Library launch

LOVELY 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.

Getting Fit

On Monday at assembly the CHAT group showed us some activities to get us fit. We went back to class and took part with the CHAT representative from each class leading. We all had a great time although we were out of breath towards the end.

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.

New House Captains

On Wednesday we performed our speeches for house captains. Everyone was really nervous but gave great speeches. These are the winners for each of the house.

Easter Fun

This week the pupil council have organised different activities as part of our Easter fun. We had an obstacle course where the fastest person won, we had a design your own Easter egg, lots of different games and best of all an Easter egg hunt where we had to find a delicious chocolate egg that was kindly donated by the parent council.

Massive thanks to the awesome pupil council and Miss Brown for organising excellent fun activities for the whole School.

Check out some of the fun pictures below.

Calside General Elections 2019

 

And the winner is……

on Wednesday the 23rd of January P5/6/7 held an election to see who would be the winning party. 13 parties took part and had the chance to deliver their speeches on what their party promises were. Other parties were then allowed to challenge their promises by asking questions.

After the speeches all the children had the chance to vote for their favourite party using our ballot papers. We had to make sure we put a cross in the box.

 

After the votes were counted we found out who was the winning party and the winners were the D.I.S.C.O party.  They got to make a winning speech to remind the pupils of their promises. Party leader  Skye said ‘she didn’t expect this and that the party will prove they were the correct choice’ after winning the vote.
