Rights Respecting Schools Concert

Elderbank Choir performed at the Greenwood Academy Rights Respecting Schools Concert held on Wednesday 14th September 2016. The concert was supported by all primary schools in the Greenwood cluster and Elderbank were proud to play their part in supporting the concert which helped raise funds for North Ayrshire Young Carers and UNICEF.

The funds raised have helped provide some respite for North Ayrshire’s Young Carers and will also provide some inspired gifts for children overseas. These gifts include; Tetanus vaccines for 1000 children, a bicycle, a vaccine carrier for a health worker and chalkboards for 100 children.

A big thanks to Mrs White and Mrs Walker for rehearsing our star performers from Elderbank and of course a huge thanks to our choir members for giving up their time and talent to make the concert such a wonderful and worthwhile event.

French In Elderbank

Two classes worked together to create a fabulous video encompassing all they had learned and more. P3 and P6 not only worked with each other but together with a local company called ‘Halo Productions’. This link with industry gave them the confidence to animate their ideas. Pupils acted as script-writers, stop-motion animators, voice-overs, designers/artists, singers, directors and producers. The results are ‘formidable’! Elderbank also have hearing impaired pupils and BSL is our L3 for other pupils and teachers. In order to be fully inclusive, we have signed the English parts of the animation.

Author Visit

Pupils from Primary 6 and 7 enjoyed a visit from author David Goutcher as part of Tidelines Book Festival. He spoke to pupils about his new book ‘Polybius: The Urban Legend’ and ‘Spy Quest’ an interactive computer game.
