Meet The Teacher

On Monday 14th September 2015, at 7pm, parents are getting the opportunity to come to school and meet their child’s teacher. Parents will be given a brief overview of the school year and get an opportunity to see what actually happens in the classroom, should it be Jolly Phonics, Guided Reading, Tables, World Around Us themes, ICT and also get a first look at our new handwriting scheme which we are introducing this year. If you plan to attend this evening can you please ring Dawn in the office to confirm? Thanks.

Sponsored Walk

This year we are having a Sponsored Walk on Friday 2nd October at 6.00pm. This is instead of our Christmas fair. We are hoping to raise money to purchase a new Interactive Whiteboard for school and also to help subsidise a trip, for the whole school, to the theatre at Christmas time.

A sponsorship sheet has been sent home with children today.

The walk will take place in Portballintrae and on The Tramway. More details will follow.

Permission Slips

Permission slips that were attached to last week’s Wednesday letter should be filled in and returned to school before Friday 11th September 2015


AQE Registration (P7 Pupils)

AQE registration closes on Friday 11th September. Any parent who would like their child to sit AQE entrance tests must complete necessary forms. These can be found on the website

Exceptional Closure

Just a reminder that school will be closed on Monday 28th September for staff training.

Annual Book Fair
