We are getting excited for our OutRight event on Wednesday 20th November 1:10-3:00pm.
All parents and families are welcome to join us in celebrating the 30th birthday of the UNCRC.
We will be learning about the UNCRC, the difference it has made, what still needs to be done and how we can help children have their rights met locally, nationally and across the world.
We look forward to seeing you then!
Thank you to all the children and families who donated a shoebox for the Blythswood shoebox appeal.
The shoeboxes will go some way to help those in need around the world and work towards meeting Article 27 as boxes include warm clothing, soaps, shampoos and toothbrushes/paste.
Today the Pupil Council taught us our ABCDE of rights.
We were asked to do a diamond nine ranking activity with some of our rights which led to interesting discussions about which rights we felt were most important and why.
All groups had Article 27 “You have the right to food, clothing, a safe place to live and to have your basic needs met.” as our most important right. this was because it ensures our survival and our right to life, so the groups felt this needed to happen first.
Of course after learning our ABCDE of rights we learned that our rights are EQUALLY IMPORTANT or INDIVISIBLE.
Thank you to all the community volunteers who have kindly helped us so far with our knitting and crochet club.
The children are very much enjoying learning a new skill and are working hard towards their target of creating dementia friendly knee blankets for local care homes.
Next knitting club meets on the 20th of November 3-4.
Collace Primary would like to thank everyone for coming along to the MacMillan Coffee Morning on Friday. So many of you turned up we had to find extra chairs, tables and cups!
All the hard work baking, pouring, stirring, mixing, cycling, eating, drinking, chatting went towards raising just over £500 for this important charity – thanks all round!
We worked together towards the end of last term, and as part of our transition programme to create an updated charter for 2019-2020.
The children worked in groups to decide which rights or needs were met in school, in the community and at home.
We then agreed on a set of rights which were met at school and decided on behaviours the pupils and staff could do to make sure everyone enjoyed those rights in our school.
We all added our seals of approval as a way of signing up to our new school charter.
We have decided to have a “Right of the Month” to help us learn more about our rights.
Every month we will hold a competition to illustrate the right through either writing, drawing or photography.
Each right we choose will be a right we have identified as being met at school and is included in our school charter.
Our pupil feedback for our “incredible ideas” box is also around this right- how do you think teachers and staff should gather your opinions? Please add your ideas to the incredible ideas box.
‘Our Flowers are Wowers’ was the slogan, and judging by sales, they most certainly were!
Many thanks to everyone that came along to support the school in this year’s plant sale and enterprise projects.
Products by Blooming Baskets and School of Rocks were also in high demand and it did not take long before they were all out of stock.
Altogether, we raised nearly £1000 – more than ever before!
A special, enormous THANKYOU, to the parents who helped us nurture the plants in the lead-up to the sale.
Here are some images inspired by the success of the day
Thank you to everyone that came along to support the children on Friday 7th June in their recent languages event.
This year, the theme was The Tour de France, and parents/carers learnt about French culture, sport and history as they toured the classrooms.
The children worked really hard in the run-up to the event and did exceptionally well in delivering their talks in French.
A special thank you to Mrs. Bickerstaff for all her help in the preparatory work.
We took part in an initiative launched by Living Streets Scotland to encourage active travel to school. This took place from the 13th to 24th May. On the 22nd May it was announced that –
Collace Primary School was the 6th most active school in Scotland!
Well done to all children and parents/carers involved.
