S4-6 Progress Point Reports

S4-6 students have been issued with their first Progress Point Report this morning. Along with the information they record in their Planner, we hope that is a useful summary of where they are with their learning in each of their Senior Phase courses. You may find it useful to look at this along with the “Progress Record” section of your son/daughter’s Planner.

There is a feedback/comments sheet at the back of the report. We would appreciate it if you could complete that and ask your son/daughter to return it to their Registration teacher. This also serves as a receipt that you have received the report.

Finally, included in envelopes with reports is a “Getting the Best Results that You Can” information sheet. This has been put together based on comments by teachers and students in Eyemouth High School. We hope you find that useful too.

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
