Lights Camel Action

Well done all our P2, P3 and P4 pupils for your wonderful performance of Lights Camel Action – we are so proud of your achievement performing in front a packed hall of family, friends and fellow pupils for our Senior Citizens show this afternoon. You made us all smile and we were mighty impressed with how well you learnt your words and groovy actions! What a super celebration of the Christmas story working together as a first level team – well done! A huge thank you to all the staff members for working tirelessly to prepare the children involved from P1/2, P2, P2/3, P3, P3/4, P4 and P4/5 for the show – your efforts certainly paid off this afternoon, and thank you to parents for their behind the scenes support also, whether with costume, song practice or script rehearsing – all aspects of the show which came together so well today.  Thank you to everyone who joined us for the afternoon performance – you were a great, enthusiastic audience, so a genuine thank you for your support and generous donations for the school fund and Cancer Research UK, our school’s chosen charity for this session. The final word must go to our first level boys and girls – congratulations on today’s show. We hope you rest well over the weekend ahead of next week’s afternoon and evening performances and look forward to having another chance to see you in action…Lights Camel Action!

 

Christmas with the Aliens

What fantastic performances put on by our youngest pupils today: MOL’s nursery and P1 children gave their all to put on a great show in front of a large audience of family members and friends who came to enjoy the festive fun! We are very proud of how well everyone learnt their words, songs and dancing – we saw some fantastic flair throughout. Thank you again to the nursery and P1 staff team for their hard work organising and preparing the children for the show and to everyone at home also for helping your young ones to be ready for today, and for coming along to support. We are grateful for the generous donations to the school fund and the school’s chosen charity for this session Cancer Research UK. Lastly thank you to the enthusiastic MOLers for their memorable nativity performance  – it was out of this world!

Goodbye Miss Oliver

20181204_100242.jpg

This short blog post is designed to give a wee update on one of our dearest and longest serving members of staff-Christine Oliver.

As many of you will know, Miss Oliver was at MOL when the school first opened in Aug’11 and has worked as a PSA since that first day.

She has now officially been given the approval to begin early retirement and so officially leaves MOL on Dec 17th.

Although she has not been at MOL for a wee while now, she has always been very much a part of our team and to some of the older children, she remains a much loved staff member.

I am delighted that she is now able to fully focus on herself and look forward to a very healthy and rewarding next chapter of her life.

On behalf of all of the pupils and staff, thank you Christine and goodbye!

MOL Rep at Junior NBA Draft in Glasgow

Basketball 2Rocking a very early start and a long road trip, the excitement couldn’t be contained as Summer R (P6) and Ben M (P7) represented MOL at the Junior NBA draft in Glasgow City Chambers.  The amazing architecture of the building built in 1889 added to the grandure of the occasion and Ben was so impressed he set about taking pictures to share.

Eagerly waiting for the draw of the Pacific division of the Western Conference, MOL were second up on stage and Summer drew out the Los Angeles Lakers as our junior NBA team. This thrilled Ben as it is his favourite team!

Meeting Hannah Robb of Caledonia Pride and Kieron Achara, the captain of the GB and Scotland basketball teams was exciting and Ben asked him to sign his basketball.

A stroll around George Square taking in the Christmas decorations and market added to the occasion but was topped off by a ride for both Summer and Ben on the Ferris wheel!

After lunch in George Square, we walked up to the University of Strathclyde’s Sports Centre for the coaching clinic.  Summer and Ben thoroughly enjoyed the session and Ben was delighted as he won one of the challenges out of the 40 players attending from other schools from across the 4 participating cities, Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

With a little trip to the Clydeside Transport Museum to complete their museum quiz, Ben and Summer has an excellent day out and represented the school with pride.

On the way home, we have returned with our teams’ LA Lakers strips and we look forward to our games starting in January.  Our aim is to win the Pacific Division and qualify to go down to the emirates arena for the Final Four playoffs in March with an additional bonus the four teams get to stay to support the Glasgow Rocks in their BBL game after we play in the same stadium!

GO MOL!!
