We were delighted to find out that Springfield Primary School have become a Social Enterprise School having been awarded the ‘Start-Up Award’ by the Social Enterprise Academy. P5 worked hard throughout the year to run small businesses and take forward various projects. The aim being for their initiatives to have a social purpose and ultimately give something back to causes that are meaningful to them. In total, P5 have raised over £2,500 during this academic session which is an incredible total given the year has been rather disrupted since March. Super job P5, we’re incredibly proud of your efforts! The framed certificate will be in school for you all to see in August. Aimee Lamb has also been awarded a ‘Community Champion Award’ for her response to Covid-19 – she’s been making masks for ‘whoever needs them’. Very well done Aimee!
A HUGE well done and thank you to all of our children and wonderful staff who took part in our Sport Dress Down Day yesterday. We saw many different sport stars, from footballers to gymnasts, rugby players to cyclists. Thanks to everyone’s efforts and generous donations we managed to raise a grand total of £264.70! This money will all go towards brand new sports equipment to enhance both the delivery of P.E and our after school programme activities.
Well done to P7b for confidently delivering their class assembly on Health and Wellbeing at Springfield. It was great to hear about all of the exciting things we can look forward to throughout the year. Improving our children’s health and wellbeing is a key priority this session as we look to promote successful learning through developing social, emotional, emotional and physical wellbeing. Our school is a nurturing and caring learning environment where we promote confidence and positive relationships through kindness and mutual respect. We want all of our pupils to have knowledge that will allow them to make healthy lifestyle choices now and in the future.
It was great to see both P7 classes encouraging their buddies to exercise and get active with some Zumba after P7b’s assembly. They enjoyed taking part in some guided dance to improve their coordination, gross motor skills and body awareness. Other classes across school participated in Joe Wick’s (The Body Coach) Schools Fitness Week by tuning in for a live workout each day.
Phew! Think we all need our long weekend now. Have a safe and restful one and we’ll see you all next Wednesday.
