We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Farmers’ Market this Saturday from 10am – 12pm
Plans are well under way for our Farmers’ Market. This will be held in the play ground at the back of the school from 10 – 12 noon on Saturday 15th June. A mixture of 20 stalls will be present, selling locally produced goods and produce. Tea, coffee, hot dogs and ice -cream will be available. There will be some games available for the children.Please note that there will be no access to the car park and we ask you to walk to the event. The gates at the back of the school will be open.
We hope the sun shines for us. If it were to rain, the market will be in the school.
Despite the weather being on the chilly side, Sports’ Day was a fantastic success. Thank you to all the parents and carers who came along to support the children and cheer them along. Also, a huge thank you to Mrs McKendrick and Mrs Lawrie for organising the event and to all the staff for their ongoing support both in the preparations and on the day.
Sports are scheduled to start at 9.30am on Monday 10th June. Pupils are reminded to come to school in their sports kit and with a water bottle. It would be helpful if sun protection cream was applied before leaving home as we are hoping that this lovely sunny weather continues!
The Summit was a huge success. Thank you to all the schools that came along and contributed. I think we all picked up some brilliant ideas and it was wonderful to see how enthusiastic the pupils are about the projects they have going on in their schools.
The Learning for Sustainability Summit is taking place on Thursday 30th May in the hall. We have invited all the schools in the area to join us and so far we have quite a few attending which is great. We are really looking forward to hearing what others schools have been up to in areas such as Eco, Global Citizenship, Outdoor learning and Fair Trade.
Just a reminder for your diaries that Sports’ Day for P1 – P7 will be held on Monday 10th June 2013 at 9.30am. Please watch out for a letter that we will be sending home next week with more details.
A group of primary 6 and 7 boys have been working with Mr Santer (p6/7 teacher) and songwriter Paul Brunton to write and record their own rap which you can hear by following the link below. Keep your eyes peeled for their first music video in the coming weeks. Move aside 50 Cent… jog on Eminem!!! JJ Beats are the new boys in town!
