Meaningful May Programme

Pupils in S4 sitting less than four SQA examinations are entitled to 3 days study leave before their exam. When they are not on study leave, students take part in an alternative school programme called Meaningful May, running Tuesdays – Fridays. This will include a range of in school and out of school events.

Meaningful May – Student Arrangements

  • Arrive in school at 10am
  • Meet in the Sixth Form Area (next to the library) to register and receive information regarding the day.

–  It is important that all Students are on time and in uniform. 

– If Students have not completed their National 4 Unit Assessments, or other important pieces of work, they will be asked to attend classes rather than the activities – this information will be shared with students at the start of each day.
