School Blazer Information for Students in S5 and S6

Dear Parent/Carer,

Earlier this session S6 students approached me to request a blazer as part of their uniform. Unfortunately, at this time it was felt that it was too late in the term to ask families to invest in these. However, the idea was discussed at the Parent Council and it was decided that from session 2017/18 students in S5 and S6 would be allowed to purchase and wear blazers.

The company Academy Blazers have been appointed to provide these items and have been working with us on our school badge. Costs for students have been subsidised by Aberdeen Asset Management for which we are very grateful, and are as follows:

Blazer  £30.00
Blazer (students on free school meals)  £15.00
Blazer for House Captains  Free

On Wednesday 14th June Academy Blazers will come into school to size and fit blazers. All students who wish a blazer must attend on this date. A £5.00 deposit is required by Thursday 29th June to secure the order and to ensure that the blazer is delivered and fitted during the first week back of the new term.

Financial assistance may be available for students not in receipt of free school meals. Please contact your child’s guidance (Pupil Support) teacher if you would like to request this.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding this.

Yours sincerely,

Hazel Kinnear
Head Teacher
