Graduation 2020

Student Update

You will be aware that we were reviewing our plans for our 2020 graduation ceremonies in light of the current health crisis.

Unfortunately, we have taken the difficult decision not to hold our graduation events this year.   The events were unlikely to be able to go ahead in their traditional format in line with current government guidelines and there are too many uncertainties around how these will change over the coming months.

Most importantly, we felt it was the right decision to make in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students and their friends and families.  

We realise that many of you will be disappointed however we hope you will understand why we are not going ahead with the events.

We still plan to celebrate the success of all students eligible to graduate in a number of ways including:

  • Commemorative booklet will be sent out to graduates along with a certificate and a card from the Principal
  • Video message from the Principal
  • Graduation features in all three local newspapers – Alloa Advertiser, Falkirk Herald and Stirling Observer
  • Activity across all our social media platforms

 

The above activities will take place w/c Monday 5 October in line with our normal graduation timeline.

You should all be exceptionally proud of what you have achieved over the past year and we wish you every success in your next steps.
