Letter from Director of Children’s Services

Sent on behalf of Steven Quinn, Director of Children’s Services

Good evening,

First of all, my apologies for sending this information so near to the holidays. Unfortunately, it is only now that the programme has been confirmed.

The Renfrewshire Get into Summer programme starts on Monday 28 June.

A wide range of fun-filled, free activities will be available across Renfrewshire for children and young people aged 5 to 25 to enjoy as part of the government funded summer programme.

The programme is designed to improve the wellbeing of children, young people and families, and has been organised by the Council’s Community Learning and Development service and Renfrewshire Leisure Limited.

The council will be raising awareness of the programme through its social media channels. A Facebook event to promote it was set up on the council’s page this morning and posts about the programme will be published on its Facebook and Twitter accounts at 9pm tonight.

If your school has a social media account, it would be greatly appreciated if you could share these posts and event on it this week. However, and I stress, only if you have the time available to do so.

More information about the programme can be found at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/get-into-summer and we will be sending a text to all parents with a link to this information.

A list of local activities is available on the Young Scot (https://young.scot/renfrewshire) and Renfrewshire Leisure websites.

Regards

 

Steven

Another treat for pupils

Children in the nursery and whole school will enjoy a virtual school show by ‘The McDougalls’ theatre company. The link will be given to us to view during the last week of school. We have purchased this with money from the funds raised during Mental Health Week – another great treat for pupils! Enjoy!

St Peter’s Health Week

During the week beginning 14th June, children will participate in activities linked to Health and Wellbeing. They will learn about healthy lifestyles and take part in P.E and dance lessons. They will learn about the importance of good mental health and will take part in mindfulness lessons. Children will study relationships during ‘God’s Loving Plan’ lessons, which are differentiated for each primary. This is also Walk to School Week and we ask that you encourage your children, where possible to walk/cycle/scooter to school. Classes will have sports days on the grass area in our playground throughout this week. We hope that your child has lots of fun!

Mental Health Fun Day

From the generous proceeds raised from our mental health awareness activities, the nursery and each class will be treated to a magician show and a silent disco on Friday 11th June.  Uniform should be worn as normal on this day.  Thank you

Cycling For P7

On Tuesday 15th June, PC Bruce Heron will be here to cycle along with the Primary 7s on-road. We have had some lovely comments from members of the community, who have seen our Primary 7 children cycling. PC Bruce would like to take some photographs next week. If you do not want your child photographed, can you please let the school office know as soon as possible? Many thanks.
