Pupils and staff at Calderwood Lodge were recently paid a visit by a very special person. As part of the transition to our new school, pupils will be given the chance throughout the year to visit the site and see how the building work is coming along. Ivor Goodsite attended an assembly to talk to pupils about staying safe on construction sites in preparation for some of these visits.

East Renfrewshire Diversity Day

Diversity Day As part of East Renfrewshire Diversity Day, our Primary 6 class were among 600 Pupils to attend an event held at Barrhead Foundry. The day gave the children the chance to see an exhibition of different religions, participate in a diversity themed art competition and develop their team-building skills through a number of sporting and dance activities. Four of our Primary 7 pupils (pictured above) supported former Calderwood Lodge teacher Margalit Borowski in educating pupils about Judaism.

New Kodesh Blog

To support pupils across the school in their Kodesh understanding and development, Mrs Rosenberg has started a Kodesh blog, similar to those used for the class blogs. She will upload the weekly parasha to this, and ask useful questions and add points for discussion to support conversations around this area at home. You can visit the blog by clicking here.

In term 3 children in P6 will take part in Bikeability sessions. The Bikeability programme is designed to give young people the skills and confidence to cycle, especially on roads. The programme also aims to sustain participation in cycling activity in Scotland.

This year Bikeability will take place on the following dates. Please ensure your child has their bike in school for each session.

We are unable to store bikes in between sessions on the school premises. In previous years bikes have been stored in between sessions in our nursery hall, however this space is now a shared space used by Primary 1 and nursery children. Please speak to a member of office staff should you have any queries about this.

If any parent wishes to volunteer to support a Bikeability session please contact Miss Dunn.

Muddy Mile

A group of pupils, parents and staff participated in the Muddy Mile run on Sunday 20th March.  This event was inspired by our running club and Mr Neillie, the parent who runs this afterschool activity.  The Muddy Mile was great fun.  We had a few lost shoes in the mud pits but the sun was shining and everyone was smiling at the finish line.  We hope to make this an annual event, so we will send out more information early next year to allow more parents and pupils to join us.
