School Day

The school day at Melville-Knox starts at 9:30 am and finishes at 3:30 pm for all year groups Monday-Thursday. On Fridays all finish at 12:15 pm. There is a morning break, a lunch break and an afternoon break each day. Pupils are to bring snacks for the breaks and a packed lunch with a drink each day.

Devotions and Assemblies

Every school morning will begin with a school assembly. During the assemblies, pupils will learn to sing Psalms from the Scottish Psalter and will learn from the Shorter Catechism as well as commit passages of scripture to memory. Pupils will also learn Bible stories from the Old and New Testament. Sometimes visitors will be invited to speak at school’s assemblies. Assemblies will close with singing and prayer in which all school staff will be present.
