The first week is over and we are settled back into school life!
The First year pupils look happy and are navigating their way confidently arround the school!
Over the next few weeks we will be given the analysis of the SQA results. At Higher the picture was broadly good QMA being above the SA average in most measures. In particular the figure for pupils attaining five Highers was
the best in many years. We had seven pupils attaining 5As at Higher.
Many pupils also performed very well in N5.
The building work for the moment will soon be coming to an end. The scaffold will be coming down as soon as the work on the roof edge is completed. The library is scheduled to be complete before mid-September.
Furniture has been ordered for the maths open area and this will become a S6nstudy area.
This is Mrs Panico’s final week in QMA after 17 years. She is our office Senior. We will
miss her greatly!
The standard of uniform and behaviour is high. We are grateful to our parents this for and would continue to ask for your support this year to hold pupils to this high standard.
