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.

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.
