Congratulations to all the children who were awarded an achievement certificate this month.
Over the last few weeks the school has been collecting items for the Blythswood Shoebox appeal. The shoeboxes are filled with various items and wrapped in Christmas paper. They are then sent to needy people in various parts of the world. Many thanks to everyone who donated something. Also a huge thanks to Muriel (our crossing patrol person), Elaine Houliston (playground supervisor), Katrina Corbett, Joy MacLeod, Ros Oliver-Jones and Tricia Torrance (parents and former parents) who packed and wrapped the boxes.
Members of the Pupil Council helped to load the lorry on ‘Children in Need’ day (hence the modes of dress!!!)
M&M Theatre company visited the school recently to perform ‘Pinocchio’. Jack’s review is attached along with some photos. You will notice that there are two extra performers, Miss Orwin and Mr Mackay, the younger.
Primary 6 organised a very successful pupil council election on Thursday 18th September. They all carried out their duties most effectively. Special thanks to their teacher, Mr. Mackay (the younger!) who ensured that all the children knew what was expected.This was an excellent way to involve the children in the democratic process.
The successful candidates are as follows:
P2 Jonah Edwards Melissa Nimmons
P2/3 (Miss Macleod) Alexander Campbell Orlagh McNamara
P2/3 (Mrs Jack) Kate MacAulay Sean Fraser
P3 Milly Thompson Riley Anderson
P4 Ciara Simpson Lewis Fraser
P5 Fern Mohan Lewis Mackenzie
P6 Emily Vass Isaac Johnson
P7 Taylor Anderson Taylor Rooney
Sonia, our Crossing Patrol Person on Scotsburn Road, has taken ill and the doctor has signed her off for all of next week. Unfortunately I have no replacement so there will not be a Crossing Patrol Person on duty at any time next week on Scotsburn Road.
My apologies for any inconvenience that this might cause.
We wish Sonia a speedy recovery.
