As part of our Eco School Action Plan the Global Citizenship group held a Guess the Teddy’s Birthday event to raise money to support the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

This was very successful and raised £200 for the charity. Renfrewshire Council very generously matched this amount giving us a grand total of £400!!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part in making this event such a success.

Our lucky winner who guessed the correct birthday was……..

Zoe (P3C) – congratulations, we hope you love your husky.

Thank you for your continued support.

Good morning.  This is just a reminder of your costumes if you are in the River Clyde part of our assembly on Wednesday 21st. As discussed at yesterday’s rehearsal, if you are in the ‘public section’ please wear ‘normal’ out of school clothes. If you have any props e.g. a map, camera, shopping bag/handbag etc. it  would be great if you could bring them in. If you are in the ‘school’ section school uniform should be worn, if possible a shirt and tie would be perfect.

When you have organised your costume, please bring it to school as soon as possible (it must be in school for Tuesday as this is our dress rehearsal). Please remember to have it in a bag which is labelled clearly with your name and class. Your costume will be kept in class until our assembly.
