Week beginning 23rd September


The photograph above illustrates an example of hard work from the very talented boys and girls in Primary 3. What an artistic bunch, well done !

The week ahead looks like this…

On Monday , we say goodbye to our Primary 7 pupils, Mrs MacFarlane, Ms Kirkland and Ms McLaughlin, who leave for Kilbowie this morning. A huge thank you to all 3 members of staff who are sacrificing time away from their own families to ensure that our pupils experience all of the wonderful opportunities that Kilbowie provides.

Mrs McLean will be meeting a member of staff from St Conval’s in Glasgow in order to share our wonderful practice in numeracy and especially our methodical framework and planning format. You are most welcome!

Our Parent Council meeting will take place at 6pm in the Mark Millar Performing Arts Studio. This will be an informal meeting where parents, both familiar and unfamiliar with the school will have the opportunity to speak with current Parent Council members and find out first hand what a beneficial role this group contributes to the success of our school. Cakes, tea and coffee will be provided. We look forward to seeing you all then.

On Tuesday, Primary 1 to Primary 4 children will receive the very worthwhile fluoride treatment from our partners at the NHS dental team.  Oral health is extremely important and this particular treatment is a contributing factor to maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

On Wednesday, the fluoride treatment continues.A huge thank you to the NHS dental team for delivering this service. I will be visiting both  Primary 4 and then Primary 6a before lunch time in order to share in the wonderful learning experiences that occur on a daily basis. I am very much looking to my visits!  Primary 5  pupils will be out of school today, enjoying the wonderful experiences at Sky Academy Studios. This trip to Livingston will allow boys and girls to gain a better insight into the world of television and media. Over the past couple of years, our pupils have continued to thoroughly enjoy all the benefits that this experience provides. We look forward to hearing about it on their return.

On Thursday, Interim reports  will be sent to parents today. Please check School bags for these. Primary 5 children will enjoy another lesson from Sally Wilkinson, who will deliver another Kodaly input . Our boys and girls have already picked up some great skills and knowledge in music and will continue to do so. We all look forward to Jill Woodward, our Continuous Improvement Officer visiting us this afternoon and have great confidence that Mrs Woodward will be very impressed with the wonderful manners and welcome from our pupils.

We welcome our Primary 7 pupils and staff members back from their trip to Kilbowie at around 2pm. Parents and carers will be text with an estimated time of arrival in advance.

Friday is a holiday and pupils return on Tuesday. Have a great long weekend!

Mrs Bolland
