It seems that each time I introduce this Newsletter I point out what a momentous time this is in our school’s history and ask you to reflect on the tremendous range and volume of opportunities on offer to our young people. This edition is no different, and although packed with information I would have to say that it only gives a sample of what is on offer.
We have settled well into our beautiful new school. Our academic standards remain high and internal tracking points to Tuesday 8th of August (SQA results day) bringing joy to many homes across our catchment. The numbers likely to stay on into S5 and S6 are again high and with the largest S1 intake for many years it looks like our roll will be at a 10 year high. Within education circles our curriculum and the innovative approaches developed as part of the Scottish Attainment Challenge are attracting local and national admiration.
Such a positive picture takes hard work and I again pay tribute to all my teaching colleagues and others who make Viewforth High School the very special place we know it to be.
