The Sleepy Shepherd

This morning, our P1 children put on a fantastic Nativity performance of The Sleepy Shepherd, supported by their friends in P2 and P3!

Our gym hall was packed full and our little stars did not disappoint, as they acted, sang and danced beautifully, following a month of hard work and rehearsals!

Following an excellent re-telling of the traditional Christmas story from the point of view of one of the shepherds, our P2 and P3 children took to the stage to perform a selection of Christmas crackers, before all of our P1-P3 children joined together for the finale!

We’d like to congratulate our wonderful pupils for being the stars of the show, and thank our magnificent staff team and parent helpers for putting on such a wonderful performance for everyone.

We can’t wait to see it again tonight!

A Wriggly Nativity

Yesterday our Nursery class put on two amazing performances of A Wriggly Nativity, where they told the traditional Christmas story in a way that only the Nursery class could!

Every single one of our little stars had their important part to play in celebrating the arrival of the new baby, and the feedback given by our parents, grandparents and guests was wonderful.

Thank you so  much to everyone who attended and supported our children, to our fabulous Nursery staff team, and to our super older children who provided welcome music for our guests, as well as the narration for the show itself.

You were incredible boys and girls, and we were all so proud of you!

P6 and P6/7 Visit the City of Glasgow!

P6/7 and P6 had a very enjoyable and thought provoking trip to Glasgow. The trip was to visit the setting of our book Divided City and examine sectarianism in Glasgow. We attended a workshop run by St Mungo’s Museum- Glasgow A Sectarian City? We visited Glasgow Cathedral and the Necropolis. There were spectacular views over the city and we identified lots of Glasgow’s famous landmarks.

New P1 Pupils!

We are really looking forward to seeing all of our new P1 pupils on Thursday!  Parents should bring their children to the gym hall, via the front entrance for 9.30am.  Parents are invited to return via the main entrance at 2.30pm to visit the children in class!

End of Term Celebrations 2018

Yesterday afternoon we had a triple celebration!

We celebrated the hard work our pupils have done all term, the retirement of Mrs McLean, and our P7 pupils moving on to Airdrie Academy, Braidhurst, and Hamilton!  We’d like to wish everyone all the best for what’s to come! Enjoy the next chapter!

These photographs capture just a fraction of the energy and the emotion from an amazing assembly!

We’d also like to congratulate Mrs Polatajko, who will be leaving us next year to take up a new role as Principal Teacher at New Monkland Primary – they are very lucky to have her!

Class of 2018!

Our P7 ‘Class of 2018’ have been celebrating the end of term in a few special ways!  Take a look at the photos below from our joint P7 Party with our friends at All Saints, as well as from our boys and girls’ recent End of Term Trip – which they funded themselves (with a little help from our Parent Council) through a wonderful Enterprise project, where they held a Fun Day for the whole school!

We will miss you P7! We hope you have just as much fun at High School!

2nd Annual P1 Race for Life

This afternoon, our Primary 1 pupils and their parents and grandparents joined some of our staff to take part in our second annual Race for Life, in aid of Cancer Research UK.  Our P6 Sports Committee lead our children and their family members in a ‘gentle’ warm-up before they ran over 1km, starting in our school grounds and then heading off through the park in Cairnhill before turning and coming back down to the school to charge across the finish line under the watchful eye of the glorious sunshine!

Our children and guests then re-fueled with some juice and biscuits before taking to the podium to collect their hard-earned medals.

With the help of our school community, our boys and girls have helped to raise around £1250 for Cancer Research so far! Thank you so much for your incredible support.

Mr Innes would like to thank the fantastic staff team and wonderful parent helpers for helping to make this event a success.  He’d also like to thank the dedicated parents and grandparents who came along to run with the children and to cheer them on!

Most of all, everyone at Rochsolloch would like to say well done to our amazing P1 pupils! Great job boys and girls!

  • Dancing
  • Gymnastics
  • Boys and Girls Brigade
  • Rainbows
  • Tae-Kwon-Do
  • Karate
  • Judo
  • Running and Athletics

Whether achievements are made within or out with school, we are always so proud to hear about the successes of our pupils!

School Sports 2018

This morning we had our annual School Sports Day, bathed in glorious sunshine! Mr Griffin and Primary 7 have been working hard over the last few weeks to get everything ready for our young athletes. Our children were split into house teams and they rotated around eight different events:

* relay

* hocket dribble

* rugby run and throw

* netball shoot

* boccia bowls

* basketball

* tennis

* obstacle course

We finished off the event with a fun parents’ race…and our parents weren’t competitive at all!

Our children had a great morning, and were suitably exhausted when they returned to their classes!

Thank you so much to Mr Griffin and P7 for doing such a wonderful job, and to our guests who turned out in such great numbers to support the children. Thank you also for the wonderful feedback given to our staff and pupils after the event!
