Open Evening at Portobello High School – Thursday 20th September 2018 (6:30 – 9:00p.m)
It may seem very early in the new session to be thinking about the Transition programme for 2018 / 2019. Nevertheless, we feel that it is important to make this contact with our prospective parents / carers and pupils before schooling decisions have to be taken by you. My colleagues and I would like to extend a warm invitation to you and to your child to an Open Evening in the High School on the evening of Thursday, 20th September 2018, starting at 6:30 p.m. in the School Hall.
Our evening will start with a short musical performance from some of our pupils, followed by a short introductory session which will describe the liaison programme that we have developed with our associated primaries. There will also be an opportunity for you to see our wonderful new building, visit a selection of our departments and see some of our pupils at work with their teachers. You should receive a copy of our School Handbook in December which will be issued through the Primary Schools. The school now has its own website which can be accessed at http://portobellohighschool.org.uk. This site contains a lot of information about the school and is updated regularly.
Another meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, 5th June 2019 at 7pm- 9pm, when we will take a more detailed look at what Portobello High School has to offer to you and your child. Prior to that meeting, staff from the High School will visit the primaries to talk to the Primary 7 classes. In addition, there will be regular contact with the staff of our associated Primary Schools.
If you would like to visit the school during the working day, then I would encourage you to contact me here at the school, so that a mutually convenient time can be arranged.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any questions that you would like answered concerning the school. I look forward to meeting you on the 20th September 2018.
