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!
You will see from the lengthy post that the Christmas season is definitely upon us! There is so much to do at this time of year and we would like you to know that we appreciate your support at this busy time.
Monday December 3rd- We welcome Miss Gillian Forrester to Abronhill Primary School and Nursery Class. Miss Forrester is a class teacher and will be working throughout the school between now and June. She will be teaching primary 7 until the Christmas holidays.
Tuesday December 4th- An athlete from Sports for Schools will be with us this afternoon. Jade Nimmo excels as a long jumper and currently holds the Scottish record. She will be doing activities with all classes.
Wednesday December 5th- North Lanarkshire Council will be hosting visitors from our partner region in Strasbourg, France throughout this week. On Wednesday, we have been selected to have some of the visitors come to our school. I know our children will impress them with their hard work, skills and excellent behaviour.
Thursday December 6th- Christmas Lunch Day! Please note that if your child wants to have a lunch then he/she should have returned the slip showing their choice. This is our busiest lunch day of the year, therefore, we need to know exact numbers beforehand so the orders can be placed. If your child has not ordered a lunch in advance, then he/she must bring a packed lunch or be collected for a home lunch.
Friday December 7th- Christmas Fayre. Please see times below: Nursery: 10am-11am (nursery parents can also come in the afternoon but this is the nursery’s dedicated slot). P4-7: 11am-12pm P1-3: 1pm-2pm We appreciate all of your support at this event. The children have worked hard on their crafts and we would like to give a massive thank you to our hard working Parent Council who have organised the Fayre.
Sunday December 9th: It might be Sunday but we are still busy spreading Christmas cheer! Our choir will be participating in the Festival of Light along with many other choirs from around Cumbernauld. This event is held each year in different churches. This year the Festival of Light will take place at Sacred Heart Church, Kyle Road, Cumbernauld at 7.30pm. We look forward to meeting other choirs and hope you can come along to support.
Abronhill Primary are excited to announce that we will be taking part in the Scottish Engineering Leaders Award during the 2018-2019 academic year.
The competition will be challenging primary and secondary pupils in Scotland to research engineering, interview inspiring engineers and interpret the question “If you were an engineer in Scotland – what would you do?”
Are you an engineer or do you have links to the engineering industry? If the answer is YES then please contact the school as we need your help!
This year the Enterprise Committee have decided to raise money for Children in Need. We are holding a pyjama day on Friday 16th November, if you wish to take part then all you have to do is wear your pyjamas on the day and donate £1.
We will also be holding a raffle to become Head Teacher for the day. Raffle tickets will be 20p for 1 and £1 for a strip of tickets. If you win the raffle you will be the Head Teacher for the day and give out the certificates at assembly, have a special table at lunch and much more.
