Please see below a gallery of activities the children have been taking part in during their time in the hub. Thank you to all staff who continue to support the children in the hub and provide such imaginative and creative ideas. The children really enjoy using the Kapla bricks and created their own city this week. The treasure maps and ships in bottles were inspired be sea shanties Mrs Wixon shared with the children this week. We can’t wait to see how the movie trailers turn out that the children have been working on with Mrs Lumsden.
Lots of deserving pupils were again awarded their certificates and prizes for their hard work, effort and positive attitude to their learning. Our photos show several successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.
Also pictured are all our young people who took part in the recent schools gymnastics competition.
Today in awards, we had many successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens who were awarded with their certificates. We also had a visit from Mr and Mrs Wilbur from Dalbeattie Chamber of Trade who came to receive a cheque for £57 from the Rotakids Club for the Christmas lights appeal. The Rotakids Club, had, under the guidance of Mr and Mrs Cathro, raised the money with ‘Guess the Sweets in the Jar’ before the Christmas holidays. Rotakids is a junior Rotary Club which aims to undertake good work for the community, school and the wider global environment. Certificates were also awarded for good performance in Accelerated Reader quizzes. Also at the assembly, were senior High School pupils who informed us about the new recycling bins in the dinner hall so that waste can be better segregated.
Today we presented prizes to the children who had won the Accelerated Reader raffle prizes (tickets awarded to pupils scoring full marks in book quizzes) and to the children who received first, second or third places in the JRSO competition to design a poster about being seen on dark morning and after school times. Also drawn were the winners of the P1/2 Christmas Quiz as part of the class enterprise. The winners were Lucy and Finlay.
