Christmas Concert

On Tuesday 11th December we have the Christmas concert for Primary 5-7. 

Here are a few guidelines for what the children should wear for the concert:

  1. Children should wear blue jeans or dark trousers. This should be accompanied by a white T-shirt, Shirt or Polo Top.
  2. If the pupils have Christmas jumpers, then they may wear them.
  3. Tinsel may be worn around the neck as well as wearing a Christmas hat or woolly hat.

There are two concerts on Tuesday on at 09:30 and the other at 14:00.

Hope to see you all there! 

Christmas is coming.

Cashless Catering:

You will be aware that we are now using ‘Cashless Catering’ in school. If you wish to add credit to your child’s account, you can do so online or by cash. Ideally, we would hope that as many parents as possible use the online system but if you wish to pay by cash, dinner staff will be in the main office from 8.50 – 9.00 am each day – you will not be able to pay by cash at any other time. Children will still be provided with lunch regardless of whether there is sufficient money in the account buy you should credit money as soon as possible. Children in P1-P3 and those who qualify for free school meals do not need to add money to the account.

Below is a link to a short video which explains more about the new system and how to credit money to your child’s account.
