November newsletter

The November Newsletter is now on the school website.

This time of year is a very busy time of year for all of us. In addition to all the usual and amazing things that take place on a daily basis in our classrooms, teachers and pupils are busy in organising a wide range of activities. Our extra-curricular sports continue to take place at various venues including Meadowbank, where the staff have been wonderful in supporting us during the rebuilding of our new school.
I never cease to be amazed at the range of talent we have in our school. In the past week alone, I have enjoyed praising pupils for their successes in a Maths problem solving competition at Glasgow Science Museum, John Byrne Awards, where, once again, we won and had a highly commended entry as well as being were overall winner. Over the past few weeks pupils have led assemblies and shared their varied achievements with others.
Our music department has been extraordinarily busy in the last few weeks as we prepare for our annual Christmas concert which is to be held in the Usher Hall on the evening of Thursday 18 December at 7 Pm. Tickets are available from the Usher Hall box office. (http://www.usherhall.co.uk). On that evening, upwards of 500 of our pupils will be joined by over 100 of the P7 children from our associated primaries. I am sure that this will be another wonderful occasion for us to come together and appreciate the musical diversity and talent we have in our school.
