We have had an action-packed week of healthy activities in school. Many thanks to all who came in and shared their expertise and enthusiasm with our school community: Terry from Solway Spartans Boxing; Mark from Annan Tennis Club; Nicole from Ankle Biters; Gary from Annan Rugby Club; Yvonne McGregor from the Health Improvement Team; Jacqueline Bell, Dental Health Office; Edith from Tesco; Katie Robinson, i-bike officer; Zoe from Compass; Maureen Smith’s dancing club; Andy and Eric from Annan Athletic; Alistair from Borders Shotokan karate club; Liam from Little Tigers Taekwando; our own Mrs Menzies teaching Zumba; P5/6 and P7 and their teachers Mr Stevenson and Miss Dennis. Thanks also to Aldi for donating bottles of water. The week was a great success and we hope to see progression for some of our children in to a new sport or club and in some of the healthy choices that they make.
As you can see we had a great week:
General Data Protection Regulation comes into force today (25 May 2018). Hecklegirth Primary will comply with the six data protection principles to ensure the protection of your personal data.
Well done everyone. I counted over 50 bikes and scooters in our playground today. Keep it up for the rest of the week.
Well done to Rhys O’Hara. The names of the school footballers went into a hat and Rhys’ name was drawn out to win free tickets for the Scotland V Wales U18 International Football Match at Palmerston Park on Thursday 19th April. Enjoy the game with your Dad Rhys!
Well done to our lacrosse team who took part in a competition at Dumfries College on Monday. The team played well and enjoyed the experience. Mrs Foster will continue the club after the holidays in preparation for the next tournament in the 4th term.
Well done to Ellie Smith who won the P7 girls regional badminton competition. She played 8 matches, finally winning in the final and will now represent the school at a national competition in Perth during May. Super effort, well done Ellie!
