P5-7 Drug Awareness

This afternoon, P.C. Wilson visited P5-7 to tell them more about legal and illegal drugs. She had some replica illegal drugs to show the pupils in an afternoon which was based on awareness raising, ensuring that pupils know who to speak to if they have any questions and most importantly, how to keep themselves safe. P.C. Wilson emphasized the dangers and knock-on effects of becoming involved in drugs. Education is key in this area as well all work together to help our pupils become responsible, happy citizens. The class listened keenly, asking the questions they had prepared. I know they learnt a great deal from this session.

K’Nex Challenge Team in Dumfries

Well done to the Confident Individuals of Luke and Joshua who travelled to Dumfries on Friday to compete in the regional heat of Glasgow Science Festival’s K’Nex Challenge.

The boys were set the task of designing a moving wind turbine using the K’nex, which they built using teamwork and logic. The boys were fabulous representatives of the school and received a certificate each as a memento of their involvement. Thank you Joshua and Luke – we’re very proud of you.

Thanks also to Luke’s dad for providing their transport to and from Dumfries.
