A huge thanks to  St Cadoc’s Football Team who have raised a fantastic amount of money during the winter league.

The boys decided to donate some of the money to the school.

This afternoon we were delighted to welcome them to our assembly as they presented us with an amazing cheque for £1000.

We are delighted with this and informed everyone that the money would be used to purchase some;

  • Tartan for Reels on Wheels
  • New hoodies for the Cross Country Team
  • New robes for the spa
  • Yoga mats.

Thank you to everyone involved for this very generous donation.

Thank You

Thank You to everyone who came to support our MAIRtrade Fair.

I’m sure you will agree it was a huge success as we encourage our pupils to help others.

The children have all worked so hard learning all about Fairtrade and how it helps others. They  were all successful learners as they promoted the use of Fairtade materials to produce all of their crafts and baking.

We are delighted to inform you that we raised the magnificent amount of £670

Have a look at some of our photographs below.

Classes Iona and Mull walked to the cafe at Newton Mearns Baptist church yesterday for pancakes.

On the way they practised their road safety skills and used the green man crossing.

At the cafe they all sat well and ordered delicious pancakes. Our Fairtrade lesson continued into the cafe as Leia discovered some Fairtrade sugar.

Today we welcomed pre school children from Isobel Mair Family Centre and the Glen Family Centre who will be joining us after the summer holidays.

This transition allows the pupils to get used to being in a new environment, meet their peers and staff and make the transition to school life a lot easier for them and their families.

Today they all enjoyed meeting their new friends and exploring different areas of the school.
