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.

Following on from our sustainability day on Friday, here are just a few snaps of our team in action. During the day we created scarves and scrunchies from pre-loved pieces of clothing as well as running a variety of awareness workshops focusing on sustainable fashion and clothing production.
It was a brilliant day and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Another huge well done to the members of Project 31 for all their efforts in organising and running the event, and to our fabulous house captains for their help and support during the day! We are very proud of you all 🙂
I would like to say a massive thank you to our Primary Five Project 31 members 👏🏼. We have worked very hard this term to learn how to up-cycle old clothes into scrunchies and scarves at our lunchtime club. In addition, they planned our event today where we had various stations including:
-plotting which country your clothes were made in on a word map to understand the carbon footprint✈📌🗺
–creating top trump cards based on your clothes👗👚👖
–creating games from re-cycling materials🎲
-a Kahoot quiz on sustainable clothing💻📊✔
-scarves and scrunching making✂🧣🧤
–trading items at our swap shop♻👕⚽🧩
Thank you to everyone who came along to enjoy this event and to our fantastic House Captains for assisting Primary Five with their activities. 🌟 I hope you are looking forward to our next Project 31 Sustainability Day! 😃
We took lots of photographs this afternoon and we hope to post over the next few days. 📸
Remember our motto…
TRADE-> MAKE -> CREATE -> BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE! 🌍♻
Have a great weekend!

We look forward to seeing you all at our Christmas Fair tomorrow between 1-3pm. We have an assortment of Christmas crafts made by the pupils as well as many other fabulous Christmas treats. Please support our school by coming along!
We are so very excited to begin our journey to becoming STEM Youth Ambassadors and spreading awareness and fun of STEM subjects around the school.
The STEM group will meet once a week on a Tuesday at lunchtime. If it is at all possible could we please ask that your child comes to school with a packed lunch each Tuesday, to allow us to have our full lunchtime to discuss all things STEM! If not do not worry we will make sure your child has enough time to eat their school dinner :).

The football team made a dramatic comeback in a 7 goal thriller against Langbank Primary yesterday. The team never gave up against a very good passing team. It was a great game to watch and we wish Langbank all the best in their remaining three games.
Poppies will be on sale from Monday 11th November. Apologies they were so late this year but the box just arrived today. P6 pupils will come around the classes once per day next week looking for a small donation for a poppy.
Thank you in advance.
