Well Done Team Alford!

We’ve made it!  It’s been a good term.  Thanks to all our pupils for working so well with us and to our dedicated staff team for all their work. Now EVERYONE switch off from school, rest and relax.  Have a good two weeks, make sure you do your part to keep yourself and others safe from Covid -19. Take care, stay safe and I look forward to seeing you back at school on Monday 26 October. Mrs Milne

School’s Out for Summer

Well done and thank you Team Alford!

As school session 2019-2020 draws to a close, the year of lockdown, no SQA exams and learning from home, it’s time for everyone to switch off from school work and relax.  We leave you with this special message today to celebrate how well we work together.

All in this together

We’ll be in touch with pupils and parents again at the beginning of August.  Stay safe and well and enjoy a well deserved holiday!

A huge thanks to everyone for working together so well these past weeks.  Through our social media we are sharing some of the  amazing work that’s going on, it’s wow!  A special ‘shout out’ today to our Session 2020-2021 S6 , S5 and S4 leavers, I hope you are all doing okay, you are still very much in our minds and we’ll be in touch again with you  soon.   In the meantime, we have a long weekend to look forward to and need to ‘switch- off’ now and enjoy the lovely weather safely.
