As we settle into this Autumn term, having welcomed our new pupils and their families to our community, we are now setting our sights on this coming Wednesday's event launch of our 'Keeping Fit and Healthy' campaign, which is our school's exciting focus for this year. Did you know that this same date is National Fitness Day?! How apt! We are looking forward to seeing the whole school come together to complete a 30 minute walk, cycle or scoot around our local area of Bonny Crescent. (Please note all bikes/ scooters will be locked in the ball court for safe-keeping.) If our families and carers are available when it's your class's turn, we would love to see you join in! There will be photos to follow...
We hope those of you that took up our school's offer of signing up for a free I-card that is valid until the end of November are utilising all of the activities available - this is a great step towards building fun FREE activities into your daily lives. Our staff are getting to know the heathland area around our school very well when they go for their 30 minute walk/ jog on Wednesday afternoon each week.
Elsewhere in school, our school clubs have started with much enthusiasm - our running club had a tough interval session last week, our netball club has been limbering up for the new season and the sounds emanating from our music room are evidence that our talented musicians are already preparing for an exciting term ahead! Will we see some of them perform during our Christmas shows...watch this space!
Our new School Council have held their first meeting, received their School Council Notebooks and received their badges at the same time as our new IT Ambassadors in our special School Council and IT Ambassadors Assembly. We look forward to seeing how both clubs progress this year. (Pssst! We think the School Council are looking into how our lovely new playground is likely to be painted...go and give them your ideas asap!
In 'other news'..
We are looking forward to our pop-up café event this coming Friday in aid Of Macmillan. Last year saw gorgeous weather and hence, a great turn out from our local community - fingers crossed we have a warm, dry day this year!
Our Harvest Festival is on the horizon too, (October 16th) and so if you are able to donate any items that are then given to FIND (Families in Need) who in turn help families within our local area, then we are, as always, ever grateful.
