All S4 students are given the opportunity to undertake a week’s work experience during the course of the year. The letter issued to parents regarding this is here.
If students are finding their own work placements, this form MUST be completed by the employer and returned to their Guidance teacher by no later than 21 September.
A copy of the Letter of Understanding between the Councils and Firms or Organisations providing Work Experience Placements is available to download here.
Here’s something of interest to many of our leavers. Edinburgh College is holding an open day for programmes in the creative industries. It’s to be on Wednesday, 13 August, from 10 to 3. Here’s a great chance to learn the way forward in music production, the performing arts, broadcasting, or art and design.
Edinburgh College has several campuses. Find out which one to go to, for which field within creative industries, here.
Go along, meet the lecturers, and have an exciting time!
We have a 15-year-old percussionist coming to the Music School for a year, from Germany. She is the daughter of an orchestral percussionist, which probably helps explain her top-ten ranking in national music competitions recently. Her father is looking for a host family for her, starting this August. He is happy, of course, to cover her living expenses.
If you or another Broughton family might be interested, please drop a line to email@example.com, and we will send it on. There is performance video, which is very impressive!
Please let us know.
The P7 Transition section on the school website has just been updated. Here is the link if you want to have a quick look. The main new points are the Timeline for Parents of the main transition events and the S1 Enrolments section which has all the information about how to apply for places / non-catchment etc. This also has web links to the Placing in Schools Booklet as well as the online non-catchment application form and a downloadable copy of the non-catchment form if parents prefer paper.
