Walk to School Week!

Walk to School Week – W/B 23rd October 2017

Dear Parents/Carer,

The Braveheart Walking Bus will be running every day during Walk to School Week! We hope that this will be another successful week of walking. Remember, even if you do not live in the village you can be dropped off at the Eaglesham shops at 8.30am in the morning. If you would like to volunteer to help with a Walking Bus during this week, please contact Mrs Johnston-Smith. A little help really does go a long way in supporting active and safe travel to school. 

The Braveheart route is led by teachers who provide high visibility waistcoats for the children to wear ensuring a safe journey to school. The Walking Bus is a great way for children to exercise whilst socialising with their peers.  It encourages all to take an active approach in their own health and well-being.  Please note that the bus will wait at each stop for a maximum of two minutes. It is parents’ responsibility to escort their children to the bus stops.  Please do not leave a child at a stop if the bus has not arrived.  As the bus is run and manned by Eaglesham volunteers, it is classed as ‘informal’.  This means that all children attending the bus remain the responsibility of their parents until they arrive in the school playground.

If your child would like to join a Walking Bus, simply turn up on the day at one of the stops that are detailed below. I look forward to seeing you there!

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Johnston-Smith

Principal Teacher

Wheelbarrow Weekend 2017

Wheelbarrow Weekend Voucher

Wheelbarrow Weekend is almost upon us!

In a change to previous years, we’d like to extend the offer of free entry to the families of pupils at all the local East Renfrewshire schools and nurseries, as well as 20% off food and drink in the Greenbank tearoom. 

If anyone has any issues printing them, please let us know and we can set up a guest list for those unable to print their own vouchers. Parents can contact us directly at greenbankgarden@nts.org.uk to let us know if they’d like to attend.

 We hope to see as many of you as possible over the weekend and are very excited to check out this year’s entries!

Fairtrade Fortnight!

Eaglesham Primary School (in association with Rainbow Turtle)

will be running a Fairtrade Shop from 1st to 3rd March 2017. 

The shop will be selling pocket money items, with most items being priced

at £1.00. If pupils would like to buy something from our shop,

they should bring money with them on one (or all!) of those days.

Tesco – Groundwork Funding

Tesco teamed up with Greenspace Scotland and Groundworks to launch its Bags of Help initiative. The scheme sees three community groups and projects in each of around 200 Tesco regions awarded grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. Eaglesham Primary School has been selected with their bid to build a plastic bottle greenhouse. The public will now vote in store from 1 to 31 December on who should receive the £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards. Please vote for us!

WEEE

Following on from last year’s successful ‘Towards a litter-free East Renfrewshire’ campaign, the Environmental Department is running a new initiative which raises awareness of the impact of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) on the environment and will also include an amnesty for small appliances that are broken or no longer in use, which will then be sent for recycling.

We are looking for any small WEEE that they may have lurking in drawers at home, such as old computer consoles, hair-dryers, Ipods, mobile phones and chargers etc.

Lighting up Malawi

The Light up Malawi project aims to raise awareness of and money for solar lights for Malawi. We wanted to celebrate this project by lighting up the stage during our Scots’ Verse evening. Well done to the Eco Committee and School Choir to ensuring this event was a success.
