Spain v Slovenia

On Tuesday we had the opportunity to go and watch the Under 20 world hockey championships at the Dumfries Ice Bowl. The game was between Spain and Slovenia. We were supporting Spain who won. After a very exciting game which ended 3-3 the game went to a penalty shootout which Spain won 1-0. Lucas Gibson in P2 got to present the man of the match award. Despite being very confused about the rules the children had a great time and many said they would go again. So for any parents interested the under 20 championships will be on for the remainder of the week and also look out for the local team Solway Sharks who play at the Ice Bowl.

On Monday we had a guest at our assembly. A local Olympian Courtney Scriven came in to talk about her sport of Boccia. She has represented the region at the special olympics where she has won medals. The school had a chance to ask questions and see her equipment that she uses.

Issues with online social media

We are aware that the latest negative internet trend is now being discussed by pupils in the school and indeed some of our children have unfortunately experienced this. I understand this has caused a great deal of upset for both children and parents.

PC Irvine was in school on 5th February to discuss online bullying and internet safety with children and to remind them of the ages which they should be to access these. The National Online Safety website has a series of parental guides on many of the social media platforms and you may find this useful. Their guide to the current MOMO trend is shown below.

Whilst we do everything in school to minimise the effects of these sites and trends, I would ask that you are vigilant when your children are online to ensure they are not subject to viewing such social media trends.

Cool Curling

On Friday the 1st of February, P7 attended Cool Curling at the Ice Bowl. We had a go at curling and practiced some of the skills needed. We also got to play lots of cool games and had a go at some team building exercises.
