Friday Bundle 01.04.22

Hello again everyone, I hope you are well and are looking forward to the holiday fortnight.

Calendar of Events
As promised, it is with great pleasure that I share the calendar of events in school and nursery for term 4.

Easter Service
We are delighted to be able to share our Netherlee Easter Service with you, which was recorded yesterday on Thursday 31st March, in Netherlee and Stamperland Parish Church. I would like to thank Reverend Blythe, and the church community, for welcoming our school into the church.  A huge thanks also to our P6 and 7 pupils who helped to lead and take part in the service, our wonderful P5 pupils for being attentive members of the congregation and Mr Watson and Mrs Wharton for putting this all together for us. We hope you enjoy being able to watch the service via the link here

Primary 5-Grow a £1 Challenge
The staff at Netherlee would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the pupils in Primary 5. Initially we were blown away by the wonderful ideas the pupils came up with on how to raise money for charity using just £1. Then, when we heard about the actual events and activities you took part in, it amazed us even more!

Together, you raised an incredible £1655.38 which has now been split and donated to the following charities:
MacMillan Cancer Support, C.H.A.S, Scottish SPCA, Alzheimer’s Society, Beatson Cancer Charity, Pancreatic Cancer Charity and the British Heart Foundation.
We would also like to say thank you to all the parents and guardians who helped with this challenge. We really appreciated your support!

This week our children took part in Taekwon-Do taster sessions delivered by Chris Scott from UKTC. Click here to look at the leaflet from UKTC detailing classes that may be of interest.

French Immersion Trip
We’re delighted to share with you that five members of staff from the nursery and school are heading to France over the holiday fortnight. They will join a group of practitioners from East Renfrewshire Council who will be immersing themselves in all things French in order to bring back ideas, resources and shared practice to further develop the languages curriculum in Netherlee. The weeklong trip has been funded by Languages for Education Europe (LFEE) and focusses on the linguistic skills, pedagogy and culture. They will spend time visiting primary schools to observe classroom and nursery practice, explore the French Education System and meet with other teachers and staff.  They are also hoping to build ongoing linked partner opportunities too. Please keep an eye on our Twitter feed for updates regarding how they are getting on. This is a very exciting opportunity and we wish them ‘bon voyage’ et ‘bonne chance’ on their travels!

P3-P7 Tuck
After the holiday, and with restrictions easing, we are once again able to give our Primary 3-7 pupils the opportunity to purchase from the Catering Team’s Tuck Shop at morning interval. For more information please read here.

Happy Holidays
I would like to wish all children, staff and families a really lovely, well-earned holiday fortnight. Please keep safe and enjoy some downtime. We will all be here, looking forward to seeing all of our children back again, on Tuesday 19th April.
