We have had a tremendous start to the year with our ‘I Bike’ initiative. The school now has a fantastic bike shelter over the bike racks which is a lovely blue colour; as voted for by our pupils. We have had regular Bike Breakfasts this term for pupils that have walked, cycled or scooted to school and it is great to see so many getting to school in a healthy way each day.
Parents had the opportunity to join us on Friday for our Macmillan Coffee Afternoon. P7 pupils organised this event and raised over £500 for this fantastic cause – well done.
Throughout the school our pupils have been working hard since returning to school. They have engaged with thinking about values – so far we have looked at Friendship and Honesty. Every class is completing work related to these values and this will continue over the year.
In every class pupils have been learning French as part of the 1 + 2 initiative which has been rolled out across Scotland. We have a ‘Word of the Week’ which pupils should know!
