S4 parents' evening
This evening's meetings gave teachers and parents the opportunity to meet to discuss the progress of S4 pupils. I was delighted to see that most S4 pupils were represented on the evening by their parents/carers. These face to face meetings allow for information to be exchanged and strategies to better prepare pupils for the exams to be explored.
It is my experience over the past thirty years that pupils do best when parents and school staff work closely together to support children's learning. With over three months to go before the final exams begin there is still plenty of opportunity for pupils to put the hours in and do even better in the final exams. I would like to take this opportunity of offering a sincere thank you to all parents who came to school tonight and urging those who were unable to attend to make an alternative time to meet with us in the next few weeks. When parents and teachers work together pupils always do better.
