Tonight's S2 parent consultations was well attended and I hope that parents considered the evening to be useful in terms of allowing them to help pupils make better informed choices as they select courses for S3. It was great to see such a good turnout at such an important event.
A number of pupils and parents have contacted me in the last week or two to enquire if we will be offering Mandarin or Chinese studies next session. I would be keen to develop Mandarin in our school and will do this if there is sufficient interest among pupils. A knowledge of Mandarin and/or Chinese culture will undoubtedly benefit pupils in the future.
