There has recently been a lot of information in the media and on social media about ‘MOMO’. Please click on the link below or from the side bar on the right for parental information on a range of online and app safety including MOMO, Fortnite and Snapchat
We have been informed by our campus cop that there have been a number of incidents recently at schools in the local area whereby pupils have been using the internet/social media to communicate indecently with other pupils, and even adults unknown to them. Pupils, some of whom are of mid Primary School age, are downloading various apps such as Snaphat, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, Whatsapp, Kik and Holla to name a few. Some of the content is sexualised in nature, which is gravely concerning and places the pupils at risk of real harm. Our Campus Officer, PC Blackmore, has already been in schools to talk to classes about keeping themselves safe online. He will be continuing with this in the coming weeks. It is imperative however, that parents are aware of these issues and keep a close eye on their child’s use of devices capable of accessing the internet and limit/remove their use of such apps. We would ask that parents also speak with their child about online safety and the dangers of communicating with strangers online. PC Blackmore is happy to help with any advice should you require any.
Primary 7 are very excited to be learning with pupils from Southcraig School to experience inclusive Sherborne Developmental Movement Therapy. Sherborne is based on natural movement play activities inspired by the philosophy and Theory of Human Movement by Rudolf Laban. It offers all participants the inclusive opportunity to develop body and spatial awareness skills. As the children work through the Sherborne Movements each week they will learn to build positive relationships through demonstrating sensitivity as a responsible partner, an awareness of communicating and working together and a shared enjoyment of the movement and play.
Almost all of our P6 and P7 classes took part in the Active Sports cross country competition at Rozelle Park today. The pupils really challenged themselves not just to beat own personal bests but also to finish the course.
The P7s, Miss Gunning and Mr Hardy are busy at Dolphin House this week – you can follow their adventures on the blog. The link is on the Class and School Blog page or click here.
We had a great afternoon last Friday – we hope you managed to come along to our Sports Day. The weather was on our side and we managed to complete all the races. It was super to see such good sporting attitudes and all the pupils trying their best.
As part of our work within Health and Wellbeing, pupils across the school took part in the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ competition. The theme of the creative competition was ‘Scotland for All’. We are pleased to announce that one of our Primary 1 pupils is a finalist. All the P1s will enjoy a trip up to Hampden to the award ceremony and get a tour of the stadium too.
