Today our Primary 1-4 learners were visited by Allan’s Road Safety Magic Show, where they learned about road safety and enjoyed some amazing magic tricks! Learners participated in discussions about appropriate clothing to ensure they are seen and how to cross the road safely.
Ask your young people the magic words:
(STOP – LOOK – LISTEN – THINK)!
This is also a great opportunity to remind all of our learners to wear their Hi-Vis vests.

A huge well done to all our finalists in this year’s Scots’ Poetry Competition.
As always the standard was very very high. Deciding on three finalists for each year group is very difficult. We are extremely grateful to our external judges, Mr Urqhurt, Mrs McGilp and Mrs McCutcheon, who had the very challenging task of judging our competitors this morning – not a job we envy!
Huge thanks to Lexi and Ben from P7 who compered the event and to Lily, Caitie, Lucy and Caitlin who entertained us with their amazing highland dancing.

Our Primary 1 learners are developing into confident individuals and some of them are confident at coming into school on their own.
Our drop off arrangements are flexible and are led by the readiness of the children. Some of our children come into school on their own and organise themselves for learning in the classroom.
The classrooms for P1 learners are open from 8.50am and P1s can enter at this time. They don’t need an adult to bring them in – if your child is confident enough to come in on their own they are welcome to do so.
Please remember that our playground is staffed from 8.45am.
