Rainforest Rescue

Mirin in P2 has raised an amazing £417.50 by doing a sponsored cycle. Here is the information from her ‘ Just Giving’ page. Outstanding, Mirin, Well done!

I am nearly 7 years old and have been doing a topic at school about the rainforest. I learned that the rainforest has a forest floor, understory, canopy and emergent layers and is really important for keeping the worlds air clean.

I was sad because people are cutting all the trees down to make money because they want to be rich.

I asked my dad how I could stop people cutting down the rainforest and we decided on a sponsored bike ride because I love cycling. I will be training hard before my big cycle on Sunday 25th May.

Please give any donation you can and I will give all the money to the World Wildlife Foundation to help protect the rainforest.

Thank you very much

Well done everyone from Primary 5 for helping us raise money and awareness for Down Syndrome.

Renfrewshire Association of Burns Clubs Competition

Once again, we were successful at the Robert Burns World Federation Schools Competition. Three pupils from Primary 7 enjoyed their day at the annual Renfrewshire Association of Burns Clubs (RABC) competitions run by the Robert Burns World Federation.  Leo McCarrey, having addressed the haggis at our school Burns supper in January, delivered a fine recitation again, narrowly missing a medal.  Sophie Inglis played ‘Loch Lomond’ beautifully on the piano and gained second place while Aidan Lau impressed the adjudicators with an amazing performance of  ‘Shetland Fiddler’ on the piano.  He won a gold medal and the overall winners’ cup and will go forward to the National competition in May where we are sure he will astound judges with his musical talent.

K’Nex School Challenge

Once again  Primary 6 pupils had a fantastic time taking part in the K’Nex School Challenge. Their task was to design and make an exciting piece of apparatus for a playground. They had to draw some of their ideas before they started to build their model. Their designs had to be sturdy and safe for children to play on.

 The three judges were impressed with their drawings and models.

Congratualtions to Sophie McP and Jack M who won the School K’Nex Challenge. The runners up were Laayan A and Meriel G. They are looking forward to taking part in the K’Nex Cluster Challenge in April.

The runners up were Laayan A and Meriel G.

Congratulations to all of the Primary 6 pupils who took part!
