P7 Children In Need Day Friday 16th November 2018

Well done to all the awesome Primary 7 children who organised and delivered a fun and inclusive Activity Day raising vital funds for Children In Need.  There were Free Activities where children could win a prize: Pin the Bandana on the Pudsey; Best Dressed Children per Stage.  There was also a Free Quiz: winners will be announced next week once the Primary 7s have had a chance to mark the answer sheets.

P7M planned a Guess Pudsey’s Birthday competition at 50p per guess.  We used a Random Date Generator to choose the date which was 30th November.  The winner was a girl in P5HW.  P7M presented her with her cuddly Pudsey backpack.

The Bake Sale organised by P7F was a massive sellout!  Not a crumb was left!  The Primary 7 children engaged with all the children and listened carefully to what their customers wanted and ensured they gave them the correct change.

P7R had queues out of the door for Face Painting.  The Artists did a superb job of turning their customers into tremendous Pudseys, Tigers, Cats, Lizards and Dragons!

Mrs Magill, Miss Fotheringham and Miss Robinson are incredibly proud of you all!

Have a wonderful weekend, have fun, be safe 🙂

P6 Wee Sleepout!

Primary 6 have decided to support the local charity Social Bite!

Social Bite are on a mission to STOP homelessness in Scotland.

The way P6 are going to support them is by doing a Wee Sleepout, sleeping in the gym hall.

The reason we chose to do a sleepout rather than anything else is because every year Social Bite do a sleep in the park to raise money. We wanted to know what it would feel like to be sleeping out of our comfort zone with no mattress, and no technology, but it won’t be as bad as being homeless but it will still be hard.
