Lost Property

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Has your child lost a pair of glasses?  These are just some of the smaller items of lost property which have not been claimed.

We also have a selection of keys, purses, jewellery etc.  Please check at the office before the end of term next week, otherwise these items will be disposed of.

Gymnastics Success

Huge congratulations to Jack Finnigan, Eve Matheson and Grace Brown who competed at the Scottish Level 4 Gymnastics competition at the weekend and came 3rd overall!  What a fantastic achievement!!

Teams are usually made up of 4 gymnasts with the top 3 scores to count, allowing someone to make a mistake.  No errors from our team though!!

The school would like to send a huge thank you to Mrs Hazel Finnigan for giving up her time after school on a Wednesday afternoon to coach and train our gymnasts.  Without Mrs Finnigan, and not forgetting her willing team of volunteers, this after school club would not take place – or achieve such fabulous results.

Well done EVERYONE.

Health and Wellbeing Learning Pathways

All pupils have been sent home today with their Health and Wellbeing Learning Pathway with an example of your child’s work; child friendly questions to prompt discussion; and an accompanying letter stating that all completed Learning Pathways must be returned to the class teacher by Tuesday 20th March.

On behalf of all the staff, we hope you have a lovely weekend!
