Class photos tomorrow Thursday 11th May

Tomorrow the school photographer will take class photos. Parents will have the opportunity to buy these. There is absolutely no obligation but we do receive a small commission from sales.

You are fabulous with your school uniform every day, well done and thank you, so we know you will look lovely in the photos. We will do our best to keep folks clean and tidy for the photo.

Walk to School Week 2017 15-19th May

The 15th-19th May will be WTSW. Our two Junior Road Safety Officers have delivered the leaflets and charts to each class. During this week we are all encouraged to walk to school. Where this is not possible – everyone should try to do the next best thing, which is to park some distance from the school and stride it out for the rest of the journey. Cycling and scooting is also acceptable but parents are responsible for their child’s safety and the safety of the bikes, scooters that are brought to school. The way that children travel to school is recorded daily. We have been a most improved school in the past, winning a cheque for £50. Let’s see if we can beat our record and improve again?

SCIAF £501.91 thank you

To everybody who contributed to the school’s Lenten efforts, a very big thank you! The fantastic sum of £501.91  was raised by the school for the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund. This year’s campaign focused on supporting the crisis in East Africa. Each class decided on their own enterprising activity to raise funds for  Scotland’s Catholic Church social justice charity. Many thanks to all who donated prizes, supported sponsored events, quizzes and dress up days.

A particular word of thanks to P6 who made a tremendous effort and raised a significant amount of  this money as part of their Pope Francis Award for faith in action too. Thank you for your generosity.

Happy Campers

Miss O Regan tells me the weather was a bit chilly, just like home, but has now improved! Children slept well the first night and are having fun. Checkout our Twitter feed-the photos are there! Quiet in school without you guys.
