We welcome our student and staff visitors from both Germany and France to Forrester High School to embark on another week of Comenius. 14 of our students are hosting a visitor in their homes. They will be working very hard each morning on an exciting programme and then taking part in some excursions around Edinburgh and Stirling in the afternoons. We have a themed party at the school on Thursday evening with a Scottish line up of haggis, neeps and tatties! Keep watching our website and twitter feed for more updates and pictures.

Speed limit

A consultation is underway to help draw up plans for new 20 mph speed limits across Edinburgh. Following a successful pilot in South Edinburgh, a 20 mph speed limit is now proposed for the City Centre, main shopping streets and residential areas. Whatever your views about our 20 mph speed limit proposals, we want to hear from you.  You can email your views to the address below or use the online questionnaire.  Drop-in events, public meetings and exhibitions are also taking place across the city.

An interactive map of the draft proposals, a list of frequently asked questions and details of the engagement events are available on the Council’s website at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph

The consultation is open and you can feedback until 17 October.

Scotmid 1 Scotmid 2

At the end of the summer school term we applied for a Scotmid Community Grant to help purchase new strips for the new S3 football team. The grant was successful and the team, who won their respective league last season, will now play in brand new Strips in the Forrester High School colours. A massive thank you to Scotmid from all the staff and players for their support in achieving this.
