Loirston Primary School Bulletin
A huge “Thank You” to everyone who attended the school Open Day on Thursday 28th September. It was fantastic to see the school so busy and full of enthusiastic children sharing their learning with family and friends. It is great to see how many of you supported this event and the children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their school day with you all. It was lovely to read the class sign in and comment books afterwards and share the positive messages left by parents, family and friends with staff. Another big “Thank You” must go out to all staff for their hard work and dedication to the children. I am sure you will all agree that they all do a fabulous job.
Another big “Thank You” to Jack’s Steakhouse for sponsoring our First Aid training for Primary 5, 6 and 7 pupils. The children received a full day of First Aid Training and are now awaiting their certificates to show their achievements.
As many of you will have seen on the Parent Council Facebook page, a Litter Pick and tidy up of the Wildlife Garden has been arranged for Sunday 15th October between 10.00am and 12.00pm. The Parent Council would appreciate as many volunteers as possible, even if you cannot stay for the full time, every little bit of help will be much appreciated.
It is with regret that I have to inform you that due to personal family circumstances I will not be returning to Loirston after the October break.
The school are being supported by the authority to recruit a permanent Head Teacher, the advert for applications for the post closes in the October holidays. In the interim period Miss Anderson and Mrs Pert will be in charge of the school on a day to day basis. The authority are seeking support from experienced Head Teachers within the city to support them with school development until a permanent Head Teacher can be appointed.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my short time at Loirston working with all staff, parents/carers and of course, the fantastic children.
As some of you may know Miss Anderson gets married very soon. As of the 13th November she will be Mrs Hidson. I am sure you will join me in wishing her the best of luck for her upcoming wedding. We hope you have a fabulous day!
