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:
Today is Red Nose Day and Primary 3 took part in the hunt for 51 red noses hidden all around the school. Each nose had a picture of a staff member wearing a red nose and their own special code. Primary three had great fun working together in pairs to find as many noses as they could.
Some pupils from 5B went down to the Scottish Seabird Centre today to show their pop-up books for their exhibition. Guess who they met….!! Click here to find out.
Please go to the Learning Zone then Middle Area P5 blog to reveal this year’s winners of the Stamp Quaich!
Well done to all the children who sang, danced, played instruments and recited poems on the day! You were all fantastic!
The Primary 5s now have a blog with our French Friends from Paris. Click here to get to our joint blog. They have made us two videos…one to introduce themselves and the other to wish us a Merry Christmas! Awwwww!
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.
Come to the Parents’ Zone for up to date information on all aspects of the school.
Welcome to Exc-el.org.uk.
Well here it is at last, our web log. We have given a lot of thought to what we wanted from this wonderful resource. We asked parents and pupils too. It belongs to all of us in the community and it is very interactive. We hope that everyone will find it useful and that it will give an insight into what goes on in school. Please help us make it a success, your input means a lot to us.
