Our pupil council have launched a cyber search to encourage the use of the school website.
We have issued the entry forms double sided to allow the pupils to choose which side they complete, they may even wish to complete both however it would only count as one entry!
On one side is a picture search and the other is a word search.
If your child wishes to take part they simply hand their completed form with their name and class clearly marked on it to Miss McCabe P7 teacher or their pupil council representative in class along with the 50p entry fee.

Reminder for Crazy Hair Day!!
A ‘Crazy Hair Day’ has been organised for Friday 21st November. On this day we ask for pupils to come to school in uniform but with ‘crazy hair.’ Instead of a donation we ask they bring along items for the Christmas Hampers which will then be raffled at our Christmas Concerts. Their donations on the day should be:
- P1 and P2 – Packets
- P3 and P4 – Tins
- P5 – Sweets/Confectionery
- P6 – Toiletries
- P7 – Bottles/Packets
Please note that if the bottle any P7 pupil is bringing to school is one of the alcohol type we would ask parents to hand this into the school office and not give to the children to bring to school themselves.

East Renfrewshire October Holiday Activities Programme
The whole school was delighted to see Kimberley Renwick one of the first gold medal winners of this year’s commonwealth games. She popped in to tell us about her experiences at the games and encourage everyone to take up sport. She said she had started judo when she was only four years old along with her older brother and sister, not knowing that one day, she and her sister would be displaying their medals together.
