Yesterday we had the P7 Leavers’ Ceremony at 2pm. We had songs from everyone and Mrs Reid, Mr Archibald, Miss Primrose and many Pupils spoke. Prizes were awarded and then right at the end we had a last song to send off the P7s with Rio taking a starring role playing guitar – take a bow Rio.
We did our best to video the proceedings but as it was outside and the wind was blowing, the results aren’t what we hoped but we did our best in the circumstances:
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.
School is closed again today. I hope everyone is safe in this cold weather.
Things to do other than destroy your brains with devices or TV:
Go out and play in the snow, this may be the most you’ll see in your childhood (make sure you tell whoever is looking after you and are prepared for the weather)
Write about your day off (any P7s who have written a blog post, and have their password, should write it up on this blog and I’ll post it)
Do some iXL maths (see homework link at the side)
Do some Spelling City (as above)
