Library launch



Over the past two years at Calside primary school the pupil council and Miss Brown have been working extremely hard to upgrade our old, dull and boring library into a new colourful, exciting and amazing place. The pupil council held a competition to see who would design our new library. They picked 3 winners and merged them all together; the winners were Kirstin Murray P7, Jemma Geddes P5, and Ethan Weir P3. Kirstin thought of a woodland theme, Jemma thought of a Charlie and the chocolate factory theme and Ethan thought of a space theme. Pupil council have ordered all the books into alphabetical order and they hope to keep it that way. The process was, first the children choose a new dark blue carpet for the space area, a turquoise colour for the woodland area and also purple carpet for the chocolate factory area. Then Mrs Geddes kindly helped out to paint the walls to match the theme, after that Miss Brown ordered book shelfs and other equipment for the library. Mr Jones made an excellent job building a space station for us and we are very grateful for all his hard work. The people in prison also made all the wooden ends for our library. Finally everything was organised and put into position for the grand opening.

During launch week we have lots of competitions and fun activities to do. Also parents and authors are coming in to read stories to us. On Monday we all got to dress up as our favourite book character. We would all like to say a massive thankyou to Miss Brown for all her hard work in giving us a library we are all looking forward to using for years to come.

Awesome Art

On Thursday the house captains designed boards for the inter-house art. The theme was Disney with friendship. The boards were Lion King by P4, Jungle book P4/5 , Finding Nemo P5 and Toy Story P6. We used art supplies that were donated as we were learning to up cycle old unwanted belongings.

Super Summer BBQ

On Saturday at Calside Primary School P7 hosted their own Summer BBQ with the help of the teachers. We organised lots of stalls and activities for people to do. We had face painting, sweet pong, sponge throwing, beat the goalie, tombola, guess the teddies birthday, guess where the teddy went on holiday, guess how many sweeties in the jar, cake stall and QOS raffle. We all had a great day and we raised lots of money which will go towards our end of year trip. Thanks to all who donated prizes or cakes. Also a massive thanks to all the teachers, staff and parents who gave up their time to help us.
