Thank you to everyone who came along on Friday to take part in our 500 Mile Sponsored Run Challenge, either by running or by cheering everyone on! Everyone seems to have really enjoyed the event and ran really well! Well done to all the runners – we are confident that we managed to run the 500 miles we set out to do between us all, which is a fantastic achievement. P6 are going to count all the sponsor money that comes in as part of a maths topic on money, so please send this into school as soon as you can. We will let you know how much we raised when we have a final total and how we plan to spend it!
We are delighted to let everyone know that Mrs Moyes had her baby yesterday, Anna Elizabeth, a sister for Katie and Isla. Mum and baby are both doing well.
Do you use or are you interested in using out of school care? Do issues around out of school care affect your family life? Following our consultation with parents, carers, young people and out of school care providers, a report has been compiled to explore thoughts, concerns and aspirations around out of school care. If you are interested in accessing this report, please go to the following link and search for out of school care:
We have had a few problems with Pokémon cards this week in school, with cards and books going missing or getting lost, cards getting ripped etc. We realise these cards cost a lot of money and when they go missing it causes a lot of upset in school. We ask for your support in discouraging the children from bringing their cards to school. We cannot take responsibility for cards that go missing or get lost.
Next summer in Sweden there is going to be a youth football World Cup in Gothenburg. Boroughmuir Thistle, who I play for is going – there are 19 girls taking part form our team. We have to pay £950 each so we have to do a lot of fundraising! I am running a Bake Sale as part of my fund raising on Friday morning (23 September) during the Sponsored Run starting at 9.30 am. We are going to have a mixture of cakes, for example shortbread, brownies, muffins, ginger cake, top hats, truffles, priced from 10p upwards. The cakes will not conatin nuts. Hope to see you there.
We enjoyed our annual Family Beetle Drive at Currie Primary School last week organised by our PTA. As always it was a very competitive and fun evening and it was lovely to see so many people coming along to take part.
Our Sponsored 500 Mile Run is now just a week away! We hope your training and fund raising is going well. Every family should have received a sponsor sheet – if you haven’t please let us know and we will send one home! We hope you are able to come along and run with your child or children on the day or cheer everyone along if you don’t feel like running!
Our school role is currently 426 so the logistics of everyone running at the same time around the pitch are impossible. Instead we are planning to run as follows:
9.00 am – P1 and P2
9.30 am – P3 and P4
10.00 am – P5 and P6
11.00 am – P7
The Nursery are doing a separate event on Thursday and have shared this information with Nursery parents.
Sponsor money should be sent into school by Friday 30 September 2016. The money raised will be spent on developing our school grounds and on more iPads for our classes. We will of course share the developments of these 2 areas throughout the year as progress with them is made.
