join me for a consultation session that will contribute to our school improvement plan, this may be of particular interest to parents new to our school who are interested in joining our Parent Council.

Later in the month the P7 visits will be 20- 22 June 2017, the information evening for the parents of the P7s will be on Monday 19 June 2017 at 6.30pm in our Assembly Hall.

Prize Giving Ceremony

On 1 June 2017 we had our annual Prize Giving Ceremony, it was a wonderful evening celebrating the success of our school and the achievements of our amazing young people. Our guest speaker was Sanjin Kaharavic, a senior civil servant with the Scottish Government and former pupil.

Sanjin spoke about what it takes to be successful in life and the evening was topped and tailed by our Head Girl Hannah Barclay and our Head Boy Omar Shehata who both gave excellent speeches about their experience of Liberton High School.

The Fatal Accident Inquiry

The Fatal Accident Inquiry into the tragic death of Keane-Wallis Bennett will start on 5 June 2017, at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
I recognise that this will be a difficult time for the Liberton school community and would like to reassure you that we will be putting support in place for both pupils and staff.
The Inquiry is likely to attract media attention and the Council’s media team will support the school throughout.
They will be speaking to their media contacts in advance to ask them to be sensitive to those involved and remind them that they should not speak directly to any pupils without permission or go on to the school grounds.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me directly.
