This new Stockbridge band will practice before school for 45 minutes. We will learn to play and perform music in all styles. There will be lots of possibilities to compose, arrange and improvise. The band will aim to become the flagship of the school, and perform regularly at school events and in the wider community. We will also look to record our music!

Band practice will take place on a Tuesday 8.10 – 8.55am (Dates this term will be January – 16,23,30 Feb – 6,20,27 March – 6,13,20,27)

There will be no cost for the first session but we will charge £2.00 per week for all other sessions (a parentpay payment will be set up after the first session to cover staffing costs).  We do not want cost to prohibit attendance so please contact the school office if you have difficulty covering these costs.

Best wishes,

Mr Briggs and Ms Calder-Kelly

Primary 5 have been creating beautiful calendars from some of their detailed art work. They decided as a class this was how they were going to fundraise for extra classrooms for our partner school, Mpeni Primary. We raised a wonderful £208.50! Well done P5!

End of Term Notices

Only 3 days to go…

Parent Pay

There are currently 71 outstanding payments for the Christmas Show. As you are aware we are not able to provide enrichment opportunities such as these for your children if we do not recoup  the costs.  Please make this payment on Parent Pay before the end of term. Many thanks to those of you who provided an extra donation for those who may find it difficult to contribute.

Lunches

Please order your lunches for the first week of the new term by midnight tomorrow.

Christmas Carol Concert – THURSDAY

Our end of term Christmas Carol Concert will begin at 1.45pm at Stockbridge Parish Church.  Following the Concert, please allow the children to return to school with their class where they will be dismissed at their usual time.  Please can all children come to school in full school uniform but bring something Christmassy to wear to the church such as a Santa hat or a piece of tinsel.  All parents are warmly invited to attend.

Final Day

School will finish at 12, midday on Friday 22nd December. School staff also finish at this time and as such it is very important that children are collected promptly.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all parents a wonderful Christmas and New Year.  I look forward to seeing the children return refreshed from the Christmas break on TUESDAY the 9th JANUARY.

 

Best wishes,

Faye Calder-Kelly

P1 & 2 Away in a Manger

Primary 1 & 2 are going to be performing Away in a Manger at the Church service. As well as singing the song we will also be using sign language.

Have a look and practise at home:

Nursery visit Life Care

Today the morning nursery class visited the LifeCare Centre to perform our Christmas show for the service users. Everyone tried really hard to remember all their dances, songs and actions. We finished off our performance with some Christmas songs and chatted to some service users about what we were hoping to get from Santa for Christmas. All of the staff were very proud of the children. Well done!
