Congratulations to our fabulous upper school pupils who have enjoyed continuous success!
Last week was another busy week in St Bartholomew’s Primary. Fr O’Kane visited us on Tuesday to hear confessions for our P4 to P7 pupils, this was especially important as it is the very special season of Lent . Our Primary 3’s were a credit to themselves and their families on Tuesday evening as they celebrated the sacrament of Reconciliation in St Bartholomew’s Church. Their singing was so well received that we asked them to perform one of their beautiful hymns during assembly on Friday. They were superb! I also visited Primary 5 last week and shared in the children’s learning in financial education-the children knows so much about keeping their money safe. Well done boys and girls. I attended a family group lead’s meeting and worked collaboratively with colleagues across the authority. On Friday, Ms McCleery from Strathclyde University visited P6a and was very impressed with our wonderful boys and girls.
Please remember to look for our most recent newsletter in your child’s bag as it provides you with up to date important information on recent events and the coming weeks ahead.
The week ahead looks like this:
