P7 Cereal Boxes

Thank you to those of you who have handed in cereal boxes so far for our Christmas art on Friday. We still require a number of boxes to do this task. These can be any cardboard boxes which are big enough to make one decoration but thin enough to cut easily. Please hand these to your class teacher in the morning.

Thank you for your support!

Primary Seven Cereal Boxes

We have lots of exciting things planned for our Christmas House Day on Friday. We will be doing Art in the morning and require cereal boxes to make Christmas decorations. If you could bring in any cereal boxes from home over this week we will have plenty of cardboard to ensure that we can do this. 😆🎅🏼🎄

Thanks,

Miss Hamilton

Can you beat the system?

On Friday, we worked in teams to learn more about the role of the global food market, multinational companies, food and cash crops, and experience the challenges small scale farmers face first hand.

This included access to land, lack of resources, food price rises and changes to the climate.

The pupils also learned how the actions of governments, multinational companies and farmers themselves can make the system work better for everyone.

It was brilliant to see how much you all enjoyed yourselves as well as learning more about where your food comes from (in relation to our Food for Thought topic).

Parentpay

A reminder that Parentpay is not only for school meals and the snack bar. All payments such as school trips must be paid through this system as we are now a cashless school.

If you have not already logged on, please do so as soon as possible. If you experiencing any problems logging  on, please call the school office between 8.30am-4pm.

Thank you for your support.
