What a Fantastic Fair!!!

Well, we had an absolutely amazing night at the Christmas Fair. It was an incredible success. The school was bursting at the seams with so many folk there. We would like to thank all the stall holders, the helpers, Santa in his grotto, the brass band, the singers and everyone else who helped to make it the success it was. Below are some pictures of this very special evening.

Leadership & Volunteering Opportunities

On Monday 6th November 2017 all year groups attended assemblies focusing on wider achievement opportunities and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Article 29 and 31 of the UN Convention focus on children being encouraged to develop their talents, potential and having the right to take part in a wide range of activities as well as learning to respect the rights of others, their environment and their culture.

To ensure that all pupils are aware of the volunteering /leadership opportunities on offer they have been collated into a booklet focusing on what is involved, what skills they could develop and the time they would need to give up. Pupils are being encouraged to apply for these opportunities. Please have a look at the booklet and encourage you child to get involved. This activities can help develop their skills for work as well as enabling them to work towards their Saltire Award and/or SQA Volunteering Skills Award.

I have attached a copy of the booklet. If you have any questions, please phone and ask to speak to Mrs Prendergast (PT Raising Achievement) or Mrs Hunter (Acting DHT).

Parental Involvement

We would like to thank all the families who completed our questionnaire in June on parental involvement. We have had a look at the results and devised an action plan, which we wanted to share with you (see below). These are all a work in progress and I will keep you updated, particularly on the development of our parentzone.
