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

Whole School Charter

As part of of journey to becoming a Rights Respecting School, we set about making a whole school charter. We gathered the views of pupils, parents and staff to decide which 4 UNCRC rights should form our charter. The final four are included below.   Thank you to everyone who took part in choosing the rights and who decorated a butterfly for our dining room.  The display is looking beautiful which more butterflies being added each week.
