Pupil Council

Our new pupil council has had it's first meeting of 2016-17 with representatives from every class bringing ideas from every year group.  The pupils were elected by the children and are helped by the Head Boy and Girl.

Discovery School in Residence

We are very excited to announce that we have been chosen as RRS Discovery's School in Residence for 2016-2017.  This will mean lots of exciting activities in partnership with the learning team at Discovery Point.  Our first is to walk the same distance as Captain Scott walked from Discovery in 1902!  More details soon!

House Captains

Meet our team of House Captains.  They each have a buddy group of P1 - P7s to organise in school - Emerald, Jade, Crimson, Scarlet, Cobalt, Sapphire, Lemon and Gold.   They also help Staff in many ways during the school day. 

Names and Notes!

It would help us reunite belongings if you could name every item with a permanent marker. Coats, shoes and gym shoes, shorts and t-shirts, schoolbags and gym bags, jumpers and cardis, pinafores and trousers....even water bottles, lunch boxes and schoolbags!  We hope to end the year with no unclaimed, lost items.  Thank you!

Please remember to check your child's schoolbag daily for letters and notes that we send home. These will contain important information that we don't want you to miss.  Thanks!

Codebank success at Games Jam

Our P7 team of coders - Ziad, Erin, Jamie and Maham, had a fantastic day at the School of Computing in Dundee University on Friday. 

They competed against 60 children from 15 schools in Dundee to create a computer game in two and a half hours.  Following judging by industry experts three teams went to a presentation and voting round.  In this round the teams had to present their game to all the children and adults in the lecture theatre. There was then an electronic vote.There was very stiff competition from Claypotts Castle and Craigowl in the final vote, but Rosebank were the winners!  

They were presented with the Games Jam Trophy, prizes and cerificates.  Later they appeared on STV news and they were also in the Courier.  Congratulations on Twitter came from as far away as Code Club in Australia!

The win is a tribute to their teamwork, planning, concentration, graphic skills, coding knowledge, problem solving and confident speaking.  All skills for life and work which were in evidence throughout the competition.  Well done team Codebank!
