Scottish Celebration Afternoon.

On Rabbie Burns birthday, the whole school came together to celebrate this special day.

Each class performed songs or in the case of P6/7 , taught us new Scottish words. We also had the pleasure of listening to our marvellous P7’s playing violins.

We  had our annual Scottish Poem competition. Congratulations to all the children who represented their class in the poetry competition and our overall Bobby Muir Cup winner! A BIG THANK YOU to our judges who had a very difficult decision in judging all our brilliant finalists.

Health Week

The whole school enjoyed a range of activities for our Health Week.

These included the Smoothie Bike visiting us, 5 Star Athletics, the Castle Drive Run, P7 Athletics, healthy baking and Healthy Tuck Shop.

Thank you to everyone involved and all the parents who joined us on our run.

Spelling Bee

Well done to all the children who took part in our Spelling Bee competition. As well as show casing your spelling skills, just entering helped to earn points for your house.

Congratulations to our Class Winners and our Junior and Senior winners.

 

 

Pedal Cinema

We had the pleasure of having the opportunity to run a Pedal Cinema.

Alice Arnott from I Bike brought along two bicycles which had to be pedalled by the children in order for them to watch short films.

As well as being fun, this did help to teach the children about the importance of sustainable energy.

Thank you to Alice!

Great Braco Bake Off

Well done to all the children who  submitted an entry for our Great Braco Bake Off! Once again the standard of baking was very high.

Congratulations to all our winners and runner ups too.

A big thank you for our judges, Theo Chana, and Mrs Fridge’s mother.

 

Armistice Centenary

The children made wonderful artwork to help decorate the Hall for the 100th Anniversary of the ending of the First World War.

Throughout  the weekend the artwork was praised and commented on by a number of people in the community.

On Sunday at the War Memorial, one of our pupils read out a poem, which he had written, in front of the large crowd, who had gathered to remember the fallen.

Later on in the afternoon, children were invited to come along and play games to celebrate the ending of the War. A BIG THANK YOU to Mr Adrian Davidson who organised and ran these games. Winners received special memorial coins marking the Centenary.

Following on from this, the children took part in a candle lit parade to the Memorial and helped to remember each person, who died in the First World War , with a sparkler.

A BIG thank you to Walter Hanlon, who encouraged the children’s involvement in this special occasion.

 

House Football Tournamnet

On the last day of term we held our popular House Football Tournament.

All the children who entered earned points for their House.  The tournament was split into upper and lower school teams.  The rest of the children cheered on their House.

The winning team will be announced in the new term.

A big thank you to Mr Lee, who organised the tournament, and to Mr Mckenzie, who had the unenviable job of referee!
