SHELL GARAGE

The Shell Garage by the roundabout is now out of bounds to pupils at break and lunch time. Any pupil attempting to use the garage shop will be refused service. Persistent attempts to enter the premises at these times by Newbattle pupils will result in these individuals remaining within the school grounds at break and lunch time.

The measures have been introduced in order to continue building trusting and respectful relationships within our community.

Thank you.

Mr McMillan
