On Thursday 15th of November, 7pm, we are running a “University Information Evening” for S1-6 parents. The evening will include:
- a presentation about applying to university, lead by a representative from The University of Edinburgh;
- a presentation from LEAPs;
- a presentation from a parent, giving a parent’s perspective.
This event will take place in the assembly hall. The invitation to attend is open to all parents of S1-6 students.
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.
Today, Eyemouth High School’s Head Team for 2016/17 was announced! You can find the details below;
- Head Boy – Lewis Murray
- Head Girl – Sophie Ritchie
- Depute Head Boys – Duncan Hardie & Ross Slack
- Depute Head Girls – Izzi Maclean & Suzanna Hammersley
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.
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

Eyemouth High School’s parent council held a coffee morning and tabletop sale in Coldingham Village Hall on Saturday 9th April. They were also joined by some teachers, parents and students from the school who helped out on the day. The event was a great success, both in terms of fundraising with the total raised a fantastic £283.90, and in raising awareness of what the parent council do in the community.
There was a wide variety of local produce on sale, from the Roadhouse Gallery to Avon, Candles by Roxanne to jewelry from ‘Susa’, and all manner of things in between. The parent council managed their own plant sale, raffle and cake and candy stalls and served out teas, coffees and scones to the visitors. The whole atmosphere was great and had a real buzz about it, partly due to the great venue. Student Abby Lannagan added a bit of background piano music to the mix.
The event had been well-publicised and was well-attended on the day. Parent Council Chair, Rieke Hettrick said “I’m really grateful for the support the community gave us in visiting our coffee morning and I’m proud of our students coming, mucking in and helping out. They are great ambassadors for their school”. Members of the school Head Team and Hiymooth Eye attended, as well as other students. It was brilliant to see that the whole community was involved.
The Parent Council are brilliant in the school as they support and encourage many students’ endeavours into the wider world and fund a variety of activities to enhance students’ educational and wider experiences. They have helped with a huge range of causes in the past, from school trips to raspberry pi computers and continue to provide much-appreciated support within the school community.
Everyone said they were pleased with both the funds raised and the turnout on the day. The Parent Council would like to thank everyone who attended for their help and support and they hope to see more events like this in the future.
