What a busy assembly we had today celebrating success! We recognised our pupils who successfully completed the library reading challenge and were given a glimpse into the life of the Primary 7 classroom. We also presented our value awards, this week all for determination; Raya for working hard in class and always doing her best, Ailsa for showing determination in her lovely writing, Lucas for sharing in front of the class for the first time and for showing others what a good friend looks like, Amber for showing super concentration in completing her tasks, Liam for showing determination in all his work, especially reading and writing, Nolan for focusing on all his tasks and taking care in the presentation of his work and Hayden for showing great determination in his reading and writing. Congratulations and well done to all of you!
The pupils were given a tour of the garden and were in awe of the beautiful flowers. Many pupils had a taste of some of the tasty vegetables which were ready for selling.
At our success assembly on Tuesday, we were delighted to give out our Value Awards, Rachel received an award for showing a respectful attitude toward her friends and teachers, Daniel received an award for showing respect and kindness in the class, Elana received an award for showing respect to teachers and others in the school by listening and encouraging others around her to follow directions, Rowan received an award for his super attitude and determination towards reading, Megan received an award for always being determined to do her best and Eilidh received an award for showing respect to the teachers and others by listening and following instructions. Well done to you all!
Due to the early dismissal on a Friday, the canteen are going to trial a grab and go lunch. Pupils will still eat in the canteen but also have the option to take their lunch away with them before heading home. This will be on a trial basis for the next few weeks. For this Friday the option will be a filled roll with a drink, fruit and homebake.
Children will be given options on Friday morning of a filling for their roll.
