The Community Quiz Trail MAP REVEAL

Teachers have hidden quiz questions all over Menstrie. Look out for these posters while you are out on your walks around the community. There are 10 stations, each with three questions (one for P1-2s, P3-4’s, P5-7’s) as well as a code letter so you can decode the special word.

Remember social distancing of 2 metres and stay safe when crossing roads.

Here is a map to help you find any you have missed. Quiz Trail Map

Here’s a brief video with some of the teacher’s hiding the stations while keeping their 2m distance and taking care crossing the roads on Thursday evening.

You can write your answers down on scrap paper, on your phone or you can download and print the Quiz Trail Answer Sheet.

Good luck and enjoy.

This week is Mental Health Week.

This week is Mental Health Week. More then ever it is so important to be aware of our Mental Health and how we can try new things or make routines to help us stay mentally healthy. 

 

Here are some great tips for children and adults to try this week to be kind to ourselves and others to help us keep mental healthy. 

 

Why not give them a go as a family, or share some tips with those you are keeping in contact with over social media. Share with us or your class what you tried. Let us know what you do already and share how this could help others.

Have fun and stay safe,

School Uniform

Dear Parents

Although we do not know when or how we will return to Menstrie Primary School, we are very aware that it is usually now that parents are starting to think about school uniform for their child starting Primary 1.

Each year, parents are asked to dress their children in the school uniform, which is as follows:

  • Grey/Black trousers/skirt
  • White poloshirt
  • Royal blue sweatshirt/cardigan

Normally parents would be able to order through the school, however due to Covid-19 and the restrictions this places on us with regards to access to the school building etc, we have been encouraged by the company we use (Border Embroideries) to direct parents to their website for ordering.

You can visit https://www.border-embroideries.co.uk/ if you would like to order from here.  Please read the Covid-19 update before placing any orders.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at menstrie@edu.clacks.gov.uk if you have any queries about school uniform.
