A huge well done to Team Uplawmoor who represented our school at the annual Neilston Show. They have trained hard in tug and relay over the past few weeks and we are proud of their positive attitude towards their training.
A special congratulations to the girls relay team (Carly, Toni, Ashley, Mia, Mary- sub) who came first! What a wonderful achievement.
Here is a short video which illustrate how East Renfrewshire’s school meals service works on a daily basis. This may be of interest to the parents of our new pupils joining us in August!

Rian and Alexander did us proud today at the City of Glasgow College as they represented Uplawmoor Primary School at the Knex semi-final. 3,456 pupils from the West of Scotland took part in the challenge and 15 teams (each team consisting of 2 pupils) got through to this semi-final. We cannot show their design as the competition is still going on, but they created a superb piece of work which they are so proud of. Well done boys on getting this far! What a wonderful achievement.

The boys and girls had their first taste of technologies, textiles and cooking masterclasses on Friday. The Primary 6/7s are sewing coasters, Primary 4/5 started cooking with making a Greek Salad and Primary 1-3 are learning to work with wood and will be making pencil holders.
The children will rotate each fortnight to experience each masterclass.
Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organised by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The event is held worldwide annually encouraging us to turn off our non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m as a symbol for our commitment to the planet. Earth hour takes place on Saturday night, so the Eco-Committee decided we would celebrate Earth hour this afternoon with lots of outdoors activities and games.
‘A Celebration Of Scotland’ will take place tomorrow, Friday afternoon, 24th of March in the gym hall. Please remember it is strictly a ticketed event.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
Children should be dressed in full school uniform (and our younger pupils should bring their wellies!)
