Bring 5 for Nepal

Having seen the recent news reports, we would like to raise money for the Nepal Earthquake Appeal by asking pupils to bring any 5 coins on Friday 8 May. Pupils should wear their Carolside uniforms on their top halves as normal but can wear something blue elsewhere – perhaps jeans, leggings, joggers, socks, trainers, ribbons or hairbands. This is to symbolise the colours of the Nepalese flag. We hope that everyone will support this worthwhile cause.

In January the Equality Committee planned and organised the school’s involvement in the Show Racism the Red Card competition. This involved them presenting to classes at assembly and selecting entries to be submitted to the competition. The Show Racism the Red Card competition is open to all schools in Scotland.

Carolside Primary was delighted to have two pupils selected as overall finalists for this year’s Show Racism the Red Card creative competition. Niamh Harley was an overall finalist for the Primary 5 – 7 category and Jessica Rodgers was an overall finalist for the Primary 3 – 4 category. Both girls attended an award ceremony at Hampden Park on Thursday 19th March. They were both awarded with Highly Commended and were presented with certificates and prizes. Well done to both girls, what a fantastic achievement! The girl’s entries can be seen in the photos below:

Thank you to all pupils, staff and parents who helped to make World Book Day a great success.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and took part in a variety of activities such as art work, author study, writing their own stories and being a reading buddy.  Every child in the school took part in the Readathon and as a school, we read 1969 books!  Thank you to all those who donated.  We raised £655.16 and classes will be given their total in due course to spend on books from their wish list.
