COP26 Our Dear Green Place

Last week our Primary 7 children worked on a video submission as part of the launch of Our
Dear Green Place, Getting Ready for COP26.

We created two videos where we shared the work our establishment has already completed and undertaking for Learning for Sustainability. Our second video was about the ‘pledge’ our establishment is going to do moving forward and how we will carry this out.

Hyndland Primary Recipe Book

This session our Parent Council are looking at ways in fundraise money for our school. They are going to be creating a Hyndland Primary Recipe Book with recipes from our families and local community. We would love for as many people to get involved as possible and it would be great to capture recipes from every culture and nationality represented at Hyndland Primary.

 

If you would like to submit a recipe such as a favourite family dish, homemade bake, lockdown lifesaver or favourite tipple then we would love to hear from you! Please submit your recipe at the link below by Wednesday the 21st of April.

Family submission: https://forms.office.com/r/fbjpuL0CwZ

 

Alternatively, if you are a local restaurant, bakery, eatery, or chef, we would love for you to share a recipe with us to be included in the book. We would also like to hear what inspired you to start cooking/baking/making to encourage our young people to start their creative journeys! You can submit your recipe at the link below by Wednesday the 21st of April.

Partick & Thornwood Ideas Fund

Our local Annexe Communities Group group have opened a fund aimed at under 18s applying for individual funding. You may remember the school was awarded funds for outdoor learning just before Christmas, when our P7 pupils put forward a video proposal. The individual funding being offered this time, may be beneficial for some of our pupils who perhaps have limited devices at home for the purpose of Home learning. All applications will need to be supported by an adult sponsor. Further information and applications will be Groupcalled out to all our families today

We Need Your Vote!

This year we have applied to the Partick & Thornwood Big Idea Fund for a grant to buy outdoor learning and sports equipment.

If you live or work in the Partick or Thornwood area, we need your help! Please spread the word so that we can get as many votes as possible!

Voting is open now and closes on 16th November.

You can vote for us at:

Car Free Zone

Our School is beginning an 18 month trial of a Car Free Zone on Fortrose Street on weekdays, during term time within the periods 8:30 – 9:15 am and 2:45 – 3:30pm.  This is part of Glasgow City Council experimental Traffic Regulation Order.

Most traffic will NOT be permitted to move in Fortrose Street during the periods detailed above. This includes parents and families dropping off and collecting pupils.   We, kindly, request the compliance and goodwill of our community in adhering to these measures to improve the health and safety of everyone.

Please note, exemptions apply for Blue Badge Holders, emergency and primary care vehicles as well as residents with permits for vehicles.  These vehicles and some others will be allowed to park and move within the stated times.  However, the measures should greatly reduce traffic around the school gate and encourage healthier and more environmentally friendly journeys to school.  We encourage everyone to show understanding, kindness and respect for each other and the rules, as we all adjust to the new measures.

Further information, FAQs, and for an opportunity to feedback your views, please follow the link below.

Pupil iPad Deployment

In January our pupils will have access to iPads to support their learning. This is part of a council wide programme called Connected Learning.

 

As part of the programme pupils in P1-5 will share 1 iPad between 5 children and pupils in P6&7 will receive their own iPad.

 

As part of the rollout out we are hosting parent/family information sessions on Monday the 16th of December where you can come along and learn more about what the rollout means for your child’s learning at Hyndland Primary School. There will be three information sessions throughout the day and you are invited to attend the session that suits you, the sessions will be held in the hall from 14:00-15:00, 15:30-16:30 and 17:00-18:00. Please note that due to space restrictions we are asking that a maximum of two people per family attend.

 

You can sign up to the session of your choice HERE

 

Next week pupils in P6 and P7 will also be issued with Pupil Acceptable Use agreement that they must read with their family, sign and return to thier class teacher by the end of term. Failure to return the agreement will result in them not receiving their iPads in January.
