There has been a change to the Renfrewshire school holidays for 2019 – 2020 session. Please note that Friday 1st May 2020 is no longer an In-Service day.
This event is the only national event for parents with children in Catholic schools and aims to support them as the first educators of their children. The day will include activities for children, so that child care is not an obstacle to attending. We hope that the programme will be of interest to all families and will help strengthen the link between Catholic homes, the parish and their schools.
National Gathering for parents with children in Catholic Schools. Saturday 21st September 2019, 9.30-3pm, St Francis Xavier Primary School – Falkirk. Separate programme for children. Lunch will be provided. Places are free but need to be booked by phoning 0415564727
Today we held our Family Board Game session. The kids and family members had fun playing the games and were very competitive.
Thank you to everyone who attended. Board Game Club will continue again next session.
Our Coding club kids spent a great day yesterday at West College Scotland participating in a Mini Game Jam. The children were asked to design a game in a short space of time based on a given theme which they were only told at the start of the day. The theme was Space and our two teams created two very different games.
Thanks again to Dr Amanda Ford and her team for providing the opportunity for the kids.
Everyone had a great time at our Sports Day yesterday and the weather was kind to us.
Applications for free school meals and clothing grants are now open. By applying for either or both provisions now parents can ensure everything is in place ahead of the new school year.
Parents must make sure their application is received by the council no later than Friday 12 July to guarantee payment of clothing grants before the schools go back or to have free school meals from the start of term.
Those parents who have previously applied for free school meals and clothing grants will be sent a letter to their home address. If there has been no change in your family circumstances that affect any benefits you may receive, you can complete and sign the declaration form and return it to the council.
If there has been a change in your family circumstances or if you are applying for the first time, visit www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmealsandclothinggrants to complete an application form. You will also be able to read about eligibility for free school meals and school clothing grants as well as what information you need to include with your form.
Paper copies are also available for our school and from the Council’s customer service centres.
As a Fairtrade school, St Peter’s will be hosting a Fairtrade Day on Thursday 20th June. Children are invited to wear Fairtrade colours to school. (Green, blue – no football strips please).
There will be a Fairtrade Beat the Goalie event taking place with our brand new Fairtrade footballs.
There is no charge for this, although there will be a Fairtrade tuckshop available at lunchtime on this day. Items are priced from £1 to £1.20.
Many thanks for your continued support.
