Our Summer holiday seems a distant memory as we settle back in to school life. All the children have come back looking very smart in their school uniforms. We are delighted to welcome a number of new families to the school. Some have moved from other schools in the town and several have moved to Hawick, so we are looking forward to sharing information about all the things the school and Hawick have to offer. We are delighted to see the new Nursery children and P1 children settle in so quickly. They are enjoying their new experiences and getting to know their new routines and procedures.
We said farewell to Miss Hall and Miss Scott at the end of last session. They had not been with us long but certainly made a positive impact in the time they were with us. We wish them both every success in the future. We have one new member of staff. Miss Caldwell has joined us for the year for her Newly Qualified Teacher year. (NQT)
Our inspection report has now been published and we were delighted to see so many of the positive strengths in the school highlighted in the report. We have also come back to the fantastic news that we have been awarded the Sports Scotland GOLD Award. The sports committee worked hard to put together a range of evidence to showcase the huge amount of work that is done to deliver, promote and celebrate sport in our school. We are the first (along with Priosford PS) Primary School in the Scottish Borders to be given the Gold Award.
We are looking forward to another exciting year with lots of activities, trips and events planned already. We want the best for all our children so please be assured we will do our very best to support, challenge and encourage all our children.
