Valentines disco

Our school had a Valentines Disco on Thursday the 12th of February. Our page boy was Matthew and our maids of honour were Abbie and Catherine. The queen and other page boy was from St Davids. The other page boy was Shaye and our gala queen was Courtney. The gala day is a parade and after the parade in the big football park there are shows and people do dancing and the queens crown gets placed . The gala day royal are going dress shopping to pick their dresses and the boys will also go with the girls to get their kilts. We are going sometime in March.  This year the  gala day is on Saturday the 13th of June.



In I.C.T. we are learning how to be safe on the internet  I already knew how to be safe but its nice to have some friendly reminders.

We were also learning about internet safety. I am really enjoying it its so much fun. I can be safe on the internet.  I have learned to never talk to strangers and never give out personal information.

Hello and welcome!

Hello and welcome to the Plains Primary School Blog.

We hope that this is another easy way for you to keep in touch with what is going on in our school and allow us to share information with you.

Our pupils have been working hard in ICT and have been learning about different ways of communicating and also how to stay safe while online.  Stay tuned for our next post which will come from P6/7 as they try out another method of communication!
