Our Summer Fete this year is going to be very special. Join us on the 1st of June at Holmwood House, where our school began, to celebrate our 60th anniversary. See the flyer below for more details:
We have a four week trial of an online programme to support pupils when learning multiplication tables. All pupils from P2 to P7 will receive their login details next week. Please encourage your child to use this daily at home.
Further information is available on the document below.
Thank you to everyone who worked hard to improve our Chestnut Garden. It looks fabulous and will be a wonderful space for our children to learn, play and relax when they return in August.
Well done to all of our pupils who were recognised for their hard work and effort this year. Here are some of our star pupils with their awards.
Office 365 ProPlus
All Glow users, can get copies of Microsoft Office 2016 to use on their home devices – PC, Mac, phones and tablets.
This will enable the use of a range of Microsoft products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote etc) on up to 15 home devices without cost (the 15 licences being split as 5 for PCs and/or Macs, 5 for tablets and 5 for phones).
To do this, login to Glow, from the launch pad click the Office 365 Home tile (image below) then the “Install Office apps” button and follow the instructions.
Note that if downloading to an iPad or iPhone the process is different, the apps should be downloaded from the App Store and then log in using the Glow username. There is more information from Microsoft available here.
When logging in, you will be asked to enter your user name and this is your Glow user name plus the domain e.g. email@example.com, once you do this, you will be transferred to the usual Glow login screen, when you enter your details here your registration is complete.
The Glow username will only activate the software for as long as that account is active in Glow.
P1 Wednesday 22nd November
P7 Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st November
Photographers will be visiting the school next week to take photos of Primary 1 and Primary 7 pupils. The photos will be back in time for Christmas, so would make a nice gift for that relative who is difficult to buy for or simply a wonderful memento of what are very special years.
What’s more, for each photograph sold, the School/PSA will receive commission that will be used to benefit all children in the school – like Christmas parties or science workshops.
P1 photos will have your child sitting at a traditional school desk with traditional school items around them. This is designed to give a more interesting scene and relax the child. It will also be framed.
P7’s will have a book style presentation with single photo on one side and smaller photos of their classmates on the other side. They will also have the opportunity to collectively sign their names, something nice to look back on in years to come.
This is a new initiative so we welcome your feedback. However, we are sure that it will be a successful addition to the many wonderful fundraising experiences that are on offer throughout the school year.

PLAYGROUND ACTION DAY
SUNDAY 8TH OCTOBER
Any time from 11am-4pm
On Sunday, we are having the second in our series of Action Days where we are hoping to create a fantastic new mud kitchen, construction area, climbing hill and various other enhancements to the playground. It would be great if you could join us.
Feel free to come for all or part of the day – whatever time you can spare. If you can it would be good to bring any of the items listed below.
Label anything you bring and make sure you are kitted out to survive mud, water, paint or all three! Camping chairs, snacks/drinks and gloves would be sensible too.
Hope to see you all there!
- Wheelbarrows / trolleys
- Rakes and spades
- Watering cans
- Extension cables
