Gaining recognition for the wide range of achievements can increase pupil confidence, raise their aspirations, improve motivation for learning and keep them engaged in education. It is important that we recognise and celebrate achievements in all contexts for learning, through:
- the ethos and life of the school as a community
- curriculum areas and subjects
- interdisciplinary learning
- opportunities for personal achievement.
To help us gather this information on pupils’ personal achievements, I would ask you to follow the link below and provide the information required:
This link will remain live throughout session 2015-2016. You can add achievements as often as required by entering your child’s name, class and details of their achievement.

In advance of Remembrance this year we are looking for St Thomas’ Pupils to participate in events marking the new memorial. We will be dedicating the memorial on Saturday 7th November at 2.30pm and we were hoping that Neilston and St Thomas’ would play a part in the ceremony. We would be delighted if as many pupils as possible would attend on the day. In addition, we will also have our annual wreath laying on the Sunday 8th at 12.30pm at the memorial, where a St Thomas’ pupil will be bringing a wreath to lay.
We would be delighted if you could make it along on Saturday.
Councillor Paul O’Kane
