Children in Need 2014

We had a very successful Children in Need day at Sgoil a’ Bhac this year, with an amazing total of £436.69 being raised through a fancy dress day, a bake sale, tombola, face painting and competitions. We would like to express our thanks to all the parents who supported us by donating baking to the sale. It was a huge hit with pupils and added a great deal to our final total. We would also like to thank parents and families for helping children to create brilliant costumes for the day.

Remembrance Day Assembly


This year, our commemoration of Remembrance Day on 11th November took place at a special assembly led by our English P5 and P6 pupils. They have been working on a class topic about WW1 and shared their learning with the other pupils of the school and parents and families who were able to join us for the service. As part of the service, Rev. Macleod led us in marking the traditional two-minute silence.DSCN0815

Sgire a’ Bhac Community Remembrance Service

On a bright and sunny Sunday morning, Ross Maciver and Claire Steven from Sgoil a’ Bhac gathered with the many members of the community to participate in a service of Remembrance at the war memorial in Back. As part of the ceremony, they laid a wreath on behalf of all the children and staff of the school.


They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them.

Shoebox Appeal 2014


88 shoeboxes with some of the children who donated them.

There were an impressive 88 shoeboxes collected at the school this year for the annual Blythswood Shoebox Appeal. We would like to thank all the children, families and staff who donated to the appeal this year.

The shoeboxes have now left the school and have begun their journey to eastern Europe to bring some seasonal cheer to those in need.

G4-5 Gardeners

The pupils of Gaelic P4-5 have been very busy preparing a new flower bed in the garden area at the front of the school. Last Friday, they spent the afternoon planting spring bulbs that will hopefully provide a splash of colour as the growing season begins again next year.
