Healthy Eating Homework
Anna has been thinking hard about promoting healthy eating in our school. Together with Georgia, she has created a homework for P.4-P.7 pupils to get some great ideas for healthy breaks and lunches. With help from the other members of School Council, she plans to create a booklet of ideas which will be a help to parents and children in the school. A great idea! Watch this space.
In October, Caleb wrote to a local charity, Charlene's Project, to ask how our school could help support their school in Uganda. After hearing back, Caleb has helped us to collect exercise books, pencils, rubbers, textbooks and other resources which will be shipped out to Uganda for Christmas. For further information on Charlene's Project please check out their website http://charlenesproject.org/
The School Council love checking our Bright Ideas boxes in the classrooms. In September a P.4 asked the School Council to organise a one off construction club- so they did! Georgia planned and organised everything for Mrs. McBride's class and set them a difficult challenge- to build a tower made from marshmallows and dry spaghetti. The tallest tower would win a prize. It was fun and it was messy! Congratulations to the winning team and well done Mrs. McBride's class for participating so enthusiastically.
Our Junior Road Safety Officers
Well done to Euan and Nathan, our Junior Road Safety Officers, who have been busy this term thinking about the safety of our children at home times. They wrote a letter to Mr. Ford asking him to encourage the boys & girls to remember their rules when being collected at 2pm and 3pm. He was very impressed with what they had to say and included this in his Friday note!
Bright Ideas Boxes
Luke, our Bright Ideas Officer, has been visiting some classes this week explaining how to use the Bright Ideas box. He's done a great job. He is recording good ideas from each class and will be back to visit very soon to give you some feedback!
