Leading to Leave a Legacy

On Friday 24th November our three P6 Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) took the lead to encourage everyone to be bright and be seen this winter and showed a video to explain why 20mph speed limits make roads safer. Mrs Gibb and P4C received reflective prizes for being the most brightly dressed.

The Pupil Council is leading a consultation on a proposal to extend the playground and everyone in the Hall was asked to signal with a show of hands if they were in favour. Pupil Council reps from P2-P7 are also debating this proposal in class and collecting feedback comments for Mrs Noble.

Mr Howie led an inspirational presentation, designed to help pupils realise how they can take the lead to work individually and as a team to create and leave a lasting legacy, using the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team's philosophies as a theme.

P7 Sports Captains led congratulations on pupils' recent achievements and issued certificates to P7 Sportshall Athletics Finalists.

Thank you to EVERYONE involved in the fair!

A HUGE thank you to everyone for:
  • Organising and leading the various stalls and activities
  • Volunteering – many of you went above and beyond and stayed longer than you signed up to help!
  • Donating items and foods generously
  • Coming along, especially for waiting patiently in the freezing weather.
You all made the Sciennes Winter Fair 2017 a tremendous success.
And together we raised over £6,000 which is an incredible achievement!
We hope that you all really enjoyed the fair.
Jay (Events & Fundraising Group Convenor), and all in Sciennes Parent Council
