S3 Profiles

As has been the case for a number of years now, to mark the end of the Broad General Education phase of their education, over the last few weeks S3 students have been creating an S3 Profile which sums up their key learning and achievements from their first three years in Eyemouth High School.

Most S3 students completed these on Wednesday, saving a copy in school and printing out a copy to take home. Some S3 students were involved in the Athletics Championship on Wednesday and so have the opportunity to finish off their Profiles tomorrow. If students are out of school tomorrow (e.g. because they are on a Duke of Edinburgh expedition), they will have an opportunity to complete their Profile next week.

If you have a son or daughter in S3, please ask them to see a copy of their S3 Profile. It is a document that they should feel proud of.

S1-3 Progress Reports

S1-3 students were issued with their first Progress Report of the year on Friday. There is a parental/guardian return slip which we would be grateful if you could complete and return.

This Progress Report should be read along with the information that students record in their Planner (they keep a daily Self-evaluation Record and also a record of assessed work in their Progress Record). We ask S1-3 students to get a parental/guardian signature in their Planner every weekend. If you haven’t been in the habit of asking your son or daughter to see their Planner at weekends and signing it, we would appreciate it if you could start to do so.

Many thanks,

Mr Robertson

EYEMOUTH STUDENTS JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER

Eyemouth High School students are looking to once again to ‘walk the walk’ in aid of Cancer Research.  On the afternoon of Wednesday 22 June, all students, including volunteers from the Parent Council, Rotary, Eyemouth Community Council and Eyemouth District Community Trust will take part in a whole school ‘Race for Life’  5K walk, jog or run.

Race for Life

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring series of events which raises millions of pounds every year to help fund vital research.

 

Rachel Carr, head of Race for Life, said: “Race for Life Schools is a fantastic way to have fun, get fit and save lives. Young people today are the generation who could see ground-breaking treatments and cures for cancer in their lifetime. They will be the researchers and lifesavers of tomorrow. But first, we need them to be the fundraisers of today – and walk, jog and run to help beat cancer sooner.”

We would like to thank the Parent Council as well as the local Co-Op for donating water as well as MacKays for kindly donating ice cream for everyone who completes the race.

Please help our young people make a difference by sponsoring them or by donating today by logging on to: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Eyemouth-High-School-Eyemouth-High-School

Thank you

Student self-evaluation and Planners

Self-evaluation is a skill which Eyemouth High School works hard to develop in students and staff. Students are expected to self-evaluate their progress on an on-going basis, period-by-period. The student Planner has been designed to help with this, and all S1-3 students should be using it to record a summary of their learning and progress at the end of each period:

Our new S1 students have been asked to get their parents to sign this section of the Planner at weekends, and we are now rolling this out to S2. If you are a parent of an S1 or S2 student, please could you remind your son or daughter to show you their Planner at the weekend, discuss their self-evaluation with them, and sign it.

S3 Parents’ Evening and Aspirational Targets

The S3 Parents’ Evening is on Wednesday 4th March, 6pm – 8.30pm. S3 students should be in the process of making appointments.

Many of the conversations will focus on which courses students would like to follow next year. To support this, students are given “Aspirational Targets” for each of their subjects. Parents should receive a letter through the post tomorrow morning which gives details of these. If you are attending the Parents’ Evening, please bring this along with you.
