Uniform Consultation

Dear Parents/Carers, 

As we know, moving into the new school is not so far away. There has been a focus group set up within the school which have discussed many possibilities from new school colours to whether all pupils should wear blazers or not.  It was apparent from the pupil focus groups that they believed there should be a change and all pupils, from S1 - S6, should wear blazers.  The following link is to give you your say.  Could you give one minute of your time to click on the link and vote whether or not all pupils should wear blazers.
