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

G1-2 Sponsored Walk and Silence

G1-2 did a water focused topic at the beginning of Term 3.  The children suggested giving money to children in deprived countries who don’t have clean water to drink.  As a class we decided to do a sponsored walk and silence to raise money for UNICEF.  The children walked 2.2 miles this morning and then participated in a silence for 1 hour 20 mins!! Didn’t they do well! Some parents joined us for the walk and Finlay’s dad drove the support car for us.  We are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity…..we have raised almost £600!!!

We started at the school!
