We are taking part in Scotland’s Virtual Kilt Walk for the Dreams Come True charity. On Thursday 29th April, children are asked to bring £1 donation to school. They will be asked to walk around the perimeter of the school grounds which is roughly 500 metres. Children should wear their uniform and ensure that they have suitable footwear.
Congratulations to everyone who entered this years Inspired 2021 Art competition, Renfrewshire Leisure will be showcasing all of the work that was submitted.
However, two of our pupils, Joseph Fabiani in P2/3 and Ryan Cartwright in P6/7, have received a highly commended certificate for their entries. Congratulations and well done to both of them.
Well done to this week’s star pupils! We are so proud of the fabulous work all of our pupils are doing. Keep doing your best and remember to show our school values at home.
Our teachers are so proud of the efforts of everyone in their class.
The following children have been highlighted for this week:
In Primary 3 we are celebrating Catholic Education Week this year by taking the theme ‘Jesus, The Way, The Truth and The Life’ and showing its relevance in our lives today. The children have been learning about the lives of some of our saints, remembering Pope Francis’ message that God is calling us all to be saints. Pope Francis also encourages the children to ‘Dream big’ and use their talents to their full potential. Primary 3 also learned about some of the history of the first Catholic school in Paisley and how it was funded by Paisley Abbey. The children have recorded personal challenges which they feel will make a difference in their lives and the lives of others and bring them closer to God.

We are aware that parents/ carers have many questions related to returning to school next week. Please refer to the information that was issued in June and is still available on the school website. All information given remains the same. Stationery required in school will be provided and will remain in school. Children can bring a school bag, lunch bag and water bottle which will remain with them in their classroom. Children can get a packed lunch from the dinner hall but hot meals will not be available initially. An update will be issued early next week to confirm any further arrangements, such as staggered entry/exit times. Staff are working to ensure a safe and happy return to school for all of our pupils and we look forward to seeing them all again next week.

Primary 2/3 have been busy during maths week. 30th September – 4th October. One of our activities was counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We went outside to create hopscotch games with chalk for the children to play on.
St Paul’s Primary is the only school in Renfrewshire that is part of the Cash for Kids School Challenge. Their aim is to raise as much money as possible for Cash for Kids. It’s ALL for a charity that responds to the needs of children in OUR community, aspires to enable all children to live life to the full and achieve their individual potential. The St Paul’s Primary children will be involved in an exciting challenge, fundraising for a worthy cause that will help these children and families massively with the chance of winning £2500 for their school needs. This will benefit the children of St Paul’s Primary greatly and allow for fantastic opportunities for the children.
Here is the link to their fundraising page, Your support would be greatly appreciated.
National Sandwich Week!
Did you know that there is British sandwich week? Primary 1/2 thought this was a perfect opportunity to make some sandwiches as part of their Lighthouse Keepers Lunch topic. They were very tasty indeed! This was a few weeks ago now, but look at our great efforts.
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 P7’s recently went on a residential trip to Lockerbie Manor. They had a great time there and enjoyed all of the activities.
Primary 1/2 have some very “eggciting” news to share with you! Our eggs have started to hatch and we have 10 healthy chicks! All classes will get to share in the fun and see them. P1/2 parents will get the opportunity to meet our newest class members on Monday 4th March at 2.15pm.
P3/4 have been working on an new topic about Airports. On Monday 17th December, they visited Glasgow Airport. Loganair arranged a fun filled and exciting day which included a visit to check-in and a journey through security where the children had a chance to guess what was in the bag as it was x-rayed. They then went up to airfield ops. and watched aircraft take off and land.
Next, they got a thrill as they boarded a Loganair SAAB 2000 aircraft. On-board, they chatted to two pilots in the cockpit and were served biscuits and juice by the cabin crew.
The children had a wonderful time and would like to thank the airport staff for an enjoyable day.
Have a look at our enjoyable day:
On Friday P7 attended a Remembrance Service in Braemount Care Home. Before the service the children spent some time speaking to the residents, who had written some of their war memories on poppy cards. After the service, which was conducted by Canon Eddie, the children created a Garden of Remembrance with the poppies.
On Friday, P4 released their young trout into a local stream. Accompanied by Louise from the Clyde River Foundation, they walked to the stream and released the fish.
Thank you to the staff and parent helpers who came along to support us.

Clyde in the Classroom Project
Primary 4 pupils are to be involved in an exciting project to raise brown trout from eggs in a special classroom hatchery. The Clyde in the Classroom project is a Clyde River Foundation initiative that uses the life-cycle of a native Scottish species, the brown trout, to encourage children to engage with nature and develop a positive attitude towards their local environment and its conservation. On Friday 12th January the pupils had a very interesting visit to the Glasgow Science Centre for the project launch.
They are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the eggs and hatchery to their classroom, where they will raise the trout and then release them into the environment before the Easter break.
We will keep you posted on how they are progressing.
Children who reach 5 years of age between 1 March 2018 and 28 February 2019 inclusive, should be registered for education in their catchment school on either Wednesday 10th January 2018 or Thursday 11th January 2018. Registration will take place between 1300 hrs – 1500 hrs.
Parents should produce their child’s birth certificate and 2 proofs of address.
We look forward to seeing you on the day.
On Wednesday 10th May all of the children in the school and the nursery took part in a special ‘Walk a Mile’ activity. This is part of the ‘STAR Project’s See Me’ Mental Health Campaign. All of the children had a chance to walk a mile and chat to other children that they may not have spoken to before.
It was a lovely event and great to see so many parents/carers come and join in with the walk.
