P4-7 show arrangements.


Dear Parents,

The pupils have been working so hard to learn their lines and their songs for our show next week. A few points to help the evening run smoothly;

  • Pupils should make their way to their classroom no earlier than 6.15pm. The door will open then to allow them in – please do not send them in before this time. Thank you.
  • Pupils can be collected from their classrooms after the show at approx 8.30/9pm.
  • We really appreciate the efforts made to get the children back to school in the evenings. It is wonderful for the children to experience the magic of performing to a live audience. It is a highlight of their school year.
  • Tickets will be collected at the gym hall door from 6.30pm onwards .
  • There will be a Fair trade stall selling refreshments each evening.
  • Programmes will be available for £1.

We hope you enjoy the show!

Summer Fair

**St Joseph’s Summer Fair**

This Saturday 22nd June 2019


Please come and explore an exciting range of new games and stalls along with some of the old favourites.

Try your hand at Mario-Kart Squirt, make a Minecraft cake, be face painted as Super Mario, have a ‘Crazy Hair’ do, take a Rickshaw ride, brave the Inflatable obstacle run, try your luck in the Tombolo, experience some fun with Aberdeen Oil Cats American Football or Rugby Tots, visit the Eco-group, enjoy the BBQ, strawberry tarts, candy floss and the free cuppa and treat with your adult entry fee and lots more…

This year we are introducing the St Joseph’s Craft Stall with exciting homemade items. There are house colour scrunchies, Beeswax Food Wraps, purses, belts, cushions etc. Hopefully this stall will become a regular feature at our Fairs. We encourage you to come, have a look and bring some extra pennies as we hope you will be tempted by what you see.

The raffle has an ever-growing list of prizes. Please do your best to sell your tickets and return the stubs by Thursday to school (or bring them to the fair). Remember there is a surprise for the best salesperson too!

We still require more Donations and Volunteers to make this a big success!

Please get in touch to help.

Many thanks

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!


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)
