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.

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.

Olympian visit

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.

P2,3,3/4 and 4 topic assembly

P2,3,3/4 and 4 took us on a trip around the world during Mondays assembly. They have been learning about different countries and enjoyed showing off their learning. First up was P2 who were talking about India, after a long haul flight it was P3 who were talking about New Zealand. The school then hopped back on the plane to Italy with P3/4 before finally arriving in the safari of Kenya with P4.

During Assembly P4 performed a Haka which is a traditional Maori war dance from New Zealand.

Red nose day

On Friday the 15th of March Calside primary had a dress in something red day for Children In Need. We raised over £1000 and are still receiving donations.

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.

Remembering Rabbie

On the 25th of January we celebrated Burns Day with a traditional Burns lunch. Primary 6 did the speeches. The boys did a traditional toast to the lassies and the lassies repdonded back. Maddison did the Selkirk Grace and Mr McIlorum piped in the haggis.
