Flying High with Reading

We have all been impressed with the creative and imaginative solutions to the latest creativity challenge. I think the library is going to look fantastic when the display is finished.

School Bank Urgent!

Our school bank will have to close if we cannot secure some more parent volunteers for after the Easter Break. If you are able to give up some time, once a week, this would enable us to keep the bank running. The school bank is an excellent way to support your children to budget and save. Pupils have started saving in P5 to pay for the residential trip in Primary 7.

If you are interested in keeping the school bank operating please contact the school.

Celtic Connections 25th Anniversary Concert

Our P4 – P7s enjoyed a trip to the Glasgow Concert Hall today. This was the opening  concert and was a celebration of 25 years of the Celtic Connections Festival. Now well ingrained into Glasgow’s cultural life, the festival has gone from strength to strength. This morning’s concert  featured performers that have helped make the Festival what is, including Orkney’s Saltfishforty and the Highland quintet, The Elephant Sessions. The pupils enjoyed dancing to the music.

Article 31
All children and young people have a right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of activities.

Walk Once a Week – WOW – Campaign

A happy New Year to all our families and as we start the New Year our JRSOs have launched a new initiative to encourage pupils to actively travel to school at least once a week. To launch the WOW campaign we had a special visit from Strider the Mascot and Rebecca from Living Streets to tell us about the project. Each month if a pupil meets the target for walking, scooting, cycling or park and striding they will receive a special badge – we hope lots of pupils will earn all 12. Further information for parents will be sent out in a letter. Here are some pictures of Strider with our JRSOs.

Article 24
All children and young people have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help them stay alive, healthy and safe.
