Happy New Year to all our families. We hope that everyone as enjoyed the first day back!
Coming home in bags this week are our dates for cuddle on the couch in the Yellow Wing and Book and a Blether in the Green and Purple Wings. We look forward to seeing lots of parents, carers and family members at these events. You can also find the dates below.
Congratulations to all the pupils, parents and members of our community who have been helping us with our grounds since April 2018, we now have successfully achieved Levels 1 and 2 of the RHS School Gardening Achievement Awards. More information about this can be found here School Gardening with RHS
This highlights that we understand the benefits for pupils of gardening and have planned, grown and developed the planters by the classrooms as well as tackling the weeds in the vegetable beds. With certificates, a calendar and book to help us we are getting inspired to grow even more in the coming year we hope to gain our next level very soon.

As part of our school curriculum we have incorporated opportunities for classes to lead on whole school events, to develop their confidence and leadership skills. Primary 3 classes will also be extending their understanding of charities through this experience.
Children are also encouraged to come to school on this day dressed in casual clothes for a small donation of 50p per child or £1 per family.
Any donations of home baking would be greatly appreciated and can be handed in to the school office on Thursday 27th September.
We look forward to welcoming parents, carers and members of the local community to this worthwhile event.
Our calendar of events for the 2018/2019 session was sent home on Friday. You can find electronic versions of it here.
Tomorrow (Tuesday 4th September) we will be hosting our ‘Meet the Teacher evening’. This is a great opportunity for you to come and put a face to the name of your child’s class teacher and have a tour of their classroom and ‘wing’.
This is a drop in event which your child can attend along with you. It will run from 5:00pm till 6.30pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
