Congratulations and welcome to Loirston School to Mrs Smith, Miss Leiper and Mr. Anderson who have secured full-time permanent contracts with Aberdeen City Council.

 

Before the end of term, pupils will be introduced to their class teacher and shown their main teaching area.

 

During Term 1, the Senior Management Team wish to put the following procedures in place with regard to entering and exiting of pupils through the outside unit doors.

 

YELLOW UNIT

Bell rings at 9 o’clock and door opens.  Pupils have free access – i.e. no lines at this time.  The doors will be closed at 9.05 a.m.  Further entry and exit at interval and lunchtime will be made through the yellow unit doors.

 

BLUE UNIT

Bell rings at 9 o’clock and door opens.  Pupils in P4A, P4B, P5 and P6 will have free access and should make their way to pegs and then their class area.  Further entry and exit at interval and lunchtime will be made through the blue unit doors.

 

RED UNIT

Bell rings at 9 o’clock and door opens.  Pupils in P1 have their own information with regard to the start of the new term.  Pupils in P2 and P3 will line up in their classes and be collected by the class teacher outside the red unit door.  They will be escorted to pegs and class areas by class teachers.  Red unit pupils will exit for interval and lunch from the red unit.

 

Blue unit pupils (P2/3 and P3) will exit for interval from the blue unit.

Blue unit pupils (P2/3 and P3), home lunches, will exit from the red unit.

Blue unit pupils (P2/3 and P3), school and packed lunches will exit from the blue unit.

 

At the end of the day at 3.15 p.m. all Primary 1 to Primary 3 pupils will exit from the red unit and be collected by parents/childminders.

 

The above procedures will be monitored and reviewed throughout the term.

 

Yours sincerely,

Head Teacher Resignation

Dear Parents,

 

As you know Mrs Thom has been on sick leave since November and I have been informed today that she intends to resign from her post as Head Teacher at Loirston School with effect from 31st August 2008.

 

The local authority has begun the process of finding her replacement.

 

Mrs Thom has been Head Teacher here since 2001 and I am sure you will join with me in wishing her a long and happy retirement.  If you wish to contribute towards a leaving gift to mark her service to the school please send your donation in a marked envelope to school before the end of term.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

June Stewart

Head Teacher (Seconded)

 

P6 Enterprise

Dear Parents,

 

P6 have created a business called Café Français 2008.  Our French Café will be open to all pupils in the school on 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th June.  We will be serving crêpes and orange juice at the cost of £1 each. All classes will visit the café at some time and we will let you know when it is. You could send the £1 to school any time from now.

 

The café is also open to parents on 20th and 27th June at 12:30pm. We can only serve 20 customers at any one-day. So, if you want to come, fill in the reply at the bottom of this letter.  FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. You will be served Soupe à l’oignon (French Onion Soup) and Croque Monsieur (cheesy toast) at a cost of £4.50.  The waiters and kitchen staff will be P5 and P6 children who will serve you while speaking French.

 

We will also have on sale a selection of chocolates and an international cookbook.


We hope to see you at our French Café.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

P6
