I hope you are all well and settling into the new term. I am delighted to share with you information on a new P4/5 Multi Sport Community Club which is going to start on Wednesday 21st September from 4.30-5.30pm at Holy Cross High School and run for 4 weeks. The club will be led by our Sports Coach Academy pupils from across the Hamilton area and always supervised by myself and my colleagues. Please could you share the following link to your P4 and P5 parents/guardians for them to sign up for the club. This could be shared to your school app or twitter page.
All permissions etc are taken from the form so we don’t need any paper copies. If you have any pupils without access to the internet, please let me know and I can drop in a paper permission form.
We look forward to welcoming your pupils to the club !!!
You may recall that we let you
know earlier about the potential impact of targeted industrial action by the
Local Government Trade Unions.
I can now confirm that there is
extensive support from a wide range of unions for the 3-day strike on Tuesday
6 September, Wednesday 7 September and Thursday 8 September 2022.
Given the impact that this
withdrawal of labour by janitorial, cleaning, catering and support staff will
have the Council has taken the decision to close the school on health and
safety grounds on these days.
council is making arrangements to help those families who are entitled to a
free school meal. A free school meal payment of £7.50 is expected to be made by
Thursday 8 September 2022. The payment
will be made directly into bank accounts. However, if there is an issue, please contact
us and we will support you in this regard.
We regret the inconvenience that
the school closure will cause families and at this stage would urge you to make
plans for alternative arrangements for your child during this time.
The school will re-open again on
Friday 9 September 2022.
