Remembrance Day

The Nursery joined the school pupils and staff for the 2 minute silence. Then the P4-7 children read out poems that they had written themselves.

“People risked their lives for us

Others suffered great consequences

Poppies are a good way to help us remember

People at war had to live in dreadful trenches

You must always remember how lucky you are

to have your Ma and Pa

Despite the consequences they still had to be strong

and although they were afield

they would never forget their families

You must always remember Flanders Field”

By Tom Primary 6.




Blythswood Shoebox Appeal

The children at the school donated 18 shoeboxes to the Blythswood Shoebox Appeal. Thank you to everyone who supported the appeal.

At the Shoebox Appeal Day last Saturday, all the shoeboxes from the Bracadale area were collected and an amazing amount of 931 were counted. Donations were also made which will go towards covering the cost of transporting the boxes abroad.
