I am sure that you will agree, all of our boys and girls thoroughly enjoyed Developing the Young Workforce week 2018. The wide variety of activities and outings that the children engaged with inspired them with ideas for future careers. A huge thank you to our parents and carers who volunteeed their time in order to supervise children on trips and outings out with school. We look forward to next year’s event, a huge thank you to Mrs McLean for organising this.
On Monday of this week, I will be attending a meeting at Head Quarters in respect of child protection, an area that we take seriously at St Bart’s. Claire from the dental team will also be visiting us to look after our pupils’ teeth and oral health. Thank you Clare.
On Tuesday, we are holding a meeting in my office in order to organise our Christmas Fayre on Saturday 1 st December. We have already sent out paper plates for our annual Christmas Plate competition, where one child from each class will win a prize for the most creative design. We look forward to the returns! Companies who are donating prizes for various raffles have recently been in touch and with me and we look forward to further donations. Thank you.
On Wednesday, I will be attending an early years meeting, where the upcoming 1140 hours expansion will be top of the agenda. There are exciting opportunities afoot within the nursery sector which will benefit our youngest pupils.
On Thursday, Celtic coaches will visit our school again and spend time with our Primary 6 pupils. I know that the coaches have been incredibly impressed with our boys and girls. Well done! Bernadette Newton from CLD will be taking a SQA group in our school. What a wonderful opportunity for some of our parents to achieve recognised qualifications .
On Friday, it’s P3’s assembly and I know that the children have been working hard to present a wonderful assembly for parents and carers. We are looking forward to sharing your experiences. In addition, nurses from NHS Scotland will be conducting flu immunisations which will benefit our pupils and keep them safe and healthy this winter. Sally will also be visiting us in order to teach our Primary 5 children, Kodaly techniques. This will further enhance the singing and musical talents of these children. What a great opportunity!
