Dear Parent/Carer

I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who made it along for our Meet the Teacher event last week, there was a fantastic turn out and it was so lovely to have you all back in the building and many of you for the first time! Our MacMillan coffee event raised an amazing £502!  This event was in memory of Leigh-Anne Donnelly who gave so much of herself to the school.   We keep the family very much in our prayers.

A big thank you to our parents who organised the uniform giveaway too – this was well attended and we hope to replicate this again in the near future.

Our more formal parent’s evenings will take place on 5th and 12th of October where you will get the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress.  The majority of parents voted for face to face meetings in a recent survey.  You will receive more information on this nearer the time but you may wish to save the date.

Support for families – we are all aware of how the rise in costs are causing difficulties for some families.  We are regularly given support from the church and the SVDP to help individual families but we are also not completely aware of where this need is so I would ask you to contact me on my headteacher email if your family would benefit from any sort of financial support and we can direct our support more efficiently.  This will be dealt with in a very confidential manner.  Please do not hesitate to get in contact.

Photographs – Our P1 classes had their photos taken yesterday for the annual P1 edition of the Glasgow Times. We have not been given a date of when they will be published yet, Glasgow Times have said they will be in touch nearer the time with a date and order forms.  Photographers from Tempest Photography will be in school on the 3rd and 4th of November – 3rd November for portrait photos of all pupils and the 4th of November for P1 and P7 class photos.

Next week is the national ‘Big Green Week’. One of our parents will be talking to the pupils during assembly about sustainability and what they can do to help.  On Friday 30th we will be having a non-uniform day and asking for £1 donation to support Just One Tree

Every year the school completes a Standards and Quality Report and this is attached for your perusal.

Reminder – school is closed Friday 23rd and Monday 26th September for September Weekend holiday.

Many thanks!
