World Book Day – 02.03.17

th

We will be celebrating Word Book Day in school this year on Thursday 2 March 2017. Each class will be involved in different activities associated with reading and books throughout the day. A couple of whole school events are planned as follows:

Come to school dressed as a character from your favourite book

and

A book exchange – bring a book to school you have finished reading and swap it for a different one (books must be in good condition).

Both of these activites are optional – children do not need to take part if they do not want to.

House Coffee Mornings

thcau1go26

We are trying a new way of sharing the work our pupils are involved in, in school, with parents and as a result we would like to invite you all to a House Coffee Morning on Friday 10 March 2017, to have a coffee with your child or children and the chance to look through all their jotters and work and chat with them about their progress. We are arranging the coffee mornings as follows

Eagles – 9.00 am in the Main Hall

Otters – 9.00 am in the Gym Hall

Pine Martins – 11.00 am in the Main Hall.

We hope you can make it along at these times. If you can’t we will send the work home over the weekend but will need it back on Monday 13 March 2017. This will replace the week of Wonderful Work jotters that normally come home just before Parent’s Evenings as many people have commented that they would like to see all the work, not just a snap shot.

Staff Up-date

I am delighted to let you all know the results of our interviews for permanent teachers earlier this week. Congratulations to Miss McLean who will replace Miss Miller, a member of our permanent staff here at Currie, who has been on a secondment over the last 5 years working first for the Digital Learning Team and for the last couple of years iTeach. Miss Miller has decided not to return to teaching for the moment and recently resigned from her post creating this additional position.

We are also looking forward to welcoming Mrs Fulton to our staff to replace Mrs Callander in P1/2. Mrs Fulton currently teaches at Dean Park and will take up her post here at Currie on Monday 13 March 2017.

In addition to these two appointments the PVG checks have finally been completed for Mrs Rubatto our new Music teacher and she will take up her post after the February break working in school on Wednesdays and Fridays.
