Family Fit Fun

If anyone can think of a better name for the new club we have on Wednesday mornings before school . . . . . .  please let us know. Set up and run by the parent partnership the new club is a great way to start your day. Every Wednesday from 8am – 8:30am we’ll have some sporty games and fun in the gym hall followed by some healthy breakfast and snacks in the dining hall before we start school. It’s a family club so kids must come with a parent or carer.

For the next few weeks we’ve got Colin, Eric and Kirsty coming in to play some games with us and do a wee bit of dancing. This week we kicked off with the winter Olympics. Featuring curling (Scotland is very good at curling), the Biathlon and the Luge.

Please come and join us next week.

1A are Fast as Lightening!

Today p1a and Miss Read took part in a Karate taster session put on by one of our local clubs. Chris and his dad Dave showed us some fantastic moves and we even learned some of the words.


We had so much fun! Each child took home a leaflet to join the club and have an Active Schools sign up sheet in their bags from yesterday. The first four classes are free! Miss Read can confirm that EVERYONE in p1a thoroughly enjoyed themselves when trying out Karate.


Great work everyone and thank you so much to Chris and Dave!

Let’s Dance Showcase!

On the evening of Thursday 11th May at 6:30pm the school will be hosting a dance showcase. As well as the Friday afternoon Hip Hop class, Jane’s Wednesday Gymnastic classes and some High School performers from Live It Dance studios it will also be an opportunity for other children who love to dance to perform in front of an audience.

We are expecting a high number of children who may wish to take part on the 11th May and with a limited amount of time on the night, those children or groups who would like to take part in the showcase will have to audition for a place.

• The auditions will take place on Friday 21st April at 11:00am.
• No audition dance should last longer than 2 minutes.
• Children must come with their music to the audition on CD or as an MP3 on a music device. No Streaming, searching or buffering.
• Any children or groups who wish to take part in the showcase must complete the form below and hand it in to Mr Mowbray by Wednesday 19th April

The audition piece must be well rehearsed and practiced. Although we would like to give everyone 2 minutes to audition, this time may be cut if we have a lot of people wishing to audition.
Some acts will not get through the audition and will not be able to perform at the Showcase. Not passing an audition can be upsetting. Please do not put yourself or your child forward for the audition if you think they are not ready to take part in the process.

Tickets for the showcase will be £1 or £3 for a family. More information about buying tickets will follow shortly.

If you would like to audition please ask Mr Mowbray for a form.

Good Luck & Get Practicing!
