The whole school is having a Christmas/Winter jumper day on Wednesday 11th December. Primary 6 will be “carol singing” with the ECC in Catrine Square and it’s also our Festive lunch day.
P5/6 have finished reading the novel Matilda. The class will now watch the movie and complete various comparison activities linked to the book. Matilda has a PG rating. If you DO NOT consent to your child watching Matilda please contact the school office by Wednesday 11th December.
Our Christmas Fayre last night was a great success. Our total profit raised was £762.50!! This was due to the continued support of parents/carers/family friends and the local community. Thank you!! Have a look ….
Catrine Parent Council play a crucial part in our school life and are vital to school successes. They also raised £145.80 for their funds.
With Christmas fast approaching, we are all aware of the financial effects of the holiday season on the lives of families in our area. Some families may feel under pressure to show their appreciation to staff in the school and ECC by buying gifts and presents.
Last year the BBC ran a feature about this with the simple message that thank you is enough. We want to share this message with you this year to reassure any parents/carers that are worried about affording a gift for a teacher/staff member in the run up to the Christmas break.
So, just a reminder that a thank you, a card, a handmade token of appreciation and the thought behind these small gestures, is more than enough for us.
Wishing you all the best this festive season,
Primary 5/6 will be visiting the institute on Friday 6th December where they will be making soup. If possible could you please provide your child with a suitable container to bring their soup home in.
Many thanks, Mrs Schendel

School Value focus – Determination
Every month in our Home Circles at Catrine Primary School, and in the Welcome Groups at Catrine ECC, we will be focussing on one of our Catrine Values to ensure that our pupils have a solid understanding of them.
Our Values are – Ambition, Determination, Fairness, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork.
We would appreciate your views on what Determination means to you and your family.
Responses will be collated and displayed around our school and ECC to show a shared understanding of our Catrine Values from all stakeholders – pupils, parents and staff.
