Our Parent Council has requested additional learning opportunities during the Easter break in preparation for SQA exams.
As a result of this request, a number of staff will be in school during the Easter holidays to offer revision classes.
I would like to encourage all pupils to take advantage of these opportunities.

The final draft of our school vision, values and aims is now complete. There has been input from Carluke HS staff, over 400 parents, over 900 pupils and a variety of partners. We have shared this at assemblies, parental information evenings, staff meetings and at the Parent Council. All P5, P6 and P7 parents from our associated primaries have been invited to presentations.

Overall, there has been a very positive response.
We would like to confirm this document as the foundation of our school improvement for the coming years.

Carluke High School will be holding a Crazy Hair Day on Tuesday 31st March.
All pupils are invited to take part by coming to school sporting a crazy hair style along with a £1 donation for CHAS (The Children’s Hospice Association Scotland)
If any pupil does not want to mess up their hair, that’s fine, but if they could still bring a £1 donation to support CHAS. That would be terrific!!!!
Can you do better than this?
Thank you for taking part in the Scottish Youth Parliament's research project that aims to find out what young people think about poverty in Scotland.
The Scottish Youth Parliament is the democratically elected voice of Scotland's young people, and we campaign on issues that matter most to Scotland's young people to ensure our voices are heard.
We are currently running a campaign called: POVERTY: See It Change It, which seeks to raise awareness about child and youth poverty in Scotland, and challenge stigma and stereotypes associated with poverty.
We hope this survey will inform a variety of people, from youth workers, to charities, to politicians, to the wider public. We also want this survey to give young people a voice, and have a say about matters that affect them.
Consultation Proposal Document
I am writing to let you know on 19 February 2015 the Council set its budget for 2015/16 at £677m. Taking account of the financial constraints it faces, it also passed a £17.6m savings package. Education Resources accounts for 45% of the Council’s budget however due to education being viewed as a priority it contributed only 13% towards the savings package.
Included within the savings package was the proposal to increase the qualification for entitlement to free mainstream school transport for secondary pupils from more than 2 miles to more than 3 miles (4,827m). This saving proposal was approved subject to any statutory consultation requirements.
The Council’s criteria for evaluating safe walking routes, with the child being accompanied by a responsible adult, will remain.
A statutory consultation of this proposal will begin on Monday 16 March 2015 and close on Wednesday 13 May 2015.
A Clydesdale meeting will take place to discuss the proposal on Tuesday, 21 April 2015 6pm – 8pm at Lanark Grammar School
An on-line survey will be available from the 16 March 2015 by visiting http://tinyurl.com/slctransport2015
The consultation document will also be available to view here on-line and can be found on the South Lanarkshire Council website www.southlanarkshire.gov.uk/schoolsconsultation which has a feedback form which can be completed and returned to Education Resources by the closing date of 13 May 2015. A paper copy can be viewed at secondary schools.
Further details on the consultation and dates for public meetings are contained within the consultation proposal document.

Monday 22nd & Tuesday 23rd of June 2015
Following on from last year’s great success, Carluke High School is again offering an Activities Programme for pupils during the last week of term. During this time, normal school timetable will be suspended and pupils will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of educational/fun experiences not normally available during the school session.
A great deal of care has been taken to provide a variety of activities and destinations, and this year a number of new activities are on offer. Hopefully this will ensure that everyone can find something that appeals. Nearer the time, appropriate clothing for each activity will be suggested by the group leader and, on the days, pupils entitled to a school lunch will be catered for if required.

2nd – Milton (27 points)
3rd – Lee (24 points)
4th – Belstane/Kirkton/Halbar (21 points)
WELL DONE DOUGLAS HOUSE!!
The quiz consisted of two rounds. The first round was interactive and included activities such as eating a fair-trade cookie as quickly as possible and taking part in a balloon relay. The second round was “Million Pound Drop” (Ms Robinson made a very good Davina McCall!). We hope both staff and pupils had fun whilst raising awareness of a very good cause!
Thank you to all who were involved.
