Tea with SLT

Yesterday we had our first Tea with SLT of the new term. Beth and Aisling from P5 came to see us, Beth has thought of excellent questions for her new topic on Scottish Firsts, exploring inventors from our own country. Aisling thought very carefully about the meaning of Nurture, one of our core values, and shared her insights with her class.

Ibrahim in P6 has been a positive and encouraging team player in PE and a supportive and helpful peer in class. Laia from P6B has made an extra special effort to write in cursive handwriting, well done.

Ahmad in Primary 4 has been working really hard to improve his reading and has been making good progress in adding by carrying numbers. From P3, Armaan has been working very hard to improve his handwriting in class with evenly sized letters staying within the lines.

Well done to all our Tea with SLT visitors this week, I hope you enjoyed your cup of juice and chocolate biscuits! Keep up the good work!

DTIM Masses Update

Our children’s masses were well attended at St Mary Magdalene’s and St John’s this weekend. It was the Rite of Illumination for Primary 3 whilst Primary 4 pupils took an active role answering questions and composing intercessions during the Mass. Some pupils also met their prayer partners after mass in the hall. Thank you to the parish sacramental team who supported the children and school staff who attended.

Christmas Lunch

What a great day in the dinner hall today celebrating our annual Christmas lunch. There was a fantastic buzz around the room as the children were singing songs, laughing and enjoying their meal. A joy to see. A big thank you to our catering team for making this event happen.
