Curriculum for Excellence comes under the Spotlight

Issued: 18 Oct 2010

The new Curriculum for Excellence will come under the spotlight at the next Dingwall and Seaforth Ward Forum to be held in Dingwall on Wednesday 27th October.

The Forum will hear from Dingwall Academy Rector, Graham MacKenzie, Assistant Rector Karen Cormack and also from pupils how the Curriculum for Excellence will work in the school.

Councillor Margaret Paterson, who is chairing the meeting, commented that it is also an excellent opportunity for the public, and for those parents who may not have had the opportunity to attend briefing sessions held in the Academy, to hear about the Curriculum and how it will bring learning to life in the way education is to be delivered.

Councillor Paterson added that prior to the Forum there would be a staffed information display on the Highland Wide Local Development Plan in the Academy foyer from 6pm to 7pm offering people the opportunity to have their say on the proposed plan which is out to public consultation until 3rd December 2010.

The Forum is held in public and those wishing to attending are asked to note that this meeting will take place in the Multi Purpose Hall in Dingwall Academy from 7pm - 9pm. There is also a public question and answer session at the close of the meeting.

If you have an enquiry about the Forum; would like to submit questions in advance of the meeting; or have any special requirements/needs to help you take part, please contact Dingwall and Seaforth Ward Manager, Liz Cowie, on 01349 868681 or by e-mailing liz.cowie@highland.gov.uk
