The Garden Plate Project – School club/sessions

We are hoping to start an after school club/session in our Outdoor Classroom/Garden area next to In Bloom.

Worshops are being led by Sam Hawthorne from Roots & Fruits and the next one will be held tomorrow, Thursday 3rd July from 3.20pm – 4.20pm.    If your children wish  to attend, they must have an adult with them.  Green fingers not required!

Hopefully some of the families might have some time over the summer holidays that they could commit to helping with watering and weeding, etc. but this could be discussed with Sam if you are able to attend tomorrow night.  Also, the group could continue into the start of next session – further details will be provided in due course.

P7 Party

The Primary 7 Leaver’s Party will be held in the Assembly Hall on Wednesday 2nd July 2014.  Pupils are invited to arrive from 6.30pm and the party will end at 8.45pm.

There is no set dress code for the party – pupils are welcome to dress up if they wish to but this is not a requirement and we must stress that it is not our intention for parents to go to any expense hiring or buying new clothing.  In the past, some girls have chosen to wear their gala dresses and some boys have worn kilts if they already have them but we have also had an equal number attend in jeans or other casual dress.  The aim is to include everybody and make all pupils feel welcome, irrespective of what they choose to wear.

To tie in with our Bugsy Malone musical, the hall will be decorated in an American, Hollywood theme.

Please make sure you know how you are expected to travel home – will you walk or are you being collected?
