Whole school summer trip

As you are all aware this years whole school trip will be to Blair Drummond Safari Park

The cost of this trip per pupil is £15.00 (includes entry and transport)

With only 3 weeks to go till the day of our trip we still have a number of pupils who havent paid for this trip.

We also have a number of pupils who have still to return there permission slip for the trip – despite duplicate forms being issued by the office.

If we do not receive payment (via Parentpay or Paypoint) or the childs permission slip returned to school NO LATER THAN 31st May we will assume that you do not wish your child to attend the trip and they will not be allowed to attend the trip on the day.

If children do not attend the trip they should not attend school that day as there will be no school staff present on this day.

If you require another permission letter, Parentpay letter or Paypoint barcoded letter please contact the school office on 01563 525897.

As we near the end of our school year, we want to go out with a bang! Our Friends and Parent Council have organised a fundraising event to help raise some funds for our children in Mount Carmel. This will be in the form of a House hamper raffle.

We will be holding another Dress Down Day on Friday 31st May and are asking that each child (if they can) bring in an item of their house colour for the raffle. For example if your child was in the red house (fire), they could bring in a tin of ready salted Pringles.  If you could support us with this we would very much appreciate it. The tickets for the raffle will then be sold for £1 and we will have 4 winners, a winner for each of our houses.

Good Luck everyone!!

Our Sports Day this year will be held on Thursday 6th June.

We are very excited to be holding our Sports Day on Thursday 6th June and are keeping our fingers crossed for good weather! Parents/carers are invited to come along on the day through the main car park gates and making their way through the upper playground to the grass area at the rear of the school.

Signs will be in place to follow.

We are encouraging the children to wear House colours where possible. If your child does not know what House they are in, please contact the school office.

Children should bring with them comfortable clothes as they will take part in different activities throughout the day. They should also bring sun cream, a hat, sunglasses and plenty of water.  

Can we ask that immediately after your child’s races that you exit the school grounds to make way for the next group of Parents/Carers to attend and so on. Thank you.

Here is the running list for the races for each class:

  • Primary 1     9.10am-9.40am
  • Primary 2      9.40am-10.10am

Primary 4 – 7 children have been busy rehearsing and getting every thing ready for the big show. The children have been given a letter home today with information regarding costumes. We are asking for your help with providing your son/daughter with what they need; however, if for any reason this is causing issues or you require support for this then please do not hesitate to get in contact with the school office and we will do everything we can to ensure that the children have everything they need to perform.

As always, the staff at Mount carmel would like to thank our parents for their ongoing support. Without it, we would be unable to put on these awesome shows.

Thank you!

We have a beautiful May altar in our classroom and have been reflecting on the life of Our Lady as well as praying the rosary to help us deepen  our appreciation of Mary and learn how she can help us to become missionaries of God’s love too.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel pray for us.

Please note:

This week, Matilda rehearsals will take place after school on Wednesday instead of tomorrow. We appreciate this may clash with some pupils who attend the after school Multi-sports club, however, in this instance, the show takes priority and those pupils should attend rehearsals this week rather than sports club.

Only those pupils who have already been called for rehearsals this week  should attend. 

Thank you and apologies for any inconvenience.

May is the Month of Mary

May is a month traditionally dedicated to Our Lady and the Rosary. Mary, the mother of God, was a loving mother and a model for us all.

During this month, all our classes are making a special effort to pray the Rosary to help us to reflect on the life of Mary and Jesus.

As the Mount Carmel Missio Champions, Primary 4 put together some ideas to help us all learn about Mary and to pray the rosary.  We distributed these to all classes.

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

Primary 4 and 5 – Wednesday

On Wednesday, our Primary 4 and Primary 5 classes will be taking part in outdoor activities to celebrate Natural Scotland week. We were hoping to go to the Dean Park; however, due to the Mayfest the park will be closed. The classes are very excited to be den building, making smores and roasted marshmallows in the morning and then we can continue with our rehearsals for MATILDA in the afternoon.

Please ensure that the children have suitable outdoor clothing on (jogging bottoms or leggings) with school uniform on top. They should also have suitable outdoor shoes on as we will be on the grass.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Mrs McCreadie and Mrs MacKinnon
