I am very pleased to share with you a first round-up of some of our success and achievements since the beginning of term. Having returned to some very positive SQA results, and our best ever attainment at National 5 and Higher level, we continue to offer very rich and rewarding learning experiences to all students. Having met a large number of our prospective parents and carers at our Open Evening I look forward to meeting with all of our current S1 parents and carers later this month. Hazel Kinnear, Head Teacher

A message from Ricky Karoyan, our Active Schools Co-ordinator –
“Hello!  My name is Ricky Karoyan and I am the Active Schools Co-ordinator fo
r Tynecastle High School and cluster Primary schools. I am based in the Music base so please come and say hello on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I aim to offer lots of fun and different sports/activity sessions which will appeal to the wide range of interests that we have in the school population. I can also offer great volunteer opportunities within the school where pupils/parents/staff can assist with or lead sessions where you can access our ‘Fit to Coach programme’. Please get in touch if you would like me to introduce a new club or if you would like to get involved in our programme in any way.”
