Most advent calendars start full and then empty as we get closer to Christmas. This year we invite Kirkhill families to fill a “reverse advent calendar bag”
We hope that you will place into a bag items for East Renfrewshire Good Causes. We would invite children to bring bags into school on Thursday 19 December. The children will then take their bags to the Christmas Service at Broom Parish Church. Broom Parish Church have kindly offered to deliver the items we donate. We would like to thank Broom Parish Church for this kind gesture.
We would welcome donations of the following items:-
Tinned meat/fish/soup/beans/spaghetti/mac cheese etc.
Packs of dry pasta and pasta sauces
Tinned fruit and tinned deserts
Toiletries – toothpaste/brushes, shampoo, soap, anti perspirants/deodorant, disposable razors, all types of ladies hygiene and sanitary products.
Please note, We have been asked not to include selection boxes as the donations will cover the next 12 months.
In gathering donations, you will be supporting East Renfrewshire Good Causes and be supporting families in East Renfrewshire over the festive period and beyond. For further information on East Renfrewshire Good Causes, please click on the links below.
Thank you for all of your support
Phase One – building
We recently updated our anti-bullying policy. Thank you to our pupils and parents who have helped to create this and for your ideas. The document can be accessed through the following link;
In January some of our pupils will be working with Miss Harvey to create a pupil friendly version to have in our classrooms and to support everyone in Kirkhill Primary.
The Kirkhill Primary Technology House Challenge will be held next Friday (13th December). You have arranged your groups and discussed some ideas in class. You can use Teams to organise who is responsible for bringing in the resources you plan to use (junk modelling), but don’t give away any ideas!
