Litter – Our Pollution Revolution!

We are starting to notice that around the school the amount of litter is increasing. The Janitor is being left to pick up after us.

We need to take responsibility for disposing of our own litter and use the bins (including recycling). We are looking at relocating some of the bins to make sure coverage of all the playgrounds is improved but YOU can help by using the bins provided or reduce the amount of litter by taking reusable plastic tubs and water bottles for snacks.

The litter is always worse on Friday after Fairtrade tuck shop and the wrappers are disposed of on the ground so we are proposing that a bin is located next to Fairtrade steps on a Friday.

Let your Eco Rep know if you have any other suggestions for helping lead our pollution revolution!

PLEASE HELP US TO REDUCE OUR LITTER AND USE THE BINS – WE ALL NEED TO HELP LOOK AFTER THE SCHOOL AND OUR LITTLE PART OF THE PLANET!

Second hand bike sale

Do you have an old children’s bicycle that you would like to sell ?

Sell it through the ‘BIKE SHED’ at the Parent Council Summer Fair in June.

Bring it to school on Friday 21st June or Saturday 22nd June, with an idea of how much you would like to sell it for. The BIKE SHED will then sell it for you, and 50% of the sale will go to PC funds, and you will be given the rest.

Do you need a second hand bicycle for your child ?

Then come to the BIKE SHED at the Summer Fair, we might just have what you are looking for and you will be helping raise funds for the PC aswell as being green by buying recycled/2nd hand bicycles.

Any Questions please see Mrs Scott (Primary 1)

Maths Challenge Day Success!

No problem for our maths stars!

St Joseph’s pupils, Andrea Bostock, Amy Robertson and Owen Izedonmwen, took part in the Scottish Mathematical Challenge Day at Aberdeen University today.

We are so very proud of them – they worked well as both a team and as individuals and came first in the relay maths quiz, were finalists in the maths poster competition and came third overall out of 28 schools – and only 3 points behind the winners!

Well done to you all!

Collection of 2nd hand adult clothes for the homeless

Our P1 classes have been learning about the Smartest Giant who helped out his friends who needed his clothes. We then also heard the story of the Good Samaritan who helped others. So for Lent, P1 are collecting second hand adult clothes for the homeless.

If you have jumpers, jackets, hats, gloves, socks, boots etc that would be suitable for a homeless person, please bring them into school to P1S or P1K by Monday 25th March. They will then be taken to the Cathedral to the Saint Vincent DePaul store where they help homeless people find the clothes that they need.

Thank you. Mrs Scott and Miss King
