Letter to Parent/Carer
14 January 2015
The Prelim Exams for our S4, S5 and S6 pupils are taking place from Thursday 22 January until Friday 30 January. The pupils have all been issued with an exam timetable. Every pupil in S4, S5 and S6 will be on Study Leave from 22 January until 30 January. This means that normal lessons will finish on Wednesday 21 January at 3.15pm and they will resume again on Monday 2 February at 8.50am.
Please encourage your son/daughter to take full responsibility to use their Study Leave wisely and to be in 15 minutes early for their exam. These exams will be treated as seriously as the SQA exams in May therefore all pupils must put in the correct preparation, concentration and effort in order to obtain the best possible results.
I wish the pupils all the best with their exams. If you have any questions about any aspect of the Prelim Exams, or indeed any matter regarding your son/daughter’s schooling, please feel free to phone me on the above number. The Timetable can be found here.

Patronal Feast Day
His Grace Archbishop Philip Tartaglia joined local clergy, staff, pupils, Maureen McKenna and many other visitors from all walks of life as our school community celebrated the feast day of our patron, Saint Roch.
During this special day His Grace formally opened and blessed the new school oratory during a short service before celebrating Mass in the assembly hall, during which he acknowledged the significant contribution that parishioners from our community have made over the years to the Catholic Church in Scotland; and speaking fondly of growing up nearby in Dennistoun, His Grace informed the congregation that his father, Guido, was in fact a former pupil of Saint Roch’s.
Joining the celebrations were pupils of Saint Roch’s Primary school and their head teacher, Mrs. McNulty.
Afterwards, pupils and visitors joined together with members of the local community to enjoy some refreshments and treats to mark this special occasion.
The Chaplaincy team would like to thank all who attended and who participated in the organising of this special day.

Deaf sailor Gerry Hughes completes epic solo voyage around the world
He has had to overcome rough seas, faulty equipment and his own deafness but Gerry Hughes is now celebrating after completing a record solo voyage.
The 55-year-old Saint Roch's science teacher became the first deaf person to sail around the world single-handedly – and one of only 300 sailors to complete the feat.
Hundreds of admirers lined Troon Marina in South Ayrshire to watch him return more than eight months and 51,500km (32,000 miles) since he set off in his boat Quest III. ‘It has been a lifelong ambition to sail around the world so it is difficult at the moment to comprehend what I have finally achieved,’ Mr Hughes said.
‘The last eight months have been amongst the toughest of my life but despite all the challenges of the expedition, it has been a period I have thoroughly enjoyed.
‘Sailing has always been my first love and it provided a real escape from my deafness when I was a youngster.’ Mr Hughes was introduced to sailing by his father as a two-year-old and wanted to sail around the since he was 14.
The married father-of-two set off on his fraught voyage around the five capes on September 1.
On one leg his boat even capsized as a result of massive waves. He has also suffered continued problems with his onboard electronic equipment. He was able to communicate with 3,000 supporters on his Facebook page.
His wife Kay, 47, was ‘overwhelmed and immensely proud’ of his feat.
