New School Building Begins!

Now that Robertson's have begun the foundation work for our new school on Alexander Street, we have had Jane Elder to talk to the children about the new school and most importantly site safety.

Jane will return during the build to keep the children updated and to answer their questions.  If you haven't seen the plans yet, pop into school as they are on display in reception.

V and A Bonnet makers Design Project

If you know someone in P5/4 be sure to ask them about the V & A Bonnetmakers Project!  The class went with pupils from Our Ladys RC PS today to the Vision Building where they had a design jam, making hats.  Real hats designed by the children are being produced by milliners and will be on parade soon!

Water Bottles

Please can we remind you that children may have a water bottle for use in class.  Juice, fruit shoots, flavoured water, cans etc. are not permitted.  A refillable bottle, labelled with the child's name can be kept in class and we will send these home for cleaning periodically.  Thank you for your co-operation!

Dudhope Castle

Primaries one and two had a walk down to Dudhope Castle as part of their new Castles topic.  They were able to get a close up look and had lots of things to think about when they came back to school. 

Scottish Country Dance Festival

Hot on the heels of our successful Scottish Night, P5/4 went along to Fintry Primary School to take part in Dundee Active Schools Scottish Country Dance Festival.  They danced some new sets as well as those they have already learned.  Many thanks to Mrs MacGillivray, a class Granny, for coming along to help out!
