Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a lovely holiday. The children are back into the routines of school and are doing very well getting to grips with the revised behaviour policy. Primary two has earned 3 gold stars this week. This is when other adults in the school have noticed how well they are following the school rules.
The museum visit was a big success and I would like to let you know that a visitor to the museum was most impressed by the behaviour of the whole class. They did an excellent job of representing the school and taking responsibility for their own behaviour. Well done primary 2 I was very proud of you! I would also like to say thank you to the volunteer adults who came with us on the visit. You made the experience an enjoyable one for everyone with all your hard work.
