Edinburgh Leisure are running an NRG zone camp in the gym at Dalry where 11-15 year olds can learn to use the gym equipment correctly over the course of 5 days and be accredited to use the gym on their own before they are 16. This will be running 14th-18th October during the school holidays between 1.30-2.30pm. Full details are on the poster attached.
Please see the attached letter from Andy Gray, Head of Schools and Lifelong Learning, regarding the planned Climate Change protest scheduled to take place on Friday 20 September 2019. A portion of the letter is also copied below.
“The Education Committee voted, on 16 August, to allow pupils to participate in one Climate Change protest during session 2019-2020 which will be categorised as an authorised absence. This will be for the next protest which is scheduled to take place on Friday 20 September.
Edinburgh schools will be open and operating normally on 20 September. Pupils who wish to participate in the Climate Change protest and who are not at school on that morning will be marked as an authorised absence if their parent/carer has written to confirm their absence in advance and accept responsibility for their safety.”
