We have a dedicated page for all pupils currently in P7, who would be enjoying transition days with us in the building of Marr College over the next few weeks. ALthough we cannot get you all in at the moment we do have some online material being created by departments and support staff to ensure that when you do step through our doors in the purple and gold you know us all a little bit.
Starting today the P7 Transition page has a handy little guide to Marr for you to view or download as well as information for all parents.
It is still very much business as usual at SAAS. The Online Application service is now open and their General Enquiry Unit are dealing with email and voicemail correspondence on a daily basis. Pupils can get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ option in their online account if they have any specific queries.
The Funding Awareness Team were scheduled to attend many schools across the country in the coming months which obviously cannot now go ahead so they are currently working on a toolkit of support available and scheduling online sessions on our Social Media channels which will be shared in the coming weeks.
If any pupil is unsure of applications or have any queries please check out SAAS Application Help video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJ3hUrcjpGY This may be useful to view before completing your application for support.
Remember SAAS also have a Youtube channel where they post many videos all to support the application process. Go check them out. - https://www.youtube.com/user/fundingawareness

Mental Health was voted as one of the main issues affecting young people in todays society by a survey carried out by the South Ayrshire Youth forum in 2016 and followed up by the recent Say It Out LOUD survey completed this week.
Here at Marr College we are working together to ensure that our staff and pupils learn and teach in safe and stable environment, where their health and wellbeing is at the forefront of all we do. To support this our guidance staff have compiled a series of pages that bring together information from various online support services to create a one stop shop for all our young people and the adults that work with them. Please browse the range of information available and do not hesitate to get in touch.
