Celebrating Equality and Diversity

Following on from our successful ‘Dress to Express’ Day, we are continuing to learn more about equality and diversity as part of  February’s Diversity Awareness Month.

In class, your children will learn more about these terms through a variety of activities and discussions.

To help your children accept themselves and others as they are,  this picture book about diversity will help them to respect all the differences that make us unique.

Please enjoy reading it together.

 

Dress to Express

 

Friday is Dress to Express Day at Drongan Primary School. As you may know, this week we are supporting and raising awareness of Children’s Mental Health.  Supported by Place2Be the theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is ‘My Voice Matters’.

Pupils and staff are asked to help raise awareness on Friday, 2nd February by dressing to express.  You may choose to dress in your favourite colour.  You might choose a colour which expresses how you’re feeling or wear your hair in a certain way.  Either way, Friday is Dress to Express Day and your chance to express yourself!

As you know, it has never been more important to support our pupils’ mental health and wellbeing. We all play an important role. If you would like to check out Place2Be’s free resources, please visit their website.

Show Week!!!

What a week it has been at Drongan Primary School.  Both the P1 – 3 Nativity and the P4 – 7 Show were absolutely fantastic and once again showcased the wonderful talent that we have among the children here in Drongan.  It is a pleasure and a privilege to work with the children every day to provide them with the opportunity to demonstrate their talents, and the Thursday evening performance was certainly a fitting finale to show week.

A huge well done to all of the children and a massive thanks to the staff for the work that has gone into the preparations for the performances.

Finally, a big thank you to you the parents, carers and members of the community for your continued support.  It is an honour not only to work in a school with great pupils and staff, but also to serve what is such a strong and supportive community here in Drongan.

There are two Sway presentations below with links to photographs of the cast list and choruses for the shows.  Some children are off today but we will take their photo when they return and add to the Sway presentation.

All the Fun of the Fayre

 

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Christmas Fayre on Tuesday 5th December.  With the support and generosity of you and the community we raised over £2400 for the school fund on the night. This total will increase with he work that is going on in the school. It is always a pleasure to see the school so busy and was also lovely to see so many former pupils who came along to support the event.

Thank you to Mr McFadzean and Mrs Tait for all the hard work involved in making this event such a success.
