Fish and Chip Fundraiser

Tonight we are hosting our first  Fish and Chip Fundraiser. This afternoon there has been a buzz of activity in the canteen. Some p7 pupils chose to help set up during Golden Time.   The canteen ladies are busy prepping lovely, fresh haddocks. We hope many of you can come along.

Wider Achievement

 

Wider Achievement

Last Friday saw the pupils in P4-7 have their first wider achievement group sessions. These will hopefully give children the chance to develop their skills in a variety of ways as they not only take part in activities they may already familiar with but also by trying something new.  The remaining wider achievement afternoons for P4-7 this term are November 15 and 29 and December 13.

 

The photos below show some of the pupils from the ‘Let’s Go Golfing’ group developing their skill at the Knab Golf Course.  The group is being led by Mr Leask.

P4/5 Swimming Gala

Today was the P4/5 swimming gala. The pupils all participated really well and showed off the progress they have made with their swimming this term.  All the pupils swam races and also participated in fun team races. We were all delighted with both their super swimming and excellent sporting behaviour. Big thanks to G4S for sponsoring this event

The photo below shows Thorfinn team captains with the trophy. Archie Redfern and Alfie Hall received the trophy on their teams behalf. It was a very close competition with the scores as follows:

Thorfinn 125 points

Magnus 124 points

Olaf 117 points

 

Red Nose Day

The Sports Committee organised fundraising activities for Red Nose Day today.

Red noses were on sale and they organised activities in the GP for everyone to take part in.

The P1-3 classes also enjoyed singing Put A Nose on it at their assembly.

A grand total of £590 was raised from selling noses and the activities.

A big thank you to Mrs Redfern, Sanna Aitken (Active Schools) and our sports committee members for all their hard work. Thank you to everyone who donated and took part.

Pupil Drop In

On  the first Monday of every month Mrs Wadley and pupil council members hold a drop in session. Pupils discuss what they think is going well and come with the suggestions for improvements. This month lots of pupils attended this session and suggestions are being taken forward.
