We have news of an opportunity for students and their parents to meet with a representative from the University of Oxford at an event in Edinburgh on 4 September.
The City of Edinburgh Council have recently asked Edinburgh Leisure to process block bookings for sports clubs at all High Schools. This is a separate piece of work to the ongoing conversations about ‘operational transfer’ of High School sports facilities to Edinburgh Leisure to operate community time (after 6.00pm weekdays, weekends and holiday periods).

A reminder that school starts again for the new session on Wednesday, 16 August for all pupils. Please remember to wear full school uniform.
Scottish Gas are running two week-long work experience courses in Edinburgh which will start on 31 July.
Thes courses may be suitable for students who are finishing school, college or university soon and looking for a work experience opportunity during July and August. Although unpaid, these great opportunities can help people if they are trapped in the vicious circle of being unable to get a job because they don’t have experience, but they can’t get experience because they don’t have a job. Our programmes are designed to help people gain new skills and experience to help them into the world of work or further education.
