Communications Team

Our communications team aim to canvas the feelings and opinions of pupils on all aspects of the community life of the school and to share this in a variety of ways.  They  aim to highlight what is going on in the school, what the boys and girls are saying and to pass this information on in a number of ways – through a school magazine and a pupil blog!!

  1. Rabbie Burns Festival

    St Augustine’s Primary 6 and 7 pupils had a Rabbie Burns Festival. They sang all of the classics but with a twist. All the parents came to see them in action and also a special guest from the local Burns community. After all the singing the pupils had haggis, neeps and tatties.

  2. Euro Quiz Interview

    6 weeks ago we interviewed Primary Six pupils who went to the Euro Quiz. We found out that it was in Cumbernauld at 12 noon. Some people felt very nervous; some found it great fun; but most of all they felt cool at the stage of preparation. In the Euro Quiz one of the subjects was Geography and it was very scary.

  3. On Tuesday the 19th of April the whole school of St Augustine’s went to an assembly. We had a special visitor called Greg. He talked about something called Beat the Street. He showed us a Beat Box and a fob. A fob is a little green key ring. There are many Beat Boxes around Coatbridge. Greg told us when you are walking to school you scan your fob at the Beat Box you will get 10 points for the school. The scheme will be going on for 6 weeks and it the end of that we will see what primary school gets the most. Tesco will be providing a prize for the winning school.

    As part of Health Week, most of the classes had a talk about road safety. There was a large truck from Marks & Spencer’s. There were four safety points in the truck. The front, the back and the two sides. Two children, Ayla and Aidan, went inside the truck at the front and 29 children and 3 adults screamed from the back and no one could hear.

  25. On Monday the 11th and Tuesday the 12th of June our Primary 7 pupils, along with the other pupils starting in August, went up to St. Ambrose for their 2 day induction. The point in the induction was to get the pupils used to the grounds and classes. On Monday the pupils followed routine as usual up until lunch, afterwards they had an afternoon of sporting fun set up by Mr. Hefferson – the St. Ambrose P.E teacher consisting of Football, Rounders and Benchball. The next day the P7’s had the opportunity to watch the school plays first showing in front of an audience. It was a great opportunity for pupils to meet future classmates and friends. Everyone loved the visit and is looking forward to attending after the summer holidays.
