join in. These classes will provide children opportunities to experience Chinese culture. They
may also lead to performance opportunities in the future. Due to the new policy of Drummond
Community High School, our after-school club would have to finish by 12:30 pm.

Thank you very much for your support! We would like to work with parents to create a better
learning environment for our students. If you have any questions, requests or suggestions,

Police Scotland circulates security advice

Periodically Police Scotland circulates security advice to different community groups during significant dates throughout the year for varying communities. During this year we have sent out security advice to the Muslim community around the Hajj period, the Jewish community around High Holy Days and the wider community around the festive holiday period. As such we are aware that February sees the Chinese community celebrate Chinese New Year and therefore would like you to share the following advice at a time when members of the community may be away from their homes or businesses for unusually extended periods of time.

Small Shop Security Advice

Please contact me if you any further questions.

Kind regards,
