End of term news…

It’s hard to believe we’re already at the October holidays! It’s been a busy term with lots of the fun and adventure that you expect here at MOL.

At a recent celebration assembly we had a huge variety of success to celebrate. All these individual pupils were nominated for their effort in class with learning and positive attitude. Pupils were recognised for ‘putting 100% into everything’, marvellous moving around the school, being kind and helping others. This is so fantastic to hear.

And finally, we have also had special mention of some of our pupils who have worked hard to fundraise for fellow pupil, Sophia. Ryan (P5/6) raised more than £750 by smashing his target of climbing 25,000cms, Cerys (P7) raised £50 by baking and selling her cakes in her street. and Katie (P4/5) raised £40 running the Baxter’s 5km. Well done!

All across the school from P1 – P7  there has been a huge amount of learning, including thinking about the world around us and our impact on the climate. Our youngest pupils have been learning about how to keep our ocean animals safe by reducing pollution. These are fantastic learning opportunities as we think and learn more about being sustainable.

Of course we also had our fantastic MOL MUDder just this week. We can announce that the total is currently running at £3246.00. We know there is still more to collect, and if you have still to bring your sponsor  money in to school, please don’t worry, just bring it in after the holidays.

You may also have noticed our newly painted raised beds in the courtyard and re-structured willow dome. We owe a huge thank you to Faith Works for all their support to the school – what a wonderful job, thank you!

We hope the sun shines on everyone and look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday October 28th re-charged and raring to go for Term 2. Happy Holidays!

More from the MOL MUDder

A big thank you to everyone who donated for the day today, whether with straw bales, camouflage gear or cargo nets! We are especially grateful to Mr McLaren for a brilliant new MOL banner, Mr Hutcheson for the straw bales and Mr Munro for the loan of the trailer to transport the bales! Thank you too to the children for their enthusiasm and to all the families for their encouragement, and for wrestling with the washing after school today! We have already received some sponsor money in school for today – thank you! We will update our fundraising total on Friday.


Muddy muddy muddy!

What an action packed day with adventure, challenge and teamwork outdoors at MOL. The pupils (and adults!) at the school took to the MOL MUDder challenge and had fantastic fun whilst working to raise money for the school. A special thank you to Miss Hutcheson, the house captain team and the P7s as a whole for masterminding the event and providing ongoing logistical throughout the day, as well as a whole lot of encouragement too! Below are some pictures from the day below which capture the MOL MUDder mood here today – more to follow later! All that remains to be said is a special plea for all sponsor moneys to be handed in on FRIDAY October 11th so that we can have a MOL MUDder fundraising total by the end of this week. We are grateful for any contribution toward this for our school. Thank you!



Don’t forget – tomorrow is our action day with our very first sponsored MOL MUDder event! Please remember to come to school wearing clothes that can get wet/muddy and bring a complete change of clothes, spare shoes and a towel for when you’ve completed the challenge! We are excited about this new event at the school and hope everyone will enjoy themselves with this new challenge. There will be lots of helpers outdoors to lend a hand and cheer the children on!

Please also remember all sponsor money should be returned to school on Friday so we can announce the fundraising total for the event before the holidays begin. Thank you!
