One of our P7’s was inspired by their non fiction reading to write a poem. It’s rather excellent and deserves to be shared, demonstrating some clever language features including alliteration and plays on words, not to mention some super rhyming. Well done Lilian.
The Council and its partners are currently working with Scottish Government through a programme called Realigning Children’s Services to help to improve local services for children in your area. All primary schools in the area have been invited to take part and we are inviting all children in P5 to P7 to complete a short online questionnaire during school time on their lives and wellbeing.
Please find a leaflet and letter in the P5-7’s bags which describe the survey and allow the choice of whether to take part or not.
A week last Friday the P7s and a bonus P5 represented the school and the Eels in the Classroom Project at the Johnstonebridge Community Centre, after school. One of the P7s made a speech about her experience which I have shared below, and which contains an important message. Hannah is dressed as Roald Dahl ‘s Matilda for good measure!
All present P4-7 pupils took part in the annual Small Schools Sportshall Athletics Qualifying Event at Moffat Academy this morning. All participants did their best in the indoor track and field events competing against the the other small schools in Annandale and Eskdale, well done.
Today, members of P7, P6 and some P5 went to Violetbank in Annan to take part in the Tag Rugby Fesitval. Despite a wet start, the rain stopped and the sun even came out. We played four games, the first three back to back and then got our best result in the last game when we drew 3-3 with Beattock. Well done to all who took part and thanks to Active Schools and Annan Rugby for a fun morning.

We entered a girls and a boys team into the Road Relay event last week at the Everholm in Annan. Well done to the boys who came 14th overall and also to the girls team below, who came 9th overall and 3rd in the small schools.
