iCoffee Afternoon 2

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.

ASC Primary Schools Speech Competition

Here are some pictures from the Speech Competition last week.

Amy and Ellie both spoke extremely well and were a credit to themselves and Brydekirk Primary.

Congratulations to Amy who got a cup for third place and solid proof that she should have every confidence in her ability. This is key when moving to Secondary school. Ellie was unlucky not to place, as she delivered her speech impeccably, although being in P5, she may well get another shot or two in this competition.

Open Meeting and Maths Makes Sense evening for parents

Just a post to say thanks to the parents, prospective parents and members of our community who turned out in response to the Cluster Working Review, to support and discuss the best way forward for Brydekirk Primary.

Special thanks to Mr Simpson who presented the current state of affairs to all, and also to Mr McBain Chair of the Parent Council and Councillors Carruthers for their valued input.

This evening was initially planned to share our new approach to teaching Mathematics in our school: Maths Makes Sense. We did manage to cover a bit of this although it made for a long evening, and wasn’t a particularly easy sell after an hour and a half discussing the serious topic of the Cluster Working Review. Here’s a video explaining a bit more and others can be found here.
