Ciar, Amy and Cara represented the school at the Beats of Brazil performance in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Wednesday 27th of March.
All pupils were fabulous and really enjoyed their time with the Beats of Brazil band.
Thank you to John and Marcia for supporting our kids in this experience and thanks to Mrs Ellis for supporting on the night !
We’ve been busy supporting people around the local community and the world!
World Book Day: We shared some fantastic stories in school and made book donation to Salvation Army Charity Shop
Crazy Hair Day: Everyone looked great with crazy hair/ hats and we made a huge donation to our local foodbank!
Friday Play Day: Learning about our friends across the world who don’t have all the toys we have- how do we play without toys?
Tomorrow is our Dress Down Day: Non- uniform day with £1.00 donation to SCIAF
Thank you to all our families for your support throughout the month!
Have a lovely holiday!
Thank you to all of the children and families in Firpark Primary School who supported us in raising awareness for Down Syndrome Scotland on Thursday 21st March 2019.
A donation has been made to Down Syndrome Scotland in the schools’s name.
Congratulations to our Cross Country Champions who came 1st and 2nd in the West of Scotland National Championship race at Bellahouston Park!
We have been very lucky over the past 8 weeks to have had Vince from Kami-Do Karate in Coatbridge teaching us new skills.
Here is some footage of Room 7 and Room 11 competing in the final Kata competition:
Cara was so proud of herself and worked so hard to get the 1st place trophy. Well done Cara! Ciar was delighted when he won the trophy for being the most improved in the class.
Vince has been so patient and encouraging throughout the Karate block and we can’t wait to see him again next year. Thank you from all of the boys and girls in the Junior Department at Firpark PS!
Congratulations to our graduates of the Windmill Cafe and Gardening Club!
Billy and Liam both received their CV’s and certificates from the Windmill Cafe detailing the programme of work they have completed over the past few months.
Nathan and Jack are pictured with their completed birdhouses that they made in the gardening club.
Thank you to Mrs Reilly and Mrs Brady for accompanying our boys to the clubs and supporting them through this wonderful experience!
Firpark Primary School attended the West of Scotland Swimming PI/VI Gala in Blantyre Sports Centre yesterday.
The pupils who represented the school were complimented on their outstanding efforts and behaviour throughout the day.
Liam from Room 12 attended and won 3 first place ribbons.
Zak from Room 10 attended and won 2 second place ribbons.
Aiden from Room 9 attended and won a first place ribbon.
Myles, Lee and Lewis from Room 8 attended and won a second, two seconds and a third place ribbon.
Finally, Alex from Room 7 attended and won a second place ribbon.
So its fair to say that Firpark PS had a very successful trip!
Special thanks goes to I. McMeekin from Firpark HS for organising and inviting us and to all of the officials from Blantyre Sports Centre, UWS and Firpark Secondary for helping us on the day. Thank you to Barry and Margaret for helping us on the day too.
Well done boys!
