 Carlibar will be taking part in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch again this year.

 The Birdwatch takes just one hour, and can be carried out at any point between 5 January and 13 February 2015 – that’s the entire first half of the spring term. Every school or group that submits their results before the 20 February will be sent a certificate and free personalised minibeast poster as a thank you for taking part.

By taking part we will be providing  information  on how well some of our most familiar birds are faring, as well as helping to encourage more birds into the school grounds.

You can join in at home.  Visit for more information. 

 All you need to do is spend an hour of your choice counting the birds in your garden over the weekend of the 24th to 25th of January. It’s that simple!

In the case of an emergency closure or severe weather conditions, the school may not open or may have to close early on advice from East Renfrewshire Council. It is important that parents check up to date closure information. The school website will be updated as soon as we have confirmed that the school can not open in the morning or that we need to start a planned early closure during the school day.

All parents should ensure that the school has the most recent mobile telephone numbers. In the event of an emergency closure, text message alerts will be sent from the school office as soon as staff are able to access the building. Please do not reply to these alert messages.

For the most up to date information follow the Twitter Link on the East Renfrewshire Council webpage.
