There were lots of entrants from Uplawmoor Primary School for the 1k at the gala and we look forward to seeing their medals and trophies at assembly. A special WELL DONE goes to the 3k runners. There were only 2 school entrants for the 3k distance. Christopher Rae returned in 3rd place for the boys with a time of 12.58 And most especially Alex goldie who was our youngest entrant, she ran a determined race despite being up against girls much older than her – some in high school! Both runners were a credit to themselves and the school and we are very proud of them both. Well done Alex and Christopher!

Primary 2/3 are learning about the rights of the child in their Rights Respecting School topic. The children acted out situations where rights were being respected. The acted out their rights to an education by listening to the teacher, learning and including everyone. The also looked at their right to be safe and acted out some unkind behaviour in the playground. Well done Primary 2/3! You certainly know your rights!
It was lovely to see so many people turn out for the official opening of the Uplawmoor Play Park. Mrs McKay was delighted to be asked along to cut the ribbon. Everyone had fun trying out the brand new equipment especially Mia who said the old swings “squeaked”. Mhairi said the new park was “awesone”. We are sure it will be well used over the October Break. We hope everyone has a great holiday and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday 24th October.
