S1 CfE Information Evening

A large number of parents of S1 students participated in a very successful Information Evening on Monday 15 September, a key part of our overall transition process. They heard about the principles of Curriculum for Excellence, and then had the opportunity to both experience  as ‘students’ some lessons in Science, English, Art, PE and Social Subjects, and to take part in workshops where they were able to ask questions of students in S4 and S5 who have had the full “CfE Experience”. In addition, they were able to hear about new qualifications, and to find our more about “Show My Homework”. The evening was very highly evaluated by parents.
