Friday Focus Groups

This session we have launched our Friday Focus Groups. All pupils in P5/6/7 participate. The pupils are divided into three groups and throughout the session will rotate and have opportunity to experience all the groups. The groups are “The Green Team”, “Healthy Choices” and “The Press Gang.”
The main focus for “The Green Team” has been to tidy up the garden area at the front of the school and to improve the look of the school grounds.
The Press Gang has been busy keeping people in the school community up to date with all the news from the school. Keep reading the Loch a’ Tuath News for our monthly updates. They also have allocated areas in the social Area for each class to report about what is going on in their class.
The Healthy Choices group has been learning about healthy eating choices and baking different foods such as healthy buns and tasting different types of food.

Blythswood’s Shoebox Appeal

Grateful thanks must go to all those whose generosity meant that 102 Shoeboxes from Sgoil a’ Bhac  were loaded up into cars this afternoon to be taken to the collection point in Stornoway. There, they will be checked and packed ready for their onward journey to some of the poorest regions within Eastern Europe. This is a phenomenal effort on the part of pupils, parents and staff and our hope is that the Sgoil a’ Bhac shoeboxes will bring much needed comfort and joy to those who need it in the coming weeks.

BLYTHSWOOD SCHOOL ASSEMBLY

We were absolutely delighted to have Rhona Matheson from Blythswood in school on Wednesday 11th October 2017 for a joint Assembly with Sgoil a’ Bhac and Tolsta Primary School. Rhona came to tell us all about the Shoebox Appeal for this year.

Shoebox leaflets were distributed to all pupils earlier in the month and already we are seeing them coming in. Please have your shoeboxes in school by Friday 27th October 2017
