Each week one lucky staff member has their name drawn out at assembly and we take time to recognise the many things that make them such a great part of our school!
This week it was Mrs McIntyre’s turn and she was delighted to read our comments and receive her certificate!
“She always smiles” “She is funny” “She has chats in the lunch hall”
“She is generous” “She is calm”
…and lots, lots more!!!!!!!
Well done Mrs McIntyre!

Our pupils enjoyed a chance to sing along with the ‘IF’ Campaign Song as part of our FairTrade Celebration today!
Congratulations to our FairTrade Committee who led a wonderful flash mob dance of Shakira’s ‘WAKA, WAKA’!
Great fun was had by all!
Wishing our P7 boys and girls ‘All the best!’ as they set off on their transition visit to Cumbernauld Academy.
They will spend today and tomorrow following their timetable and finish off on Wednesday with a Sports Ambassador Event, before returning to us at 12 noon.
We can’t wait to hear all about it!
Today our pupils were encouraged to be positive about their own reflection and appreciate themselves as much more than what they or others see on the surface.
A few shared their thoughts…
” I see freckles!” – Holly– ” I am really good at gymnastics”
” I have a beautiful face” – Enya – ” I’m great at reading”
” I see my mouth” – Erin – ” I’m wonderful at dancing”
” I have loads of spots” – Zoe – ” I try my best at everything”
” I have nice eyes” – Alia – ” I am fantastic at acting”
Some of the children commented on how hard it can be to say nice things about yourself as there are so many things we can say to compliment others. It can feel that we are showing off or being self centred to say something positive but when we have a chance to think about it, it’s okay to remind yourself and others of what it means to be YOU!
BUT…just don’t say too much about yourself in case you stop recognising what makes others great!
P.A.Th.S time gives us a chance to hear about what makes us special!
We were delighted to receive a certificate made especially for us by this lovely boy!
If you know how to read Arabic, you will see that our school name is on the right side!
Our Fairtrade Team have been teaching all pupils a special dance routine that will be performed on Monday as part of our Africa Day Celebrations.
Pupils are welcome to bring along a piece of brightly coloured clothing to wear during the performance…the more colourful, the better!
We can’t wait to see how our Flash Mob dance will look!
