Welcome back - Term 3 (added 19.04.16) New!
We hope everyone had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Already we come back to school into term 3. Where has the year gone?! Although a short term, it is a very busy one with lots of activities in class planned.
Primary 7 pupils begin the term with their annual enterprising Toy Sale which takes place this Friday 22 April. The pupils are raising funds to support their Leavers' Party which will take place in June. Pupils will have the opportunity to visit the toy sale with the option of buying donated toys, games, books etc, or taking part in some of the fun activities the children of Room 14 have organised. Please remember this is optional.
If you have any donations of unwated toys, games, books, the pupils of Room 14 would greatly appreciate them. Donations can come into school up until Thursday.
Primary 5 pupils will also be attending the World of Work – Hospitality Explorers Programme Launch Event on Wednesday 20 April in Stonelaw High School. This event is in partnership with Clyde Gateway and will introduce children to the hospitality sector. We are sure the children will have a fantastic time. Apologies for the late communication as we received news of this during our Spring Break.
Parents' Evening - Wednesday 23 March 2016 (added 22.03.16)
We are looking forward to meeting our Parents/Carers for our second Parents' Evening of the session.
