Snapshot Jotters

Snapshot jotter fortnight will take place week beginning 14th September and will be sent home on Tuesday 29th September. This gives parents/carers the opportunity to gain some idea of the variety of work covered in a week and to speak with your child/ren about what they have learned. You will have the opportunity to comment on the work on the sheet in the jotter. Primary 1 children will receive a folder rather than jotter. There is also the opportunity to add photographs and details of out of school achievements. Numeracy and literacy targets set by pupils will also feature in the jotter. I hope you enjoy looking at the jotter/folder!

One Planet Picnic at Clarkston

Clarkston pupils were invited to create their own healthy picnic using local, Scottish ingredients as part of their Eco and Fairtrade elections. We sampled a wonderful variety of products during our One Planet Picnic event. Pupils were encouraged by their class teachers to consider ingredients which were seasonal, fresh and found locally within their environment. As you can see from the photographs below, the pupils certainly met their brief!

School Captains and Vice Captains

Congratulations to our new School Captains and Vice Captains for 2015-2016. School Captains and Vice Captains play a vital role at Clarkston Primary. A boy and girl are elected at the beginning of the year from Primary 7. Each pupil must stand for election by making a presentation or speech to gain votes from their peers. It is a much sought after position of responsibility within the school. Once elected, School Captains must maintain an extremely high standard of work as role models for younger pupils within the school. Well done to all pupils in Primary 7 who presented their speech this year, the calibre was exceptionally high!
