Achievers in St Machan’s

Lots of achievements were recognised today at our assembly including the P7 girls for their participation in the St Ninian’s Dance Festival, P1 winners of the bulb growing competition, Achievers of the Month and the P7s who came 3rd in the Kirkintilloch Rotary Quiz.  Well done to all!

P7 Dance Festival

Well done to our fabulous P7 girls who performed wonderfully at the St Ninian’s dance festival on Tuesday 22nd February.  The girls practised hard with help from their talented dance leaders from St Ninian’s and came up with an original routine which went down a storm on the night.  Thanks also to Niamh’s sister who came along and did hair and makeup for the girls.  Great show!

Loving Maths through Music!

The children are enjoying the ‘Loving Maths Through Music’ project which every class in the school are taking part in.  The project aims at giving children confidence with their number work by combining it with musical games and rhymes.  Miss Karen Geoghan from the National Youth Choir of Scotland is working alongside class teachers using the Kodaly method of teaching music to model music lessons and we hope the benefits will be raised attainment in both maths and music work.
