The winners of the Chrismas card competition was also announced. Well done to Aiden (1st Place), Callum Govan (2nd Place) and Paul Gant (3rd Place).
We have been very lucky to have Coatbridge Rovers visiting the school on Wednesdays. They have been teaching the boys football skills, which has been enjoyed by all!
Mrs Quinn's class have been busy campaigning against litter. The boys have been watching videos showing the dangerous effect dropping litter can have on animals. They made leaflets, encouraging people to put their litter in the bin, and gave them out to members of the public at Drumpellier Park. Well done boys!
As part of there Sports Leadership, Barrie and Callum G, have started a Junior Basketball club on a Wedensday break. The boys are showing
excellent leadership and management skills.
