We had a great day on Friday 19th May raising money for the Beatson Cancer Charity. We had a visit from Amy who came and speak about what our donations will go towards and we had a special visit from Bella the Beatson Bee who came to say hello!
Everyone took part in a walk during the day and some parents came along to participate too. On Saturday 20th May, the staff at West and Maxwellton Nursery walked 10.1 miles from our school to the Beatson in Glasgow.
It was a great couple of days and our fundraising is sitting at an amazing £4,45! There is still time to donate through our Justgiving page www.justgiving.com/westieswalk4beatson

On Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th March the photographer from Tempest is coming to the school to take photographs for all the Primary classes. P1 and P7 will have class, individual and family photographs taken and P2 – P6 will have individual and family photographs taken. If you would like a family photograph please send a letter to your older child’s class teacher.
I would ask that the children wear a white shirt and school tie on these days if at all possible.
We have come to the end of another block of our Reading Café. The boys and girls in P3 and P4 with their siblings have enjoyed the combination of reading and cooking. They have especially enjoyed inviting an adult along to share this experience with them.
There will be a reading café for P3 and P4 children and accompanying adults on a Wednesday after school in the school library and technology room from 3pm to 4.15pm.
During this time children and adults will explore different books and authors and enjoy cooking together. The café is all about having fun together through reading for pleasure, sharing an activity and enjoying the goodies together at the end.
The café will be run in 4 week blocks starting on 1st February. The blocks will be in February, March and May. Children must attend with an adult but this does not need to be a parent.
Please return the letter the children have received if you would like to attend with your child before Wednesday 25th January.
