This week is walk to school week. Today’s figures are in…
201 children walked to school
13 children cycled to school
36 children scooted to school
11 children took the bus to school
101 children took the car to school
This means a whopping 72% of children in our school took an Eco friendly method of transport to school today. Well done to everyone!
If you do live far away from school, maybe tomorrow you could try walking some of the way by parking a little bit further away from the school entrance.
P1 and P2 enjoyed the Magic Show this afternoon in school. Tricky Ricky was as always very entertaining! Thank you to the PTA for organising this event and to all the parents who came along to help.
Our school Extension Planning Group were invited to have a look round our new extension this week to see how the work was progressing. The group enjoyed having a look round and being able to see the plans they helped develop coming to life and sitting in the digger! Thank you to Shaun the site manager for inviting the group along.
Thank you to P7 who organised and ran our sticker swap this week giving everyone a chance to swap their doubles for some they did not have yet for our school sticker books. We will organise another swapping event before the end of term to give everyone a chance to complete their books.
We said good-bye to Tam, one of our school Crossing Patrol Officers in assembly on Friday as he has decided to retire. Tam has a long history with our school as his own, now grown up, children were pupils at Riccarton Primary and he has been one of our Crossing Patrol Officers for the last 8 years. Tam is a firm favourite with many of our pupils who cross with him every day and we are sorry to see him go. We all wish him a long and happy retirement.
From the 21st to the 25th of May, the school will be celebrating Walk to School Week. If you can, we would encourage you to walk, cycle or scoot to school instead of taking the car. If you must drive, try dropping off a couple of streets away to allow you a short walk to school. On Friday the 25th, we will be having a Happy Shoesday where pupils can wear shoes that make their feet happy. Comfortable slippers, trainers, etc. are all welcome. Please do not wear heels or Heelys.
Thank you to everyone who supported our Hats4kira in school today by wearing a hat, donating money or simply for sending your best wishes to help a very sick young lady receive the medical attention she needs. As a school we raised £686.01 and Hazel one of our School Crossing Patrol Officers, who was collecting money from everyone coming to and passing school, raised £560.02. This gives a collective total of £1246.03 which is an amazing amount of money! Once more the generosity of everyone in the Currie area shows no limits – a huge thank you to everyone for your incredible generosity!
We have exciting new inflatables this year as well as traditional favourites including, face painters, spin the wheel, coconut shy, unlock the door and emoji game.
We are looking for donations for the tombola stalls and toys, books, DVDs as well as school uniform and any sports shoes including football boots and football strips.
Many Thanks for your continued support.
