The lead up to Christmas is always a busy time at Peebles High School and there is much to prepare for in the weeks ahead. There are three Parents' Evenings (S2, S3 and S4) before the holidays and we look forward to meeting parents and discussing progress and next steps for learning. We are also excited about our new Careers Event for S3 and S5 students that we hope will help our students to consider their future and assist them in making the right choices in their learning. Our Business School will be running their ever popular Enterprise Fair as well as a new business event and a Personal Finance workshop for S4 students. English, Maths, Administration and Science teachers will be working with the SQA to verify the standards in the new S4 qualifications and our efforts to give S4 students all the assistance we can in succeeding with their 'Nationals' will continue.The Higher students will start to be supported by their mentors in the build up to their examinations and all students will be encouraged to focus on developing their study skills.
Winter term is also our busiest for social occasions with Hallowe'en Dances, Christmas Concerts, Charity Concerts and Dances to enjoy. Hopefully the weather will be kinder this winter and we'll be able to fulfil all of our sporting commitments in Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Football, Cycling and Skiing - please check the school calendar for dates.
Let's make it a term to remember.
