Reverse Advent Calendar

Dear Parent / Carer

The grand total raised for Children in Need including the selling of the dough rings was an amazing £621.48.

The charity committee have decided to help local charities this Christmas and we have decided to participate in the “Reverse Advent Calendar”

Each class will be given an empty box and every day throughout the month of December the children will be encouraged to put an item in the box from the list below.

Food Items

  • Tinned Meals (macaroni, mince, steak)
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Cooking sauce
  • Soup
  • Baked Beans

Non Food Items

  • Toiletries (soap, deodorant, toothpaste, shaving products)
  • Nappies – various sizes
  • Children’s toys

It would be fantastic if your child could bring one or more of these items to school throughout December.

Thank  you for your support

Outdoor Learning Group Container Support

Outdoor Learning Group Container Support

 

One of our pupil participation groups is an outdoor learning group.  The group are making plans to make increased use of our outdoor spaces to support learning.

We have had an offer of a shipping container to store outdoor equipment in within the school grounds.

In order to be able to take up this kind offer we need to source help with the provision of either a forklift truck or a lorry with a lifting crane in order to unload the container from the delivery truck in to the school grounds.

If you are connected with a business which could help the school with this request please call the school on 01224 897686.

Thank you in anticipation of your offer of assistance.

K.A.F.K.A.H. – 2018 Shoe Box Appeal

K.A.F.K.A.H. – 2018 Shoe Box Appeal

 

Loirston School is keen to support the charity, Kids Acting for Kids Abroad and Home (KAFKAH) again for the 13th year running. This year’s recipients will be the children of Kosovo whose lives have been disrupted by war. There are two ways that you can donate to the appeal. The first is to pack your own shoebox or just donate any of the items in a bag. The charity advises us that it is helpful if your box is labelled to state whether it is for a boy or a girl and for which age group – baby, 2-4, 5-7, 8-10, 10-12, 12-14 or teen, it would be most suited to.

 

We ask that if you are gift wrapping a box you should wrap the lid and box separately.

 

Donations can take the form of pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers, notepads, colouring items, games, CDs, tapes and especially toiletries, jewellery, hair/nail stuff, new clothes, socks, hats, gloves, toys, small cuddly toys, sweets – (please make sure that sweets are well in date) non chocolate is best. In fact, anything that can fit in a shoebox. Last year KAFKAH were particularly short of pencil sharpeners and toothpaste! Please do not include used cothes.

 

Each donation is greatly appreciated by the charity so please be assured that even bringing one item for a box is just as valuable a donation.

 

£2.00 on the box really helps towards the charity’s transportation costs (It cost £1550 to send the boxes last year).

 

KAFKAH are collecting the donations from school on 4th December so please hand in your donation prior to this date.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

P.E.Guidelines

Dear Parents/Carers,

PE Guidelines

The Aberdeen City Physical Education guidelines state clearly that all jewellery must be removed for PE.  

Unfortunately there are still some children coming to PE lessons wearing jewellery.

All our children are be aware of their PE days.  Therefore, we would ask for your support in ensuring that on these days all jewellery (including stud earrings) is kept at home.  

Jewellery is not permitted to be worn during PE lessons for reasons of personal safety.  Any child who continues to come to PE lessons wearing jewellery will in future not be able to participate in the main planned activities but will be given an alternative written task to undertake.  

Thank you for your cooperation over this matter.
