S1 @ the Vine Conference Centre from Tuesday 3 September
Link Senior Leader: Miss Thomson
- Pupils who normally walk to school can make their own way to the Vine Conference Centre where they'll be welcomed from 9am onwards.
- Regular school buses to Woodmill (WM1-WM5) will continue to run with normal pick up points and times in the morning, dropping pupils off at new bus bays located on Woodmill Road, by St Columba’s HS, for 08:30.
- From the bus drop off points, S1 pupils will walk to the Vine Conference Centre. Buses home will also leave from Woodmill Road at 3:25pm.
- Any parents wishing to drive their young person directly to/from the venue should bear in mind that traffic is busy in the area around Touch Primary School at the start and end of the school day.
- The school day will begin at the Vine Conference Centre at 9:10am and finish at 3:00pm, leaving travelling time to get buses back at St Columba’s for any extended homeward journeys at 3.25pm
- The S1 times will include 3 x 1hr 40-minute blocks a day, a 15-minute morning break and a 40-minute lunch break when pupils will remain on site.
- Hot and cold lunch options will be provided in the canteen by the council, this will include free school meals. Pupils should bring cash to pay for their lunches, or bring a packed lunch if they prefer.
- It is important that our young people wear full Woodmill School uniform, including their ties.
It's important that our first years settle into a routine focussed around their learning.
We will continue to develop the curriculum on offer to S1 and will be in regular contact with parents.
Thank you to our hosts who have been so accommodating www.vineconference.co.uk
