Fiona O’Donnell MP visited us before Christmas to talk about her job and the work she does at Parliament. We asked her lots of informed questions about her role as an MP and we discussed democracy, human rights and the referendum on Scottish independence. Here she is pictured with our P7 Class Reps for: Health, Eco, fairtrade, Pupil Council and Rights Respecting School.
Fiona O’Donnell MP came to visit Primary 7 today to conclude our Government topic. She told us lots of information about her job and we discussed important issues in the community and what we could do about them. Fiona was very impressed that we had done so much work about the Scottish independence debate and that we are very knowledgeable about devolved and reserved matters.
We got the chance to ask lots of informed questions and then our pupil representatives had a photograph taken with her.
Next week we are visiting the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood and hope to meet more MSPs.
Fiona congratulated us on all the Rights Respecting School work we have done. Her job at Westminster involves looking at aid for developing countries and she is very keen to be involved with our RRSA work and has agreed to become an honorary member of our steering group.
Today we have been working on the order forms but we ran out of certain books and stationery such as: finger pointers, 1D posters and popular books.
Sorry for the lack of blogging in the last week we were very busy with our competitions and that sort of things.
We are starting a competition tomorow where we hide famous book characters and whichever class finds them all wins £20 for books in their class.
We are aiming to sell 500 books this week – so far we have sold 75.

Primary 2/3 have been hunting for a boat in order to make it in to a colourful planter to go near our main entrance and as you may have noticed one has appeared there!
So, we just wanted to thank Ian and Dean who kindly donated their old rowing boats to P2/3 (we didn’t expect to be so lucky and get our hands on two boats so watch this space for news of the second!).
A big thank you also goes out to all our kind volunteers who offered to help move the boats to the school. They were successfully moved at the weekend and are now waiting P2/3’s creative touch!
