The primary 5 Swimming programme starts tomorrow.  ALL children in primary 5 should come to school in their sports kit and bring their swimming kit with them including a 20p for their locker.  They will be back to school in time for lunch.  children are not required to bring their school uniform to school.

P5 Swimming Programme



 Primary 5 will be participating in the North Lanarkshire School Swimming Programme commencing on Tuesday 25th August 2015 and running for 12 weeks until Tuesday 10th November 2015 inclusive. 


Your child will require swimming clothing, goggles, a towel and £1 for the hire of a locker and also gym kit, including trainers for the dryside activities. It would be advisable for the children to come to school on a Tuesday in sports kit which they can wear for their dryside activity to save any time changing from school uniform when they arrive at the Tryst Sports Centre.

The children will travel to the Sports Centre by bus organised by North Lanarkshire Council accompanied by School staff.

All pupils will have early lunch from 11:30 to allow travel time on the day.

Children will return to school before 3pm.


Summer Show Costumes



As you know the whole school are busy rehearsing for the summer show. 

Your child will have a clear notion of their part in the show by now and can advise if they have an alternative costume that is required.

ALL ORPHANS – The Primary 4-7 pupils are playing orphans from the Whitelees Orphanage and, if possible, are required to wear scruffy clothes and bring in dusters or cleaning utensils.

NYC GIRLS – should wear party clothes. 

BOYLAN SISTERS – party clothes

All other cast members will be given a breakdown specific to their character.


Our dress rehearsal is next Monday but we would be very happy if pupils could start bringing these items in as soon as possible and they can be stored in the classroom.

We would also love it if pupils could bring in family photos that can be played on the big screen as part of a slideshow at the beginning of the show.  These would be scanned and returned the same day.

We are all very excited for the show and your help and support in providing costumes and photos is very much appreciated.
