Perfect Parental Afternoon

 

On Wednesday the 11th of September parents came in for a parental afternoon. Parents came in to our school to see how we are getting on with our work during school time. The reason the parents were invited into school for this event was to see how they could help with their child’s literacy, numeracy and our e-passports. Everybody had lots of fun on this day here are some photos.

Guid Nychburris Football

It’s been a busy week at Calside with teams taking part in the annual Guid Nychburris football tournament. All teams played well and worked hard. They were excellent representatives for the school showing great teamwork and sportsmanship.

P5

Although the results didn’t go their way, the boys played really well: they never stopped running and were always encouraging each other. It was a really encouraging sign for their future football tournaments at Calside. Well done!

P6

A massive thank you to Mark Kerr who took the boys along to the tournament, unfortunately they missed out on the semi finals on goal difference. Again these boys showed great sportsmanship, team work and desire. Well done!

P7

The P7 boys along with two P6 boys took part in the tournament. Scott Hodgins kindly offered to take the boys along so again a massive thank you goes to him too. The boys again showed excellent teamwork, sportsmanship and desire. They won the tournament on penalties and what a great way for the P7 boys to end their time at Calside.

Girls

We had a fantastic uptake in the number of girls who wanted to take part this year and as a result we were able to enter two teams. Thanks goes to the hard work of Suzanne and Rachael who have coached the girls throughout the year. Both teams did really well with one just missing out on the semi finals. Well done girls!

Hockey

On Thursday the 6th of June Calside took part in a hockey tournament at the King George Arena. We competed against teams from Cargenbridge, Caerlaverock and Brownhall. The team showed a great attitude and worked well together. One team finished 2nd and the other finished 4th. Well done to all who took part.

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.
