We will go ahead with potted sports in the playground this morning but it is unlikely that the races in the afternoon will go ahead as the forecast is bad for this afternoon. We will tweet updates through the day.

Christmas Toy Appeal

Christmas Toy Appeal

Amey is running a toy recycling appeal with a number of Scottish Primary Schools, to support charities providing toys for disadvantaged children who might otherwise receive no presents this Christmas. Please consider donating your old toys, books, board games and comics. This will make room for this year’s presents. Give an old toy a new home. In 2015 we filled 3 bin bags full of toys, let’s see if we can beat that this year! Please make sure that all toys donated are in good working order. Thank you for your support.

Scottish Poppy Appeal

Poppies from The Scottish Poppy Appeal will be on sale in the school as from 1st November 2017.  If you wish your child to buy one, please send your child in to school with a donation. In addition to this, P5-P7 children have been making poppy brooches at their jewellery club.  Those brooches are on sale for £1.50 each and all the proceeds will be given to Poppy Scotland.

Wear Red Day

We have just received information about this year’s Show Racism the Red Card’s ‘Wear Red Day’ which takes place on Friday 6th October. This is a great chance for young people to get involved in anti-racism education, simply by wearing red!  As a Rights Respecting School, we are very happy to have the opportunity to become involved in initiatives which promote equality and diversity therefore we would like to take part in Wear Red Day 2017.

We would like all our pupils and staff to wear any red item of clothing on Friday the 6th of October. This could range from a red t-shirt to red socks or any other red accessory.

Our participation in this event is to promote the anti-racism message therefore pupils are not required to bring a donation on this occasion.

Parental Involvement Survey

Through this short survey Scottish Government would like you to help them find out what matters to parents about their school and their child’s education, focusing on what needs to be done to make the improvements we all want to see.

The survey will close on October 16th and will inform the annual report for the National Improvement Framework parental involvement driver.
