Further to my letter sent to you in January regarding school uniform here at Our Lady and St Patrick’s High School, I am delighted to report that we have now been able to secure a design for our new senior school blazer and tie as requested by the young people themselves. Please see the images below.
Academy Uniform Ltd will be our main uniform supplier for school blazers and ties. Purchases can be made via their website online at www.academyuniformsltd.co.uk and orders can either be sent to the school for collection or directly to your home address.
Colleagues from Academy Uniform will visit the school on the afternoon of Thursday 26th March during which time, pupils in S3-5 will be invited to the assembly hall to be measured for new senior blazers. If you wish to purchase a new blazer for your son/daughter then orders will be accepted during this time with items being delivered to the school for collection and payment in June. We will notify you when the blazers arrive back in school to allow you to make payments.
Prices for school uniform items are as follows:
Junior School Blazer: £29.50
Senior School Blazer w/braiding: £41.50
Should your child’s blazer already be in good condition and of an appropriate size, it can be handed to our colleagues from Academy during their visit on Thursday 26th March who will take it away and add the new gold braiding for a cost of £12. This can be paid once the blazer has been returned to the school.
A stock of senior ties will be held here in the school and will be available from the main office at the price of £4.50. Senior ties are expected to be available from the middle of May, 2015.
It is my hope that all of our senior pupils (S4-6) will have the necessary items of uniform ready for their return in August 2015 for the new academic session.
I would like to thank you for your continuing support with regard to the wearing of full school uniform and ensuring that your child presents themselves in a professional manner for school each day.
OLSP IS TAKING PART IN THE BBC SCHOOL NEWS REPORT
The BBC News School Report this year is focused around our obsession with Digital Technology and Social Media. Taking part in the project are our six budding reporters; Katie B, Martha D, Meghan B, Isla L, Kate McG and Eilidh M. As part of the report, the six pupils and Mr Dunlop have taken part in a three day 'opt out' of using digital technology and social media. This means that they have gone without television, mobile phones, tablets and even digital alarm clocks to see what life would be like without those things around us that we take for granted.
The pupils have not only interviewed and polled staff and pupils in the school, they have also reached out to celebrities and famous social media-ites to help build upon the report. People such as Anne-Marie Tomchak (BBC News TV Reporter who focuses on Social Media) and director Matthew Frost who recently made the short viral film featuring Kirsten Dunst about selfies titled 'ASPIRATIONAL'.
News Day (19th March 2015) should be a great day and you can view the outcome of the reporters hard work below when it has been shot, edited and uploaded.
