P4 & P4/5 Enterprise

Dear Parent/ Carers,Our P4/P5 and P5 class groups will be running a range of enterprise stalls and activities in the gym hall during the morning on Monday 17 December.

There will be stalls selling Christmas themed items (ideal last minute gifts/stocking fillers) and other competition activities for children to try.

Your support for these classes’ entrepreneurial efforts will be greatly appreciated.

Loirston has been given the opportunity to be a part of a Junior NBA scheme in Aberdeen (for P6 and P7). We are one of four schools in the city participating, and one of 30 schools across 4 cities. Last Monday, two P7 pupil representatives and Mrs Greenhill travelled to Glasgow to be a part of the “Draft” and find out which team Loirston would be representing. They had the opportunity to meet a player from Caledonia Pride and Glasgow Rocks, and draw the team – New York Knicks, followed by some training

Primary 6 and 7 pupils had the opportunity to ‘try out’ for the team last Friday. Junior NBA games will take place at Lochside Academy after school on Fridays – more details to follow.In addition to the Junior NBA games, all P4-7 pupils are encouraged to come to basketball coaching after school on Wednesdays from 3.15-4.15. 15 (please note the coaches are external and there will be a small charge for this – tbc).
