Mrs McLean’s timetable

Mrs McLean’s timetable was updated on November 1st.  It mainly affects Tuesday rotations.  Thursdays are unaffected.  Mondays have a small change to groupings.  Please see Mrs McLean’s page to view the new timetable.

Parents’ Evening – Tuesday 29th October 2019

The Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 29th October 2019 will take place in the Main Hall (North Campus) and will be made up of two parts:

19:00 – 19:30  General meeting for parents new to the Music Instruction programme in Jordanhill School. (both primary and secondary)

19:30 – 21:30  Appointments for parents of Secondary pupils only.  Please click on the relevant instructor’s name below to view appointment times.  An asterisk in front of a name denotes that this family has more than one appointment.  The five minute appointment slot should be adhered to so that the evening can run smoothly.  Please note that due to numbers of pupils exceeding appointment slots available, Mrs McLean and Mr Langford are not able to see parents of all pupils.  Some pupils have been put into group appointments so that as many people can be accommodated as possible.

Please let the Music Department know if you are unable to attend.  Thank you.
