Primary 4 enjoyed learning more about the Scottish Parliament last week when our special visitor Mrs Miller came to visit Abronhill. We participated in electing our own party leaders, shared our manifestos, participated in our own election and an interactive quiz. We really enjoyed this visit and enjoyed being MSP’s for the afternoon and look forward to visiting the Scottish Parliament too!
The Sustainability Committee has been preparing our butterfly garden within the Broom Road park and today planted flowers. It is looking beautiful already, we can’t wait to see it when the flowers are in bloom! Thank you to the Abronhill Regeneration Forum @AbronhillF for gifting it to us ! @abronhillunited #communitymatters
The Enterprise Committee is helping the organisation Mary’s Meals by collecting donations for ‘The Backpack Project.’ We are collecting a variety of second hand and new items to send to children in Malawi to help them with their education. We will begin collection from May 13th and stop collecting 21st June. We are aware that pupils will still be using their schools bags up until the last week so they can be handed in last, if you wish to donate these.
Items can be placed in the collection boxes on the top corridor outside Room 15 by pupils. Please find below the list of items required.
The Abronhill Regeneration Forum has commissioned Sculptor James Elliott (James Elliott Chainsaw Sculpture) to design a wooden structure for the Broom Road Park. James visited us, Whitelees Primary and St Lucy’s Primary to discuss his design and gave a live demonstration of his skills. You can see the finished product here. The scultpure for the park will be bigger and have more detail relating to the Abronhill community. Watch out for it and enjoy it. Thank you to the Forum for always looking to enhance our community! @WhiteleesPS @stlucysabronhil @abronhillunited @AbronhillF
Primary 4 have been busy this week researching our own topics to allow them to write their own non-fiction books. They have been researching, note taking and have begun to write their first few pages of their books. Great work P4!
The Health and Wellbeing and Enterprise Committees joined forces for this committee session in order to try and raise LOTS of money for our school funds. The children participated in a sponsored fitness afternoon which was full of fun but VERY hard work! All donations/sponsor money should be sent to school by Friday 15th March. Both committees would like to thank you in advance for any donations given, they are truly appreciated!
