Activities Days 2020

Pupils have been advised this week of which trip they have been allocated to for Activities Days next May.

Deposits must be paid by ALL pupils to secure their place on the trip.

The current payment schedule for trips requires a deposit now and four instalments to make up the balance – this information will be on the letter going home this week.

If you wish to discuss a different payment schedule (for example, more smaller instalments) please contact the trip leader when you pay your deposit.

If you wish to apply for a travel grant please see the information and income scales for applying in the following attachments to see if you are eligible and advise the Trip Leader that you are applying when you pay the deposit. If you require a paper copy then let the school know.

If you no longer require your place please inform the trip leader as soon as possible so that your place can be allocated to another pupil.

Final Consultation on Summer School Holidays 2021-2025 

In May 2019 the Aberdeen City Council Education Operations Committee considered the public feedback on the school holiday pattern. They approved retaining the general pattern of school holidays of previous years with the exception of bringing the summer holidays forward by one week. The Committee requested that further consultation should be sought to agree when the summer holidays should start from 2020-21 to 2024-25.

ACC are seeking the views of all parents, school staff and children and young people.

The survey opens Monday 9 September 2019 until Friday 20 September 2019.
