Health Week Information

HEALTH WEEK FOCUS- THE FOUR PARALYMPIC VALUES: 

  DETERMINATION- COURAGE- EQUALITY- INSPIRATION

Next week, week beginning 20th August will be our annual Health Week for Primary 2-7. Primary 1 will have their own Health Week later in the year once they have settled into school. 

 The focus for this year’s Health Week is the Paralympics and we encourage you to help your child find out a bit about the lives of some of the Paralympians. Pupils will experience a wide range of activities and should come to school each day wearing their outdoor PE kit. They will also require an indoor PE kit.
  • 4A will start their swimming lessons on Tuesday and will need swimming kit with them every Tuesday until 30th October.
  • Primary 5 will need their bikes for Ready Steady Bike on Thursdays for the next 3 weeks. Primary 5 should not cycle to school without an adult. If no adult is available then they should walk the bike to and from school.
  • Primary 6’s will need their bikes as follows:
Mondays 6A, Tuesdays 6B and Wednesdays 6C for the next 2 weeks.
Please note that pupils are not permitted to cycle to school unaccompanied until they have completed their cycle proficiency test in P6. The test does not mean they are safe on their bike but shows that they have had experience of the course. It is up to you as parents to make the decision as to whether you feel your child can ride a bike in a safe and responsible manner.
 
There should be no cycling within the school grounds at any time. Bikes must be dismounted outside the gates and walked.
 
  • Primary 7 will be going out to the bowling club on Monday and the Children’s Golf Club on Thursday. Please bring one golf club and a ball, a 6 or 7 iron is best. Do not go out and buy anything as we will share what comes in.

 We do desperately need parent helpers for these two events to take place.

 
We continue to encourage healthy eating including healthy snacks. We would like children to have a healthy snack Mondays to Thursdays with a treat if you wish on a Friday.
 
We would like to thank the clubs and parents who are giving their time free of charge during health week as without them we would not have a Health Week.
