There has been lots of activity on our twitter page this week. Click the link below to catch up on all the fun at Busby Primary!
Please follow us and keep up to date with what is happening during the school day.
All parents are invited to our “Meet the Staff” evening on Wednesday 6th August, at 6.30pm when Mr Weir will give a short presentation on our school targets for this year. Following this there will be a choice of two sessions, 7.00-7.30pm and 7.30-8.00pm in your child’s classroom.
This will be an opportunity to informally meet with your child’s class teacher to find out about class routines and the exciting learning experiences that are planned. This event is aimed at parents only so we would ask that children remain at home on this occasion.
There will be a Leadership Assembly on Friday 1st September at 1.45pm at Busby Parish Church. Parents of pupils receiving Leadership awards will be invited in due course.
At Busby, we are hoping to install a vertical garden at the rear of the school. We have been in discussions with international environmental artist, Marc Granen and a consultancy called Nature Harmonics to try and bring this exciting project to life. In order to raise the necessary funds, we have managed to secure a place in the latest Tesco Bags of Help vote.
If you are shopping in one of these stores, please cast your vote for Busby!

Our French Family fun evening was a great success. Families chose two from a choice of six French themed activities. Miss Wight led the ‘French Bake Off’ as pupils and parents tried to make the perfect crepe. Mrs Oswald asked questions on French culture in the quiz and Miss Woods called out the numbers in the Lotto game – in French of course! Mr Weir was in charge of ‘Le Grand Design’ as families attempted to build the Eiffel Tower from spaghetti and marshmallows. Miss Hunter invited families to ‘Show Me the Monet’ as they attempted to recreate the famous ‘Water Lily Pond’ painting and Mrs Robinson refereed games of Petanque in the main hall.
With prizes on offer for all activities, the competitive sides of our parents and pupils were on full display! It was a fun evening and we hope all families who attended had a great time.
