October 2013

We are hoping to post on our nursery blog each month. Please check regularly for updates! The nursery children have been learning about Autumn time and we have been looking for changes outside in the gardens. Lots of us have taken part in our fundraising treasure hunt. Thank you for all your support! We are looking forward to our halloween parties and to learning about light and dark as bonfire night approaches. Please remember to look at the noticeboards daily to find out more about what your child has been doing at nursery.

Fairtrade Fortnight

For the next 2 weeks, all of the nursery rooms will be learning about Fairtrade in the context of Africa.  We will begin by looking at the Fairtrade logo so that we can identify it on everyday products.  We will also learn what fair trade means and get to sample some of the food.

Changes to Crossing Patrols – With effect as from Monday 5th December, 2011.

Following consultation with ELC Transportation Dept, Police and the school there have been changes made to the crossings to ensure we provide pupils with safe routes to school.

Margaret Higgins (previously at Launderette) will be operating at the junctions of Kellie Rd/Road into Hallhill Car Park and entrance road into school.

 Carol Mack will be moving from the Goldenstones down to the pedestrian crossing in Countess Road

 James McLennan will be moving temporarily from the pedestrian lights at Parsonspool to the top of Countess Crescent. (until the pedestriancrossing in Countess Crescent is in use again after the new building works are completed)

 We hope the addition of a lollipop person near the school entrance to the Lochend Campus will ensure pupils and parents are able to cross safely and cars are able to gain access to the Hallhill car park to drop pupils off.
