Many of you will know what great fun a Ceilidh Kids Event is but for those of you who don’t it is that magical combination of Scots Music, dancing called by Caroline and reeled by us! Fun for all the family – and brilliant exercise too!

Please could you advertise this event round your classes and encourage everyone to support the Parent Council event for p1-3!

It would also be good if you could arrange for 1 person from each class to meet Jay in the staffroom after drop off on Tuesday 21st February to help us put the final arrangements in place – all help welcome and all ideas gratefully received! We will need volunteers on the day to help serve the drink and snack at the break. Your help and support are much appreciated!

Two days and counting to get involved and vote Sciennes for £5,000

Our school has until midday this Wednesday 30 November to get enough support by voting to win £5,000 from the One Family Foundation. (There was another competition two weeks ago from Aviva, but this is a different vote).

Just now we don’t have enough votes.

If more people don’t go online and support us by voting for Sciennes, our pupils and school are going to miss out on £5,000 to support their learning.

It’s free to vote. You can register or log in using your email details, or Facebook or twitter account. You then just vote for our project.

If you have not voted already, please get involved and vote now for Sciennes at www.sciennes.tech

Thank you for supporting our pupils and school. We will find out in mid December if we have had enough votes to win the money.

A Huge thank you to everyone for helping with the organising, leading their teams, volunteering, donating items and foods, coming out in huge support and for being so generous to make the Sciennes International Winter Fair a tremendous success. It was wonderful to meet many of you for the first time and see some of you again at the fair. We hope that you and yours have really enjoyed the fair. We have made nearly £6630 from the winter fair and we could not have done it without you! Thank you!
