On Friday 23rd March IMS are holding a “fare thee well” to friends from our old cluster (Williamwood) and “Hello” to friends from our new Eastwood Cluster.

We have linked this event with Sports Relief and are holding our very own Special games throughout the day.

Pupils from both clusters are helping out and we will be supported by Alan Martin and the Active Schools Team.

Some of the events that will take place on the day are; Boccia, Curling, Scottish Dance and Football in the Muga.

It looks like it’s going to be a fun filled event and hopefuly the sun will shine for us on the day!

Class Whalsay Assembly

Class Whalsay organised the secondary assembly today. It was all about people who help us in the local community. The class made up a slideshow of all the people who help us and set up a quiz for the classes to take part in.
Thanks to Monsignor Monaghan for coming to see us and introduce the assembly. He told everyone that he was a friend of Dr Isobel Mair and she would be proud of the new school.

Mair for Us!

In August 2011 Mrs Wallace set IMS classes the £10 challenge, to see who could raise the most money for school funds.  Classes Whalsay, Shetland and Orkney successfully clubbed together to create and raffle a Luxury Christmas Hamper.  Following the success of this they have taken on the challenge of setting up and running a tuck shop for staff in IMS.  After a brain storming session they voted for the name – Mair for Us.  Following extensive market research the produce was bought and priced.  Now opening day has arrived!  The shop opened from 11.30 to 1pm, providing a range of treats to buy, with pupils from these classes working hard to ensure a high quality service.  The pupils have high hopes for a successful, money making tuck shop!

Good Luck everyone.

Swimming Gala

Good luck to pupils from Classes Cumbrae, Arran, Sanda and Mani from Tiree class who are taking part in the West of Scotland SEN Sports Association and Swimming Gala in Blantyre Leisure Pool tomorrow.

This is the first time that these classes have taken part so fingers crossed everything goes swimmingly!
