RE: School Blazers
You will no doubt have seen our pupils looking extremely smart in their Dumfries High School blazers since we introduced them as part of the school uniform five years ago. Our expectation is that as many of our pupils as possible are in blazers this year. I have arranged for Academy Uniforms to come into school to do blazer fittings in the hall as follows:
Tuesday 27th June: blazer fitting from 3.35 – 5.30pm
Wednesday 28th June: blazer fitting from 4.30 – 6.30pm
Blazers cost £31.50 and are made of a durable, waterproof and machine washable fabric. Academy Uniforms will handle and process all orders and payments. Please come along with your child to whichever fitting suits you if you wish to order a blazer. Blazers will be ready for collection from school on Tuesday 15th August from 10.30 – 11.30am.
Please note the cost of the Meal Deals in the canteen will be increasing to £1.90 effective from 18th April 2017.
Appointment of Acting Head Teacher
I am pleased to report that Mr J. Farquhar, currently Depute Head Teacher at Dumfries Academy, has been appointed as the Acting Head Teacher with effect from Tuesday 18 April. Mr Farquhar is delighted to be joining our school community and I have every confidence that under his leadership the school will continue to thrive.
Mr Farquhar will be in communication with you as soon as he is in post but I wanted to share this information with you as soon as I received it.
I am confident that I will be leaving the school in good hands and I am sure you will join me in welcoming Mr Farquhar to Dumfries High School.
Dear Pupils, Parents/Carers
RED NOSE DAY IN DUMFRIES HIGH SCHOOL, FRIDAY 24 MARCH 2017
Red Nose Day is an event that Dumfries High School has supported for a number of years. This year’s Red Nose Day is on Friday 24 March. We are supporting Red Nose Day with a Non-Uniform day. If pupils wish to support this worthy cause, then they can donate £1 which will be collected during registration classes on Friday morning. Pupils are reminded that they are not to wear any football colours or clothing which has foul language or inappropriate symbols. If of course there are any pupils who do not wish to support Red Nose Day, then they should come to school wearing full school uniform as normal.
We thank you in advance for your support.
I wanted to let you know that I will be leaving after the Easter holidays to take up the post of Head Teacher at Irvine Royal Academy in North Ayrshire. My final leaving date has still to be confirmed but once I know I will of course communicate this with you. Please know that my decision to leave was difficult because I am forever heartened by each and every single pupil in our school and the positivity and motivating factors that they bring every day.
