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

World Book Day and Sponsored Readathon

Just a reminder that our sponsored readathon has started. I hope you are all enjoying discovering new books and authors!  It continues until March 2nd when we celebrate World Book Day.  Children should come to school dressed as their favourite book character or wearing onesies/pyjamas. It is not an own clothes day so school uniform should be worn if you choose not to come dressed in one of the options.  Suggested donation is £1.  We will have lots of exciting activities happening during the day.  Children should bring a favourite book to school with them on March 2nd.

Children will soon be taking home their £1 book token which can be redeemed in various retailers against a special World Book Day £1 book or to put towards the cost of another book.

Happy reading everyone!

Dear Parent/Carer,

All pupils will be involved. Tickets are free of charge and will be limited to two per family in the first instance and then will be on a first come first serve basis. We look forward to welcoming you to this event.

Rookie Rockstars – Tuesday, 2nd May and Wednesday, 3rd May 6.15-7.30pm

This year, as part of being a Nurture Pathfinder School we have introduced Bounce Back. To consolidate this, we have organised a whole school visit from Rookie Rockstars, a Music and Anti-Bullying Charity. Rookie Rockstars will work with the pupils the week beginning Monday 24th April, to teach them songs and record a CD. The theme of the songs promotes self-esteem and values. The following week we have organised two events to showcase the songs at Ingliston Country Club, Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd May, 6.15-7.30pm.

The Eagles and Ospreys will perform on Tuesday 2nd May then the Falcons and Hawks on Wednesday 3rd May. As we expect a high turnout for this event we will be limited to sell two tickets per family in the first instance and then will be on a first come first serve basis. The cost of the tickets will cover the expenses of Rookie Rockstars. CDs of the songs will be available to pre-order and other merchandise will be available at the events. £1 from every CD sold will help to raise money for the school funds.

Ingliston Country Club have very kindly agreed to host this event free of charge as they would like to promote community spirit. Palomino’s restaurant will be open before and after the event but they expect to be busy, so please book at least two weeks in advance and leave plenty of time for service. They will also be opening ‘On the Hoof ‘at 5.00pm offering hot snacks, filled rolls, cakes, pastries, teas & coffees etc. This is an indoor facility and has a seating area with tables, although the arena is quite cold so dress appropriately. More information about the events will be provided nearer the time.

We are very excited about this whole school event as Rookie Rockstars has an amazing reputation. Please visit their website for more information: https://rookierockstars.org.uk/  We are looking forward to watching the pupils perform and hope to have a great turnout for both events.

Many thanks,

Miss Karen McDowall, Principal Teacher

Ospreys Christmas Art Day

On Friday we held our annual House Christmas Art Day. This year our focus was important buildings in Paisley to help with their bid to become the UK City of Culture 2021. The Ospreys had the important task of recreating Paisley Town Hall and they did a wonderful job.

Here are our Ospreys hard at work. Please keep scrolling to see our completed display.

House Christmas Art Day

Well done to all of the houses for working so hard today during the Christmas Art Day! It was wonderful to see everyone helping each other to create amazing individual art pieces and contributing to the big house displays.

I am sure all the visitors will enjoy looking at them tomorrow at the Christmas Fair.

Here are photos of the finished displays. They each feature a Paisley landmark to support the bid for Paisley City of Culture in 2021.
