This term we hosted a brilliant ‘Aerobercise Challenge’, which helped the pupils earn extra points for their house. All of the points so far this term have been added together, making SHETLAND the current leader of the House Cup Race.
If your child is in the winning house, Shetland, as a reward he/she can have a non-uniform day on
Wednesday 26th October
Shetland pupils should wear their green Shetland T-shirt on this day with their normal school uniform clothes for their bottom half. Shetland pupils from P 3-7 will also be allowed a queue jump pass in the busy tuck line and all P1-7 pupils will be awarded an extra playtime to celebrate their win during the day.
P6b are working with a Kirkhill parent to help collect unisex adult clothes for the charity ‘Scottish Action for Refugees’ whose aim is to provide shelter and practical aid to Refugees living in Calais. More information about the charity can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/ScottishActionForRefugees/about/
We have been asked to collect only the items listed below:
Male underpants, size small and medium (new)
Socks (size 6-9)
If you would like to donate to the project please send item(s) in a polythene bag to school on the dates noted below.
Monday 24th October Tuesday 25th October
Wednesday 26th October
Primary 6b will collect the clothing each day and liaise with our parent contact to have them uplifted. The charity will then sort and bag the items and deliver them to Calais.
Thank you for helping.

First/Second Level Curriculum for Excellence I am learning to protect others, and to reduce the potential harm when possible.
UNCRC Article 19 You have the right to be protected from being hurt or badly treated.
Please note that Kirkhill will not be having a “Dress As You Please Day” on Monday 31st October 2016 this year. Pupils should therefore please come to school in their usual school uniform that day.
The Fund Raising Committee are coordinating a collection of any unwanted games or jigsaws. We would ask that these be in good condition.
Once collected we will distribute them to the appropriate classes for the children to enjoy during wet playtimes and Friday Fun.
We will provide feedback as to the success of this project in the coming weeks.
Please hand any donations into the school office by Friday 28th October 2016.
