UNCRC – Article 12 – Every child has the right to have their say in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.

In Ferryhill we have 3 pupil committees – Rights Respecting, Pupil Council and Eco Council.  Pupils collect ideas from their classes before reporting these at meetings.  This enables them to make changes to improve their school as well as make decisions surrounding special days such as World Book Day, International Day etc.

UNCRC Article 31 – Children have the right to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities…

We had a very exciting Assembly this week where all the winners of our P1 to P7 Burns poetry recital competition were able to present to the rest of the school.  Ex-Ferryhill pupil Ross Thomson did an excellent job of  piping us in.  This was quickly followed by superb performances from our Highland Dance Club.  Scottish poetry recitals from all pupils were delivered with confidence.

First, Second and Third places for P4 to P7 will go on to represent this school at the NE Burns Federation competition in Portlethern on Saturday 4th March.

UNCRC Article 31 – Children have the right to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities

Last week the infant department were treated to a visit by Kidsgloves Puppet Company. They enjoyed watching several mini shows based on well known fairy tales and fables.  Today some of the children have been writing about the stories they saw.  It was a lovely treat enjoyed by all.

As part of our Robbie Burns celebrations your children have been asked by their teacher to learn a Scottish Poem.  As well as learning it in class pupils are able to take this home and practise.  We ask that they have learned this by Friday 27th January.  Three pupils will be chosen from each class to recite their poem at the Assembly on Friday 3rd February.  Pupils in Primary 4 to Primary 7 will then be chosen to represent the school at the Aberdeen City and Shire regional Burns competition on Saturday 4th March at Portlethen Academy.

We ask that your child wears tartan for our Burn’s Assembly on Friday 3rd February – this can be ‘a touch of tartan’ if you prefer.
