Sports Relief 2018


Dear Parents/Guardians

We are excited to tell you that Primary 5 are raising money for Sport Relief this year!

On Friday 16th March your children can dress up as their favourite sports person. Please bring in £1 (or contribute via Parent Pay). It would be great if the children could share one or two facts about their favourite sports person!

As well as dressing up we will be doing Run a Mile on Wednesday, Thursday  and Friday. Every class will be taking part in the run, so remember your trainers. Remember to do your best – run as far as you can.

Don’t feel the need to go out and buy new clothes. Be creative with what you have! Strips are allowed but we are reminding everyone to be respectful of all favourite sports stars.

Have fun!

School lunches

Message from the Catering Department:
Dear Parent/Carer

Due to the severe weather we have been experiencing, the catering department have been unable to receive any deliveries from suppliers. Normal deliveries are not likely to return until Tuesday 6th of March.

School kitchens will be providing a meal service however due to the issues with suppliers this will vary to the advertised menu on ParentPay. Due to the change in menus, allergen information will vary to the website and we will do our upmost to ensure all usual special diets are catered for.

We are working hard to ensure kitchens are back to advertised menus as soon as possible and your support is much appreciated.

Kind regards

Catering Dept.
