Dyslexia Scotland Roadshow, Newton Mearns – 4th June 2013
A big well done to the Tug of War Team and Relay Runners who represented our school today at the Neilston Show. The Tug of War Team were first and both the boys and girls Relay Teams were second. A fantastic result for everyone involved.
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!
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.
Our Primary 6/7 pupils have been learning how to knit by volunteers from the Kirkton Centre. They have completed their 6 week programme and have all completed a piece for their class blanket. Well done to everyone involved.
James McKillop visited Primary 6/7 to share his experiences of having Dementia. This helped them to understand that people with Dementia are just the same as everyone else.
