This year, our commemoration of Remembrance Day on 11th November took place at a special assembly led by our English P5 and P6 pupils. They have been working on a class topic about WW1 and shared their learning with the other pupils of the school and parents and families who were able to join us for the service. As part of the service, Rev. Macleod led us in marking the traditional two-minute silence.
On a bright and sunny Sunday morning, Ross Maciver and Claire Steven from Sgoil a’ Bhac gathered with the many members of the community to participate in a service of Remembrance at the war memorial in Back. As part of the ceremony, they laid a wreath on behalf of all the children and staff of the school.
They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
There were an impressive 88 shoeboxes collected at the school this year for the annual Blythswood Shoebox Appeal. We would like to thank all the children, families and staff who donated to the appeal this year.
The shoeboxes have now left the school and have begun their journey to eastern Europe to bring some seasonal cheer to those in need.
This week, Sgoil Araich Loch a Tuath had a visit from the Police as part of their lrarning activites about people who help us. The visit was arranged with the help of PC Fraser. Al the children in nursery that day really enjoyed the visit.
