House Morning

We held our first House Morning of the year today.

The children worked together in their House groups across stages, taking part in a range of activities. It was lovely to see so many people wearing house colours too!

Infant classes were thinking about adults in our school community, encouraging people to pick up their litter, and using our local environment to provide resources for artwork.

Further up the school, pupils were focusing on teamwork- working together to solve problems and collaborate successfully.

We had lots of fun, and were able to share with each other what we had been learning at a whole school assembly.

Well done everyone!

Have a lovely October break, we’ll see you on Tuesday 24th October!

Lagganlia

Lagganlia-Logo

P7 returned from their annual excursion to Lagganlia Outdoor Education Centre on Friday.

Based near Aviemore, the excursion allowed our pupils to experience a range of exciting and challenging outdoor experiences, including-

  • Archery
  • Canoeing
  • Kayaking
  • Mountain Biking
  • Hill Walking
  • Gorge Walking
  • Skiing
  • Bush Craft
  • Tree Climbing

Our children had an amazing time, and developed independence and a range of life and outdoor skills.

The children had to push themselves to be their best, sometimes when they were lacking confidence in certain challenges. However, everyone achieved at least one moment of success where they overcame doubts and fears to conquer a challenge. Individual prizes were awarded to one pupil from each activity group, who showed a particularly supportive and encouraging attitude towards others, or particular determination and effort to succeed. Those pupils were Aidan Edgcombe, Holly Hou, Megan Wright and Aadi Chouhan.

Below are a selection of photos and videos from our week away. We hope you enjoy them. Huge thanks must also go to the members of staff who gave their time to accompany and look after the pupils while they were away. It wouldn’t be possible without you!

Well done to all!

JRSO Launch Event

JRSO

Our P6 Junior Road Safety Officers attended a launch event at the City Chambers this week. Jedrzej and Claire were accompanied by Mr Horan, and had a brilliant time. They both took part in some excellent workshops and even managed a sneaky photo with Ziggy and Reducer! It was a great day and both JRSOs came back bursting with ideas. They have already carried out one of their roles, a survey about how pupils travel to school callled ‘Hands Up Scotland.’

We look forward to more fun events and information over the course of the year! Well done to both our JRSOs!

P5 Rugby Festival

Mrs Ramm took a team of P5 pupils to a rugby festival at Murrayfield stadium this week.

Our team had one win and one loss in the  first round, which put us through to the Plate competition. We then won one, lost one and drew one.

All the children had a great time, and were good ambassadors for our school!

Well done team, and thanks Mrs Ramm!
