Work Experience 2018

 

Further to the Work Experience Assembly held in June where the ‘Self-Found / Flexible Placement Forms’ were handed out, please could I ask now that all completed forms be handed in to the school office or to myself in Physics Room 1.

 

As a reminder to all pupils, the deadline for processing these forms in conjunction with the criteria set by Gateway Work Placement Services is the week beginning Monday 17 September.

 

The Work Experience itself will take place the week beginning Monday 29 October. All pupils self-planning and preparation for the Work Experience will be supported in Social Education lessons with the opportunity to complete the National 4 - SQA Steps to Work award.

 

However, please could I reiterate at this time the importance of an early completion in the next week of the ‘Self Found’ forms, as this will enormously help the smooth processing of the Work Experience 2018, giving time for them to be internally processed and checked.

 

If anyone has any further questions or would like another copy of the placement form, it can be easily accessed from the school website or myself in Physics 1.

 

Attached is a blank copy of the Self Found Placement form which requires completion.

Welcome to the NEW Berwickshire High School website. We are delighted to be able to launch this now, albeit that there is much to do in terms of general design and content. Please bear with us as we upload the content over the coming weeks. Daily Bulletins and the weekly 'Heads Up!' will be posted here under 'News' and the school calendar will be updated continuously with relevant content. It is our hope that, in due course, the life of the school will be clearly reflected in the website and you will be able to get all the information that you may need through the various headings.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Parent Council for their support in this new venture and in particular those parents that have taken a direct role in helping the school to develop the overall structure of the site.

On Tuesday 12th December during the school day intensive Study Skills Sessions will be taking place for senior students to help them prepare for their Prelims in January.  The Sessions will be held in the Assembly Hall and will be led by former Head Teacher Norman Roxburgh.  It is hoped that the students will appreciate the help given.

 

 

The Senior Prelims run this year from Monday 22nd January to Friday 2nd February.  Please see the attached timetable for the dates and timings of each exam.
