Mrs Gray’s retirement

Mrs Gray has retired after working in Uplawmoor Primary for 18 short years.  The whole school put on a show which celebrated Mrs Gray’s retirement.  We sang some songs and the P7s shared their favourite memories of Mrs Gray.  The instrumentalists played some of Mrs Gray’s favourite music, including Katie’s version of Titanic.  To top it off, the Glee club performed ‘Time of your Life’ as a tribute to her imaginary boyfriend (Patrick Swayze

Mrs Gray gave P6/7 and P4/5 a tub of chocolates and P1-3 received a box of Haribos.  We had a wonderful afternoon and we hope Mrs Gray and her family enjoyed themselves.

We will miss you Mrs Gray!   By Luca P7


The boys and girls of Uplawmoor Primary School are all members of a school committee.  Each committee meet on a Tuesday where children have the opportunity to work with a member of staff to discuss ideas linking to their committee and plan upcoming events.  This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to raise the profile of the school and lead us towards excellence.

The website committee are in charge of keeping our website up to date so please come and speak to Ruby, Jack (M), Jack (W), Christopher, Dylan, Rob or Luca if your class are doing something exciting and we will happily put it on the website!

Dance Champs

The Uplawmoor Dance club did our school proud last night as they came joint second in the East Renfrewshire Dance Championships.  The competition was held at Eastwood High School and out of fourteen acts, Uplawmoor Primary’s Street Dance routine earned them joint second place.  The girls (and Matthew) performed a Tinnie Tempah, Willow Smith and Black Eyed Peas medley.  Well done to the Uplawmoor Crew!  We are all so proud of you!

Comic Relief

Our fundraising today raised over £700 for Comic Relief and there is still sponsorship money to come in.  This whopping amount was raised by dressing Funny for Money, selling red noses, joke books, wristbands, Red Nose biscuits and from sponsorship for our Dance-a-thon.  Thank you to everyone for joining in and for helping us raise so much money.  We will let you know the final amount raised very soon.
