Our Power Off and Learn Outdoors Days were a HUGE success!
Thankfully the weather was kind to us and the rain clouds stayed away!
The children were outdoors all day participating in various activities such as freestyle cycling and scootering, using natural materials to decorate Easter eggs, making natural potions using nature’s garden, using their senses to write poems, taking part in a scavenger hunt and an obstacle course to name but a few!
The children loved learning outdoors and we hope they all slept soundly after their day in the fresh air!
We will be participating in Sport Relief 2016 on Friday 18th March 2016

Recycle old, unwanted clothes.
Our Waste Council are gathering up old clothes for our annual Rag Bag collection.
We will be distributing empty bags tomorrow and would ask that filled bags are returned on a Friday during the month of March!
We can only accept wearable clothing, paired shoes, handbags and belts.

Once again your co-operation is appreciated
Recently Primaries 5/6, 6, 7a & 7b have taken part in designing and creating an outdoor nature area, as part of our Outdoor Learning opportunities. We took the time to make plans for what our area would look like, then gathered all of the natural materials to create the area.
Unfortunately, we had to delay our plans due to the amount of litter in that part of our school grounds. The litter may have been blown in through the fence from the lane leading to Lilac from Whitelees. We have since cleared the area of cans, bottles, crisp packets, carrier bags and cardboard. This allowed us to proceed.
DID YOU KNOW?
A dog could cut it’s tongue on a piece of glass!
A hedgehog could get it’s head stuck in a tin can!
A fox could get it’s head stuck in the plastic that attaches beer cans!
A bird could choke on a crisp wrapper!
We hope this won’t happen in our wildlife area but we need your help!
Please be aware of any litter in the area surrounding our school playground. If you could always put your litter in a bin that would make such a huge difference to our wildlife.
Thank You! From Primary 5/6
