CnaG ASC Consultation

Following meetings held recently with CNES and CnaG regarding the proposed changes to the provision of Gaelic After School Club at Sgoil a’ Bhac, a consultation is being circulated to establish the level of interest in a paid club run by CnaG.

In the first instance, places will be made available to pupils in Gaelic Medium classes and, if there are places remaining, a further consultation will be held for English Medium to see if there’s  interest in EM children attending the paid Gaelic club.

We’d be grateful if parents from Sgoil Araich Loch a Tuath and GM1-6 classes could complete the attached consultation slip (page 2) and return it to school as soon as possible.

Parent & Carer Survey – May 2015

During the month of May, the school is running a major self-evaluation exercise to help us gather evidence about our strengths and to help us identify areas for improvement. As part of this process we want to gather the views and options of our parent group in both the school and Sgoil Araich Loch a Tuath.

We would be very grateful if parents/carers could spare a few minutes to complete the survey below. Please answer any questions that are applicable to you and there is a space for additional comments on the last page. Although the survey is anonymous, you can add your name at the end, if you wish.

Please return it to the school by Friday 22nd May 2015

Sharing the Learning at Pupil-Led Events

Today, we held our annual pupil-led events with our Sgoil Araich, E1-2 and G1-3 classes welcoming parents to visit in the afternoon and our other classes in the evening.

The children thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to share with parents and families the learning they’ve been doing throughout this year and we’d like to thank everyone who was able to join us during both the afternoon and the evening.

We’d also like to thank our pupils and staff for all the hard work they put into preparing for this event.

Scholastic Book Fair

A very successful Scholastic Bookfair was run by GP6/7 as a Scholastic Business School.  It went beyond just literacy and it encouraged the pupils to develop real-world skills including financial awareness, creative thinking, responsibility and teamwork. Pupils had to apply for positions by filling in application forms, submitting CVs and writing letters. This year the total rewards came to £510.05 which will be spent to stock up our library.

Pupils were responsible for the advertising, displaying, selling, ordering and totalling up the money each day. Alongside the bookfair pupils, as events co-ordinators, organised competitions. Below is Eilidh, winner of the cake competition  The cake was baked and decorated by Ellie GP7 tying in with the Book Fair theme.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

GP6/7 and EP5/6 have been studying The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis. They have been reading and critically analysing the text in class and have been coming together for various activities. Throughout the term they have worked together on a project to transform an area of the school into Narnia. Mr Smith, the Art teacher, has worked with both classes to create a spectacular wall display. Both classes have also created 3D objects which has helped in  developing their problem solving, planning, creating and designing skills.

 

Here are some pictures of the early stages of the work.
