The photographs above illustrate the wonderful talents that abound within St Bart’s. Congratulations from all of your friends at St Bartholomew’s. Both girls have received recognition for their abilities in dancing. Well done girls!
Huge congratulations to both Primary 6 classes on their wonderful efforts during their ‘Spain’ assembly. Parents and carers were very impressed, especially with the wonderful dancing, Spanish language content and delivering their lines so well. We are all so very proud of you…
Last week we also welcomed the management team from St Stephen’s Primary in Coatbridge. They had heard such wonderful things about our reading for enjoyment programme and our fabulous kitchen that they popped in to see for themselves. Needless to say, they were all very impressed and will take back some ideas to their own setting. We have been very fortunate to share in the wonderful work in numeracy that goes on in St Stephen’s and hope to take some ideas on board for our pupils. Collaboration and sharing ideas are keys to success for all of our pupils. Thank you Mrs Watt, Ms McGhee and Mrs Thornbury.
The week ahead looks like this:
On Monday, our teaching staff look forward to joining cluster colleagues for collegiate working in assessment and moderation at St Augustines Primary school , after school. We all look forward to applying new ideas. Our Parent Council meet at 6pm in the staff room to discuss improvements for pupils. As always, all are welcome.
On Tuesday, Mrs McLean and I will conduct pupil progress meetings with some of our teaching staff in order to discuss improvements for all of our pupils. MsDoyle will be out of school today, taking part in a development course. Mrs MacIntyre will be leading a multi agency meeting for one of our nursery children.
On Wednesday, we will continue with our pupil progress meetings. Our local artists will gather in the get together room this morning, it is always great to see our school used by the local community in such a positive way.
On Thursday, pupil progress meetings continue. Primary 5 pupils continue to enjoy Gaelic football – this is a wonderful opportunity for our boys and girls as this activity is usually preserved for Primary 6 and 7 pupils. Claire from the NHS dental team will visit us today in order to support our pupils’ oral health. Representatives from the CAMHS team will undertake meetings with some of our parents and carers who are taking part in the Incredible years programme.
On Friday, Mrs MacIntyre will meet with the early years panel to discuss admissions to our 2 year old nursery. We also look forward to announcing ‘Pupils of the week’ at our weekly assembly.
