Staff and pupils at Westfield would like to thank Mr Khan for giving up some of his precious time to come and talk to us during our health event.Mr Khan gave a talk to the pupils about his job and how he came to work as a chef. He had also taken the time to prepare a curry dish for the children to sample. He spoke about the creativity involved in being a chef and the variety of flavours that can be created mixing spices.
Another successful health week event which nearly passed without the rain calling off play.Pupils, parents, careers and friends joined us today in the school grounds to have a healthy picnic lunch. The sun shone for nearly the whole picnic before we were covered by a cloud and had to retreat into the hall to finish off.Thanks to all who attended and made it such a success.
Brilliant taster workshops in Kuk Sool Won this afternoon.
Pupils from Westfield today had their sports day where they participated in house teams. The weather held out until shortly before lunch time when we gave into the rain and retreated indoors after a few of the race events. Once inside, we quickly tallied the points from both sessions to discover this years Sports Day Salver winners. Ferguson were the successful champions this year closely followed by Stuart and Liddell.

Pupils and parents at Westfield Primary enjoyed a successful Superhero Coffee Morning where monies were raised for Forth Ones Cash for Kids. Pupils from P6/7 helped Mrs Grant and members of the Parent Council to supervise the stalls available. The Tombola and tattoo transfer stalls proved very popular and the cakes were not be missed either.
There were lots of Superheros in attendance so we felt we we in safe hands all morning!!!!
Great fun was had by all and we will be sending just over £200 to the Cash for Kids Appeal!!!!
