Fifth Eco Flag Awarded

Congratulations to our school Eco Committee, led by Mrs Coubrough and Mrs Cochrane, who have worked extremely hard this year to gain a fifth Eco Flag for our school!  This is a huge achievement and we are very grateful to them for their hard work!

The following themes were our focus –

Litter – with a focus on face masks

Water – with a focus on pollution in oceans

Waste – with a focus on minimising waste.

All of the classes supported the Eco committee by taking part in various Eco activities throughout the year – including through lockdowns, where lots of children took part in Eco activities from their own home.  A huge thanks goes to all of the pupils and parents and carers who supported the Eco Committee to achieve this award.

End of Year Awards

AWARDS

Every year at the end of term we issue awards to pupils who have achieved above and beyond the norm.  This year, although we were unable to host our awards ceremony in the usual way, we were still able to allow the pupils to take part in the awards ceremony, via a Google Meet in their own classroom. We always end the year proud of our pupils but this year the children have surpassed our expectations in every way, in what has been a very difficult year.  The children coped admirably with the many changes which were brought about due to Covid and they have remained positive and hardworking throughout the year during home learning and learning in school.  We are proud of each and every child, whether they received an award or not.

CITIZEN OF THE YEAR

Congratulations to the children who were nominated as ‘Citizens of the Year’ this year.  These children were deemed to be the most respectful, kind and caring children in our school.  It was a very tough decision because we are very proud to say that all of our pupils are respectful, kind and caring and this has been evident throughout the year when they have received Citizen of the Week awards and have also gained many points for their House.  We would like to say a huge well done to all of our pupils for being the best they can be this year, especially considering the circumstances surrounding Covid 19.

PAMELA EASTON RESILIENCE AWARD

As we live our lives there are times when things don’t turn out as we would wish and we have to learn to deal with these setbacks.  Some children, like some adults, have more resilience than others.  We know that children can be taught strategies that help them become more resilient.  Over the course of the past year we have started to teach the children about resilience.  This is particularly important given the times in which we have been living.
As a legacy upon her retirement, Mrs Easton decided to donate an annual trophy to be awarded to the child who showed the most resilience across the year.  Within each class there will be a certificate awarded to the child who is most resilient and then from these children one child will be awarded the ‘Pamela Easton Resilience Award’.

Overall Winner – Flynn Murphy

P1/2 – Phoebe Japp

P2/3 – Skye Hamilton

P3/4/5 – Flynn Murphy

P5/6 – Barrie Forrester

P6/7 – Louisa Dick

The children earn points all year for being good citizens and for displaying good manners, behaviour and for working hard. These points are counted each week by the House Captains, with support from Mrs Shearer and the weekly total for each house is announced to each class. At the end of the year, the points determine which house has won overall.

This year the winning house was – COUTHALLY. 

Well done to every child who has earned points for their house.

INTERHOUSE SPORTS AWARDS

Sports were slightly different this year but we did manage to do most of our interhouse sports events in our class bubbles and each class had their own sports day, earning individual points which contributed to their house overall scores.  The results are as follows –
