P1/2 visited Kelvingrove Museum to see Dippy the Dinosaur as part of our Dinosaur topic. We had great fun. We got to handle real fossils and fossilised dinosaur poo!!
Our children have researched various jobs and prepared a short speech about a job that they would like to do. Each class was asked to vote for the talk they found most interesting and engaging. Our class winners presented their talks to the whole school and the overall winner was James Docherty in P6/7, who would like to be a detective. Yesterday, James had the opportunity to be our Head Teacher for the day.
I think you’ll agree that he looks very comfortable in that chair! James did a great job and very kindly announced that we could have an extra 5 minutes break!
Here are all of our class winners:

Some of our P7 girls collected money for the Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal and raised £59.26.
Some of our P7 girls ran a Nail Bar to raise money for school funds. The kids loved this and there were some beautiful designs and colours. The total raised was £46.60. Well done girls!
Our Fairtrade Coffee morning was a great success and we raised £85.10.
Thank you again for your baking donations and continued support.
On Friday 29th March, we are celebrating an international day to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Children can pay £1 (£2 per family) to come in dressed in clothes from a country of their choice. Alternatively they can wear a small symbol representing the country of their choice. For example, a thistle, piece of tartan, sombrero, a small picture of a flag using face paints. There will also be competitions held on the day and they can choose which of these they would like to enter for 50p each. The competitions are:
- A rock, paper, scissors tournament (originated in China)
- Guess how many sweets are in the jar ( invented by a Hungarian)
- Enter a drawing competition using pencils ( first created in English)
The Fundraising Group
Primary 3/4 have given presentations to their class about their dream jobs. There was a varied list of dream jobs, including: Artist, Chef, Electrician, Medical Scientist, Art Teacher and Teacher.
Our new chicks have gone to a new home. They have settled in well to their new surroundings at Mrs Ewing’s. They are very happy in their new cage looking at the drawings that some of the P1/2’s girls made for them.
Here are some other new arrivals at Mrs Ewing’s.
Fairtrade Coffee Morning
As St Peter’s is a Fairtade school we will be hosting a Fairtrade coffee morning on Friday 15th March. This will take place in the dinner hall from 9.30 – 10.30am. We would like to invite parents along to support our event. If anyone would like to donate Fairtrade baking for this we would be extremely grateful.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Our P7’s recently went on a residential trip to Lockerbie Manor. They had a great time there and enjoyed all of the activities.
