Easter bonnets

Primary Threes have been designing and making Easter bonnets.
We had to make our own designs. All our hats are different, and we are very pleased with the results. Take a look at our hats in the photos!
Primary threes and the staff team wish you all a very Happy Easter!

Green Flag Unveiled

This morning Law Primary unveiled its Green Flag, which signifies the school’s commitment to improving the environment through its recycling and sustainability work. The efforts of the Eco committee and Miss Beaton secured the award and we were very lucky that Miss Beaton (& Isla) were both available for the hoisting of the flag.
Today also marked the planting of 41 trees in the Middle Area playground and creation of a new plantation. We were very lucky to be joined by Struan Dalgleish who was the Law Primary student who planted the first tree of our old plantation. He was joined by the youngest girl and boy pupil as they planted the first tree of the Middle Area plantation; an eight year old oak tree. The Eco Committee will be responsible for maintaining the other 40 trees.
Below are some photographs marking today’s events:

Law Primary PTA

As well as the Formative Assessment display boards in the small dining room, the PTA will also be asking a few quick questions about the future of the PTA. Please take a few moments to consider this on Parents’ Evenings this week.

Because of the very low turn out at the AGM on Monday 1st October(only 2 parents attended), it now seems that the long standing PTA will fold. With your help, we can prevent this from happening!

The main function of the PTA as opposed to the School Board and the new School Council has been to

  • Fundraise in a variety of forms
  • Enhance the school community by organising supporting events

The school has hugely benefited in the past from resources such as library books, playground equipment and furniture (still more to come!), visiting theatre groups and Health Week event.

No PTA means no bid for grants which fund health and sport etc.

Can you please consider;

  • Do you think there should be a PTA in Law Primary?
  • If yes, are you prepared to become active in the PTA?

There will be the chance to answer these questions every night during the parents’ evenings so please feel free to ask the PTA members on duty if you have any queries about what being an active member involves.

Can we just take this opportunity to thank the former members of the PTA for their tireless efforts for the last few years. Due to the low numbers in the PTA they took a lot of the activities and fundraising on themselves and did a fantastic job. We hope that this can continue with new members. The more members who are active, the less work each person has to do!!

We look forward to speaking to you this week.
