Sticker Book

Sticker book

The photographs have now all been taken for our sticker book and look fantastic. I am sure everyone will be delighted with them! P7 have taken on the job of looking for people to advertise in our sticker book which will help towards the cost of printing the stickers. The more advertising P7 can sell for our book the more profit our school will make from the sale of the stickers – all profits will go towards our playground developments.

If you run your own business or work for a company / business or have any contacts with anyone that would be interested in advertising in our sticker book, we would love to hear from you or them. Advertising space starts at £85 and there are various price options from there depending on the size of advert. We have information fliers available in school that we can send out to you or your contacts which will give you more details. Please let us know if you would like one. We hope to hear from you soon!!

Bikes and scooters in the playground.

Please can you remind your child / children not to ride round the playground on their bikes and scooters at the beginning and end of the school day. The playground is very busy at these times and one of our older boys almost knocked a little girl over riding his bike down the hill earlier this week at home time.

Children should get off their bikes at the gate in the morning and wheel them to the bike rack in the playground. At the end of the day the children are asked to collect their bikes and scooters and wheel them up the path before getting on them at the gate. We spoke to all the children about this in assembly this week and would appreciate your help to reinforce this message at home as it is not always for staff to be in the playground at the end of the day.

Sticker book

As you know we have a new exciting activity for your kids this year ~ the school Sticker Books!!!

The P7 pupils will be coordinating this fund raising enterprise for us throughout the year.

Our photographer has already taken pictures of your child on Monday & Tuesday. Anyone who didn’t get their photo taken will have another chance on Sept 22nd. He has taken great care to ensure the photos are of the best quality possible.

Here is some more information on the sticker books:

  • These pictures will be converted into paper stickers which can then be collected for filling the sticker books.
  • There will be one book for Nursery, P1, P2 and P3 and a second book for P4, P5, P6 and P7. Each class, Nursery to P7 will have a section of the album and the children will be able to collect the stickers to complete their album or their section of the album.
  • You will get a free sticker book with any order of school photographs or you will have the opportunity to purchase a sticker book if you are not purchasing school photos this year.
  • Each sticker pack will contain 5 random stickers for and will cost 50p. The sticker packs will only contain stickers for the book your child is collecting. Sticker packs will also be used as rewards in the school where children can ‘win’ sticker books for good behaviour etc. The stickers
  • If you want a particular sticker you can also order these individually.
  • There are a few examples of these types of sticker books in school if you would like to get an idea of what our sticker book will be like.
  • Also as communicated previously only the children’s first names will appear in the sticker album so everyone knows where to sticker the stickers. No other personal details will be included.

If you would like to find out more about our school sticker book or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact school.

Expansion of Free Early Learning and Childcare in Scotland

 

National survey on the expansion of free early learning and childcare in Scotland

 As you’ll be aware the Scottish Government is planning to nearly double the hours of free early learning and childcare by 2020. Because the views of parents and carers are crucial for the success of this expansion, the Government has commissioned independent researchers to undertake a survey of parents. It is now asking for your help in sharing the survey link (www.bit.ly/elc-survey) with as many parents of 0-5 year old children in your community as possible.

All parents taking part will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw and have the chance to win one of 10 x GBP100 cash prizes.

The survey is carried out for the Scottish Government by Craigforth, an independent research company. If you have any questions about this survey please send a message to: survey@craigforth.co.uk

P7 at Dukeshouse Wood

IMAG0991 (2)

We are all well at camp! We have had a couple of action packed days with everyone taking part in a variety of activities. Yesterday saw us all starting on some of the climbing challenges with almost everyone making it to the top of the Leap of Faith and everyone working really well on Jacob’s Ladder to get their teams as high as they could – even Miss Nicholson and Mr Mackenzie! This morning saw the first of our groups on the 3G swing, something everyone has been really looking forward to! The weather is good, the food has been great and the dorms are being kept pretty tidy!! It was around 11.20 pm last night when the last dorm fell silent…and 6.45 am this morning before the first of the boys dorms woke….the girls all had to be woken up!
