Head Teacher’s Awards 17.1.20

Today, several pupils were awarded with much deserved certificates for being successful learners and effective contributors, with many good role models showing good focus, concentration and excellent attitude to their learning and the school community. Also presented were two special certificates, chosen by Mrs Gray for skills in PE. The whole of Primary 7 were awarded for their resilience and determination during cross country in poor weather conditions. Excellent!


Head Teacher’s Awards

Today, on the last day of term we were pleased to present Head Teacher’s Awards to more successful role models and successful learners. Well done all! Two children, Sofia and Leah were also recognised for their effort in fundraising for our sponsored walk. The school has now raised over £2400 which is a super amount and a significant amount of this was raised by these two girls.  However, our thanks go to all our young people  who worked so hard to help raise this excellent amount, which will help with future school trips and other resources. Many children were also recognised for their participation in a  recent Sumdog competition.

Harvest Assembly and House Captains

Today we held our harvest Assembly, albeit made shorter by an unplanned fire evacuation! We were delighted to welcome Reverend Fiona Wilson to our service. The children had brought in lots of donations for the foodbank, for which the local church will be taking away items for us. Mrs Duncan showed us some pictures from our very own harvest in school: ‘soup at snack time’ photos showed our soup made by the eco group ad Mrs Howie with Mrs Houston in the Hospitality Department, made from our own home grown vegetables. Out eco committee and school council also received their badges. Three primary 7 children were awarded with their Head Teacher’s Award certificates (they will not be here on Friday due to Operation Safety) and our Houses Captains were also announced.
