Friday was an exciting day for us! Not only was it a ‘Come as you Please’ but we were also raising money for our partner school, Sofia Academy in Burma.
We also had a special visitor, Ahmad Ayoubi, who himself had been a ‘stand by me’ child. He showed us how the money we had raised last year has helped the community and the new school we had helped build.
He met with the Rights Action Group and gave them worthwhile ideas about how we can strengthen our links with Sofia Academy.
P4a invited parents to help them make Viking longboats to enhance their learning about Vikings. Can’t wait to see them!
Primary 4 went on a Heritage Walk around Newark Castle. They were taken back in time and met a fisherman from the past who told them that the Clyde used to be called the Clutha. He told them about all the boats that got built around the area.
They also met Lady Margaret Crawford, Sir Patrick Maxwell’s wife. She lived in Newark Castle with her husband. He attacked her with a sword and kept her locked in her chamber for 6 months, living only on bread and water.
After 44 years of marriage and 16 children, she finally fled across the Clyde to Dumbarton, where she died. Sir Patrick was never called to account for his actions.
