The P7s have been working hard over the last few Thursdays and Fridays trying to help at the Brydekirk Toddler Group on Friday mornings. So far they have surveyed the Parents and Toddlers to see what they would like and have started to bake. With an initial loan (which they have now payed back) they bought some ingredients for short bread and have had two goes at making it. The girls hope to continue to help out.
This Monday at 13.30 until 14.30 we are holding our second iCoffee Afternoon for any members of the community interested in getting help or learning more about technology. The focus will be an introduction to the internet and also email. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday afternoon.
The P7 started to plan the Halloween disco in early October. My name is Duncan from Brydekirk Primary, I am a P7 and I will be writing about the Halloween disco the P7 made. It was very hard to plan the disco as we had to plan when it was going to be what time it was who was coming when it ended etc. We did a who can make the best pumpkin competition it was a huge success. I was the DJ. Everyone enjoyed it. The whole thing was a success and we tidied up afterwords.
The P7 girls had the idea and the determination to organise a charity event last term. They raised over £200 pounds, well done girls, you made a good job of your event and your efforts will help someone in need.
On the last day of term, the P7s organised a disco. The whole school and P7s from other schools were invited and we had a great night. The disco was organised to raise funds for the P7s residential trip and in the end they nearly raised £175. On behalf of the P7s and all of those that attended, we’d like to thank everyone that donated to the tuck shop and raffle prizes, you were very generous. Also thanks to the members of the PFA who helped on the night – Mrs Clark and Mrs Alexander on the tuck shop, Mrs McBain on the door, Mrs Hunter on the raffle and Mrs Henderson on the raffle and making an excellent job of sorting out the money. Mrs Alexander also deserves another mention as she was very generous with donations to the tuck shop, thanks again.
Thanks also to Mrs Turnbull for helping run and support the night and well done to all of those who attended and had fun.
Hope everyone has a nice Easter break.
Our School Disco
On the 30th of March 2012 Brydekirk Primary had a disco. It was to raise money so we could buy instruments. The disco was up in the hall. We did a huge plan on all the stuff we needed do, get or make like: organisation, communication, refreshments, equipment and information. We decided to have our disco at 7:30-9:30. After we planned the disco we got ready for it so we designed posters, flyers, decorations and entry fees. We moved the stuff up to the hall and then we got lights, stamps, music and food. Everyone was SUPER exited. We got letters so our parents could give us permission to go to the disco. The disco was very fun and the theme was school of rock. Lots of other schools came. There was a raffle and you won Easter eggs because it was the Easter holidays. you could buy food and drink. I was really tired afterwards.
