European Day of Languages

Well done everyone for another successful languages day.  P 1-3 designed t-shirts about France and all things French.  Well done to our t-shirts winners (photos to follow).  P4 -7 made a presentation in the form of a poster or powerpoint on the advantages of knowing more than one language.

Thank you to our mum and dad speakers and Craig our ex-pupil for their input.

If your child was one of the t-shirt winners, these are the care instructions – iron fix on the back for at least 4 mins and wash separately in cold water for first 3 washes.

Here are some of the Eagles hard at work.  More photos to follow. 

European Day of Languages 2018

 

Bonjour – Guten Tag – Hello

Just a reminder that Wednesday 26th September will be a non-uniform day as we will be celebrating European Day of Languages 2018.

Pupils are asked to wear house colours – Eagles- yellow, Hawk-green, Falcons-blue and Ospreys-red.

Children will be involved in a variety of activities with the rest of their house to celebrate all things French and to explore why it is useful to know more than one language.

We look forward to hearing from some specially invited speakers on their experiences with languages.

Sports Day Update

Weather permitting, Sports Day will go ahead as planned tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd May. If we have to cancel due to weather conditions, we will inform you by text and Blog post in the morning.

Lunchtime Arrangements

Before lunchtime, all pupils will be taken back to class to register and collect their packed lunches, etc. If we have received the signed permission slip to allow them out of school during lunchtime, P4-7 pupils will be sent to the office to be collected.  P1-3 pupils with permission slips will be able to be collected from the Dining Hall Fire Exit (at the greenhouse). Pupils who are not being collected by their parents will be escorted to the field by their teachers.

We hope you have a lovely picnic experience on the field. We ask that you encourage your child to stay away from any equipment that has been set up for the sports activities.

Remember to dress in your House colours to show some team spirit. Eagles – yellow, Hawks – green, Falcons – blue, Ospreys – red. Please wear or bring sun cream even if it looks cloudy, because we will be outside all day. Also, please wear a hoodie or waterproof jacket, just in case!

Thank you!

 

Rookie Rockstars Concerts

The Rookie Rockstars concerts at Ingliston Country Club on Tuesday and Wednesday night were amazing! The pupils turned up dressed to impress and ready to rock! They put on two great shows, showing off their singing and dancing skills as well as what the songs had taught them about anti-bullying and self-esteem.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the events happen: Rookie Rockstars for their guidance and songs, Ingliston Country Club for allowing us to host the events for free, the audience (families and friends) for your support, the many school staff who came to supervise and rock out, the school secretaries who acted as a professional box office for a few weeks, the janitorial staff who acted as roadies for a few days and most importantly the pupils who rocked their socks off!

If you would still like to purchase a CD to listen to for many years to come, please visit the School Office.

Many thanks,

Miss McDowall, Principal Teacher
