The Primary 5 to 7 children took part in a number of World of Work Events.
Families and friends of the School supported the P4 to P7 World of Work Speed Date. The children learned about careers in a range of services and industries. They met with marketing, sales, human resources personnel from the world of business, a secondary teacher, police officers, a lecturer and scientist, two company directors, a radiographer, a podiatrist and a financial advisor. They received information on the work of the British Heart Foundation and Police Scotland’s ‘No Knives, Better Lives’ campaign. They also got to try a new fruit juice, try on a police uniform and dress like a radiographer.
Primary 1 to Primary 7 completed a number of activities relating to their future careers. The P7s completed Animal Me from the Developing Scotland’s Workforce website.
The Show Club gave three fantastic performances, with the help of P4 to P7 at Campsie Memorial Hall.
The performances were sell-outs and raised £850 towards School Funds. This has gone towards paying for the new projector, sound system and screen for the hall. Everyone who came along to our performances enjoyed the show very much and there were standing ovations for our wonderful actors and singers. A big thank you goes out to our parents and carers who supported our talented young people in learning their lines and supporting their performances.
The Head Teacher would like to thank the Show Club teachers, staff and parent helpers and the Campsie Memorial Hall for supporting this spectacular event. Well done Show Club!
The Primary 1 to Primary 3 children performed a 'Little Angel Gets Her Wings' to family and friends at the Campsie Memorial Hall and the audience loved learning about the acts of kindness which helped Little Angel get her wings
The whole school took part in a Scottish Poetry and Song Competition. Each class performed their poem, song and a dance at our Scottish Concert. Parents then joined each class at a look in and learn event.
Science Week took place from the 8 to 18 March 2019. The theme this year was ‘Journeys’. The children had a fantastic week learning new skills and learning about the natural world and the world of the future.
We would like to thank the University of Glasgow, Computer Xplorer, Generation Science and Sciencer Girl for supporting us. Staff from these companies provided workshops and we were pleased to welcome all our visitors. Ineos also provided the school with a grant of £300 towards the cost of bringing Computer Xplorers into P4 and P4/5 to run programming workshops for the children.
We had our annual Science Week Open Day on the 15 March 2019 and we were delighted once again with the response from our parents who supported us at our event.
Here are some photographs of Science Week.
