Dear Parent/Carers

 

  • If your young person has a pair of personal headphones, could they remember to bring these in their schoolbag - this will remove the need for young people to share headphones in Technical, Music and ICT Class.  

 

  • The school has sinks with soap and water in every classroom and 10 hand sanitising stations located at key points in the school.  There is no requirement for your child to bring his/her own bottle of hand-sanitiser. Over use can cause skin irritation.  Help us  to help our young people to maintain good hand hygiene while avoiding any skin injury or irritation.

 

  • During lockdown we issued a large number of English and Maths textbooks to support home learning.  We would be grateful if you have a text book at home that you pack in your child's schoolbag to return when they come to school this week.

Home Learning Packs

Following yesterday's announcement from the First minister we will have a Home Learning Pack ready to collect for each pupil attending Cardinal Winning Secondary School during the day on Friday 20th March.  These packs include learning resources and links to online learning which will help ensure your young person's education can continue at home during this challenging time.  We realise that many of our young people will require support in order to engage with several of the tasks in the packs; please feel free to contact myself with any related queries.

I am aware that in some cases teachers have already sent learning packs home with young people - if you have already received a pack and are unsure if there is another additional pack to be collected, please phone and we will clarify.

If you have no means to collect your young person's pack from the school building, please phone/email to let us know and we will endeavour to home deliver packs as best we can.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership.  We wish all of our school community good health and safety during this time.

It is with great sadness we must inform you one of our most valued and loved colleagues and friend - Paula Elliott passed away yesterday.

Mr McDonald described her as one of the most inspiring and successful teachers who was at the heart of our school community. She taught with enthusiasm, understanding and with joy. Our school has been enriched by the work of this talented young teacher and she will be forever remembered and forever missed.


Paula was only 28 years old and married to husband Liam.  Our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

Arnold Clark Installs CCTV in Cardinal Winning

Thanks to Arnold Clark for purchasing and installing CCTV Security Cameras in our school.  This very reputable car dealership who have several showrooms in the locality of our school heard about our recent break-ins and read the articles in the Evening Times.  Deciding to take action the contacted Mr McDonald and agreed to pay for and install several security cameras around the school which operate day and night.  The cameras were installed in January but already have been used to identify intruders trying to force entry which has led to an arrest.

Mr McDonald says staff and pupils feel grateful to Arnold Clark Corporate Services for taking such a personal interest in our school and making us feel safer and more secure.  The cameras will record all intruders within our school campus and help us work with Community Policing to apprehend people who wish to steal from our children or destroy their work.

New Playground for Cardinal Winning Pupils

Susan Wilson the Tesco Community Champion visited our school today to officially open our new playground.  Susan has been a fantastic help getting donations for our playground and introduced us to Tesco Bags for Help.  We were very fortunate to be awarded £10,000 from the Tesco Bags for Help and were able to purchase swings, a wobble bridge and line markings for our new tricycles.  The pupils just love all the new equipment and have been enjoying them since April.  We are very grateful to Rona Sweeney who took the time to apply for the grant and can honestly say this has made a huge difference to the pupils of Cardinal Winning Secondary.
