Passport to Paris

Primary 5, 6 and 7 spent a fantastic day with members of the Scottish Opera last week. After learning songs about groups of children ‘stranded’ at an airport they added actions and movements to turn it into an opera! The children performed to the rest of the school and to their parents who all dressed up like they were going to the opera! The day was a great success and STV even came to film what had happened! Well done to all the children and a big thank you to Scottish Opera for all the hard work!

Sports Day!

A very successful (and thankfully dry!) sports day was had on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th June. P5-7 took part in high jump, long jump, cricket ball throwing and 600m races on Monday. House and Vice captains picked teams to participate in each event and earn points for their houses. On Tuesday P1-7 participated in an afternoon of potted sports which culminated in the P5, 6 and 7 relay event. Pictured below are the P7 Douglas House Captain and Vice Captains who were the winning house! Well done to all the houses and children who took part – a marvellous sense of sportsmanship was felt all day!
